  1. 1. THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST COMES TO MANKIND TO SET THEM FREE FROM SIN Charles e Whisnant, April 3, 2011 Romans 6:-3-4 45.70KNOW YE NOT, THAT SO MANY OF US AS WERE BAPTIZED UNTO JESUS CHRIST WEREBAPTIZED INTO HIS DEATH. THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST COMES TO MANKIND TO SET THEM FREE FROM SINIn Romans 6, Paul sets out to demonstrate the effectiveness of grace to deal with sin. Grace features the savingwork of both Christ (Romans 6:1-7:6) and the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:1-30). The law, on the other hand, isineffective (Romans 7:7-25).i1A WE ARE BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST: (principle #1)BUT WE WERE “BAPATIZO” IN TO CHRIST.BAPTIZED907ii  My life was “fused” with Jesus Christ.  I was “baptized” immersed, submersed into Christ.  When you were saved you were immersed into Jesus Christ.  1 Corinthians 10:2 2And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; o Means come under authority of Moses, to participate in the Mosaic leadership. o What God was doing for Moses so he was doing to them. Infused them into Him.  We were baptized, placed in to Jesus Christ, deeply into Christ  It is not talking about H2O  But a personal fellowship with Christ.  1 John 1:3: 3That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.  1 Corinthians: 6 17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. o Alters its condition or its relationship to its previous environment.Here in Romans 6:3 and 4 and Galatians 3:27-28, baptism is meant symbolic  Why? Well, water baptism cannot put a sinner into Jesus Christ. Only the Holy Spirit can do that. Romans 8:9 and 1 Corinthians 12:13:  Water baptism is a public witness of the person’s identification with Christ, while Spirit baptism is the personal and private experience that identifies the person with Christ.WHAT I WANT YOU TO KNOW IS THIS: 1 Charles e. Whisnant Romans 6 3-4 outline 04 03 11
  2. 2.  We are spiritually introduced or placed into a new environment, union with Christ, an unbreakable joining together with Christ, an unbreakable union which forever alters the individual’s relationship to their previous environment.2A PRINCIPLE #2 HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED INTO HIS DEATHWERE BAPTIZED INTO JESUS CHRIST INTO HIS DEATH  Aorist tense = past completed, fully accomplished, historical act.  Picture’s the believer’s identification with Christ’s death, here also means in relationship with the power of sin. Romans 6:10  It’s the GALATIANS 2:20 VIEWTHEREFOREIn light of the truth that we “have been baptized into His (Christ Jesus) death” There has been a burial.WE ARE BURIED4916 WITH HIM IN BAPTISM Vs. 4aNow we are BURIED in His death and raised in His RESURRECTION, in order that we might be raised in tonew life.  Colossians 2:12-13, 1 Peter 3:21BURIED WITH CHRIST  Together with. Our burial with Christ signifies the believer’s participation in His death by virtue of our unbreakable coming together with Him.THAT LIKE AS CHRIST WAS RAISED UP FROM THE DEAD 2443iiiOr IN ORDER THAT  In order that, the purpose of, as in this case the believer’s spiritual baptism into Christ’s death, the ultimate purpose being that we might experience “newness of life.” AS5618 iv  Even as, just as, exactly like….WAS RAISED1453v  That is, there was an awakening from sleep. Figuratively it meant to cause to return to life. Ephesians 2:5-6.THE DEAD3498vi 2 Charles e. Whisnant Romans 6 3-4 outline 04 03 11
  3. 3.  So the purpose of you dying to SIN is so you could LIVE unto GOD.BY THE GLORY OF THE FATHER  Which Christ was raised not only by God’s power, but by the glory of the Father.  1 Corinthians 6:14, 2 Corinthians 8:4.  The sanctification of believers to the power of the glory of God 4043 (PERIPATEO viiEVEN SO WE ALSO COULD WALK )  Figuratively refers to one’s manner of life, to one’s habitual way or bent of life or to one’s life-style. o To regulate one’s life, to conduct one’s self,  So with the purpose of the co-resurrection with Christ.IN NEWNESS OF2538 kainotes  A new sense that it brings into the world a new quality of things which did not exist before.viii 2198 ZOEixLIFE  That fullness of life, a blessed life, a life that satisfies and can be lived as God had it in mind.  LIFE: His life is now in us as BELIEVERS, as a motivating, energizing, pulsating principle of existence that has the potential to transform every believer’s life. 3 Charles e.

  4. 4. i BAPTIZED 1. to dip repeatedly, to immerse, to submerge (of vessels sunk) 2. to cleanse by dipping or submerging, to wash, to make clean with water, to wash ones self, bathe 3. to overwhelm  Not to be confused with 911, bapto. The clearest example that shows the meaning of baptizo is a text from the Greek poet and physician Nicander, who lived about 200 B.C. It is a recipe for making pickles and is helpful because it uses both words. Nicander says that in order to make a pickle, the vegetable should first be dipped (bapto) into boiling water and then baptised (baptizo) in the vinegar solution. Both verbs concern the immersing of vegetables in a solution. But the first is temporary. The second, the act of baptising the vegetable, produces a permanent change. When used in the New Testament, this word more often refers to our union and identification with Christ than to our water baptism. e.g. Mark 16:16. He that believes and is baptised shall be saved. Christ is saying that mere intellectual assent is not enough. There must be a union with him, a real change, like the vegetable to the pickle!
