Sabbath school lesson 7, 4th quarter of 2017

  1. 1. Lesson 7 for November 18, 2017 Adapted From www.fustero.es www.gmahktanjungpinang.org Romans 6:14 ““Sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace”
  2. 2. How does grace abound MUCH MORE when sin abounds? Grace is enough to forgive every sin. Grace solves the terrible results of sin. Grace defeats death and gives us eternal life through Jesus. Grace can transform us. WHERE SIN ABOUNDED “Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more.” (Romans 5:20)
  3. 3. “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.” (Romans 6:4) According to Romans 6:1-11, Christians die to sin through baptism. How is that possible? JESUS • He died to sin once and forever • He rose from the dead and will never die again • He lives for God THROUGH BAPTISM... • The old self dies (our sinful desires) and we are free from sin • The new self is raised from the dead (we no longer serve sin) • We live for God WHERE SIN ABOUNDED
  4. 4. If a believer dies to sin through baptism, could he sin again? • Yes, he could, but he is able to choose whether he wants to be ruled by sin or not. • The old man DESIRES to live for sin. • The new man DESIRES to live for God, although he still might fall into sin. • We cannot overcome sin by ourselves. Only by faith and trust in God’s promises we can overcome sin. • Let’s remember that God’s grace always abounds, even if we sin. WHEN SIN REIGNS “Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.” (Romans 6:12 NIV)
  5. 5. What does ‘not to be under law, but under grace’ involve? To be ‘under the law’ means to obey the law as a means to salvation. “The law shows the sin (Romans 3:20), the law enlarges the transgression because the sinful way of man (Romans 5:20). The Law cannot forgive sins nor can law give any power to defeat them. If a sinner who tries to be saved under the law, he will find only be tied stronger to his sin.” (SDA Bible Commentary, vol. 6, ed. 1980,on Romans 6:14) NOT UNDER THE LAW BUT UNDER GRACE “For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.” (Romans 6:14 NIV)
  6. 6. What does ‘not to be under law, but under grace’ involve? NOT UNDER THE LAW BUT UNDER GRACE “For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.” (Romans 6:14 NIV) To be ‘under grace’ means to seek God’s grace as a means to salvation. “A Christian admits that has transgressed the divine law, and he, that he deserves to be under its condemnation, and but he surrenders to God’s grace and mercy through faith. Then, by his sinful past is forgiven through God’s grace and he receives divine power to walk in a new life.” (SDA Bible Commentary, vol. 6, ed. 1980, on Romans 6:14)
  7. 7. If we are no longer under the law, why must we keep it? (Romans 6:15) “To be under grace doesn’t mean that a believer is free to disobey God’s moral law with total impunity; to say that is to distort the purpose of God’s plan. God, in his love, offered grace to the sinner because he violated the divine law; man is free from sin’s control only by God’s grace. Therefore, how could be right or reasonable to stand deliberately under the old slavery? Disobeying God’s law involves becoming slave to sin again, since disobeying the divine law is sin (1 John 3:4) and anyone who perseveres with sin is slave to sin (John 8:34). To keep sinning after accepting God’s grace – that forgives and transforms – is to deny the purpose of that grace. Anyone who refuses to be lead to obedience to God’s law by His grace is rejecting that grace; he is rejecting God’s freedom and salvation.” (SDA Bible Commentary, vol. 6, on Romans 6:15)
  8. 8. Are you a slave to sin or to obedience? (Romans 6:16) Slaves to sin Slaves to obedience How can we become slaves to obedience [“become slaves to righteousness” (Romans 6:18 NIV)]? The right doctrine or teaching helps us to become “slaves to righteousness.” Death Righteousness SIN OR OBEDIENCE? “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. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.” (Romans 6:17,18) “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? “
  9. 9. What happens when we are free from sin? 1. We are made slaves to God. 2. We have the fruit of holiness. 3. We have eternal life in Jesus Christ, our Lord. FREE FROM SIN 6:19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. 6:20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. 6:21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. 6:22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:19-23
