Being Alive To God

 

Romans 6:12-23

 

What does it mean to be alive to God in Christ Jesus?

 

1. We have a new lifestyle.

 

  - We are free to live for God.

 

  - The believer must not allow sin to reign over his or her life.

 

2. We have a new priority.

 

  - Sin once was the dominant influence in our lives, but we now have a new priority: to live for Christ.

 

3. We have a new future.

 

  - In our former lives, as slaves to sin, our future was mapped out: death.

 

  - We have been freed by Christ from our bondage to sin, and we are assured of eternal life with God.

 

  - The best is yet to come.
