Transcript

  • 1. Romans 6:1-9
    • 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
    • 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
    • 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
    • 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
    • 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
    • 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
    • 6:7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
    • 6:8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
    • 6:9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
  • 2. Romans 6:10-18
    • 6:10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
    • 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    • 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
    • 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
    • 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
    • 6:15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
    • 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
    • 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
    • 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
  • 3. GRAVEYARD RELIGION
  • 4. Romans 6:3-4, 6
    • “ Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ, were baptized into his death?”
    • “ Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: That like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”
    • “ . . . our old man is crucified with him,
    • that the body of sin might be destroyed,
    • that henceforth we should not serve sin.”
  • 5. The Life of Victory, Mead MacGuire
    • “ Undoubtedly the great difficulty with the majority of believers is that, they are trying to live Christ’s life without first having died Christ’s death. They seem to have the notion that Christ died so that we need not die, and so, through faith in Christ, they hope to live without dying.
    • Romans 8:8 “They that are in the flesh cannot please God’”
    • Galatians 5:24
    • “ they that are Christ’s,
    • have crucified the flesh”
  • 6. SDA Bible Commentary, vol. 6, p. 1075
    • “ The new birth is a rare experience in this age of the world. This is the reason why there are so many problems in the churches. Many…. who assume the name of Christ, are unsanctified and unholy. They have been baptized, but they were buried alive. Self did not die, and therefore they did not rise to newness of life in Christ.”
  • 7. 2 Corinthians 5:17
    • “ Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: (creation)
    • Old passed away;
    • Behold, all things are become new.”
  • 8. Matthew 16:25
    • “ For whosoever will save his life shall lose it:
    • And whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”
  • 9.
    • “ There is a great difference between sins and sin.
    • Many find serious difficulty in their Christian life because they do not understand this distinction.
    • Beneath all our acts of transgression, is the principle of sin from which they spring.
    • Though all our evil deeds were pardoned, we would still go on sinning.
    • Something more must be done for us, than simply to pardon our sins.”
  • 10. The distinction between sins and sin
    • Sins
    • Acts of disobedience, transgressions of the divine law,
    • God is always ready to forgive,
    • Through the merits of Christ,
    • In response to the prayer of penitence and faith.
    • Sin ,
    • God cannot forgive.
    • Sin is the nature which leads us to disobey God’s law.
    • The nature with which we come into the world does not change
  • 11. John 3:6
    • “ That which is born of the flesh is flesh;
    • And that which is born of the Spirit is spirit”
  • 12. “ BORN AGAIN ”
  • 13. Romans 6:11
    • Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin,
    • But alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
  • 14.
    • “ If the old nature were dead,
    • you would not have been tempted.”
  • 15. Galatians 5:24
    • “ . . . they that are Christ’s,
    • have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.”
  • 16. SM2, p. 243
    • “ We should daily dedicate ourselves to God and believe He accepts the sacrifice, without examining whether we have that degree of feeling, that corresponds with our faith.
    • Feeling and faith are as distinct as the east is from the west.
    • Faith is not dependent upon feeling .
    • We must earnestly cry to God in faith, feeling or no feeling, and then live our prayers.
    • Our assurance and evidence is God’s word, and after we have asked, we must believe without doubting.”
  • 17. T1, p. 167
    • “ . . . God must be served from principle instead of from feeling . . . Confound not faith and feeling together. They are distinct. Faith is ours to exercise. This faith we must keep in exercise. Believe, believe. Let your faith take hold of the blessing, and it is yours. Your feelings have nothing to do with this faith. When faith brings the blessing to your heart, and you rejoice in the blessing, it is no more faith, but feeling.”
  • 18. Luke 10:17
    • “ And the seventy returned again with joy , saying, Lord,
    • even the devils are subject unto us through Thy name.”
  • 19. Luke 10:18
    • And he said unto them,
    • I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”
  • 20. Luke 10:19-20
    • “ Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy:
    • And nothing shall by any means hurt you.
    • Notwithstanding in this rejoice not,
    • That the spirits are subject unto you;
    • But rather rejoice,
    • Because your names are written in heaven.”
  • 21. Temperance, p. 276
    • “ There are but two powers that control the minds of men.
    • The power of God and the power of Satan.”
  • 22. Adventist Home, p.128
    • “ Put to death,
    • the temptation to sin.”
  • 23. John 12:24
    • “ . . . Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone;
    • But if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.”
  • 24. 2 Corinthians 4:10-12
    • “ Always bearing about in the body,
    • the dying of the Lord Jesus,
    • That the life also of Jesus, might be made manifest in our body.
    • So then death worketh in us, but life in you.”
  • 25. Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 69
    • “ Christ is waiting with longing desire, for the manifestation of Himself in His church.
    • When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in His people,
    • Then He will come to claim them as His own.”
  • 26. John 14:16 I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever.
    • There are souls famishing for the bread of life, thirsting for the waters of salvation…
    • The Spirit of God is appealing to men, presenting to them, their moral obligation to love and serve Him with heart, might, mind, and strength, and to love their neighbors as themselves.
    • The Holy Spirit moves upon the inner self,
    • until it becomes conscious of the divine power of God,
    • And every spiritual faculty, is quickened to decided action. . .
  • 27. John 14:16 I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever.
    • A deep, thorough work is to be wrought in the soul, which the world cannot see.
    • Those who know not what it is to have an experience in the things of God,
    • Who have not the witness of the Holy Spirit,
    • that they are accepted of Jesus Christ,
    • Are in need of being born again. . . .
  • 28. John 14:16 I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever.
    • The word of Christ,
    • that cuts directly across human desires and indulgences, and condemns popular habits and practices,
    • The Word which was made flesh and dwelt among us,
    • Is ignored and despised.
    • The teachings and example of Christ, are not made the criterion for the life of the professed follower of Christ.
    • Many who name the name of Christ, are walking in the light of the sparks of their own kindling, rather than following in the footsteps of their professed Master.
    • They do not represent the same character that Christ represented in His pure, sincere
    • love to God ,
    • And in
    • His love for fallen man .
  • 29. John 14:16 I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever.
    • Those who not only hear, but do the words of Christ, make manifest in character , the operation of the Holy Spirit. The result of the internal operation of the Holy Spirit, is demonstrated in the outward conduct. The life of the Christian is hid with Christ in God, and God acknowledges those who are His, declaring,
    • "Ye are My witnesses."
    • They testify that divine power is influencing their hearts and shaping their conduct. Their works give evidence that the Spirit is moving upon the inward man;
    • Those who are associated with them, are convinced that they are making Jesus Christ their pattern.
