Propositional statement

Romans 6:12–23 NIV
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no means! Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance. You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness. I am using an example from everyday life because of your human limitations. Just as you used to offer yourselves as slaves to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer yourselves as slaves to righteousness leading to holiness. When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness. What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death! But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

What is the Therefore There For?

Couple weeks ago “You must be born again

Romans 6:5–6 NIV
For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—
Romans 6:
2 Corinthians 5:16 NIV
So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.

Baptism

Baptizmo - describe a change - in historical writings - pickle

Romans 6:3–4 NIV
Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
Romans 6:3-4

Yes to Jesus means No to EVERYTHING ELSE

He is the King of King

Marriage vow

(First Person), will you have this woman/man as your lawful wedded partner, to live together in the estate of matrimony? Will you love him/her, honor him/her, comfort him/her, and keep him/her in sickness and in health; forsaking all others, be true to him/her as long as you both shall live?
As great as your spouse may be - God uses the marriage as a picture of our relationship with him.
Ephesians 5:32 NIV
This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.
Eph

Intent is to release the stress and trust God
There is never a point where it says that we are not part of the process of being made into His image.

Who Do You Belong To

Do not let sin reign (sin = wrong doing - by accident or deliberate)
Introduce the concept of master
obey it’s evil desires
Do not let - assumes a default state
GMM - mouth breathers - I am a mouth breather by default - in the same way - our default is to let sin reign - we desire a thing we fill the desire.
Do not offer to sin - deliberate - intentional - Do not offer any part
Implies even a little bit
anger, when we know we should not say a thing, but deliberately open our mouths. I probably shouldn’t say this but...
Do offer to God
Death to life - to have victory over sin
offer EVERY part
Who is the master?
Romans 6:14 NIV
For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.
Romans 6:
It does not rule.. there is always a way out.
The law was a series of dos and dont’s that no and even the keeping of those laws was not sufficient
Paul’s detail in following the law was flawless, but in his zeal - killed Christians
Under grace - free from the punishment.

You Choose who you offer to

Default sin or default to chase obedience—
Romans 6:15–22 NIV
What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no means! Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance. You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness. I am using an example from everyday life because of your human limitations. Just as you used to offer yourselves as slaves to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer yourselves as slaves to righteousness leading to holiness. When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness. What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death! But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.
