Who am I ?

I am sanctified, holy, alive in Jesus dependent on Jesus and his life, part of the body of Christ, his church.

I

If I am alive with Christ and dead to sin why do I still fight sin?

11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. 13 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. 14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.

Jesus death and sin

What the cross did not do

1. Eliminated sin

Sin is still powerful and the guilt is still there.

2. Get rid of the law (right and wrong are still in affect)

3. Get rid of sin or the guilt in me

What the cross did

1. Set me free from the power of sin

2. Paid the penalty for sin

3. It gives us the power to overcome sin and the power to live in holiness

4. It identifies me with Christ in his death and resurrection through baptism

The Power of Baptism

(NIV)

16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.

16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved,

but whoever does not believe will be condemned

(NIV) What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?

6 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 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.

3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

4 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.

5 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. 6 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—7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.

1. We died to sin. It has no power over us

1. We died to sin. It has no power over us

1. We died to sin. It has no power over us

1. We die to sin

2. We are resurrected with Christ receiving his life

3. The cross destroyed the old sinful nature we inherited from Adam

4. It gave us the power to be Abrahams offspring that lives by faith

(NIV)

16 Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the law but also to those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all. 17 As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.

The power of baptism dying to sin and burying the sinful nature in me

Through baptism I accept the new birth and become the offspring of Abraham living a life of faith
