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.
