Sermon – September 26, 2021
Many want to have their cake and eat it, too. Christians want to both have assurance of salvation, to avoid hell, but also to live out their sinful lives as they see fit. They take comfort in the idea that Christ forgives their sin. But here in Romans, Paul argues that such ideas are foolish and ignorant. Christians are not free to live lives bound to sin and death; but rather, having been freed from sin, we are to be bound to Christ, to live faithfully before him. Let us read from Romans 6 today, and see how we ought to live as saints, under grace.
1. Saints live as fervent servants
2. Saints live under faithful standards
3. Saints live for fruitful sanctification
