United to Christ - Part 2

Sun, Sep 09, 2018
We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. - Romans 6:9–11 (ESV) We doubt if anybody can really change. This doubt is driven not by what we know about others but what we know about ourselves. It seems as much as we try, resolve, plan, and seek help, change is an elusive character. What Christianity offers however is not resolve or self-control leading to change, but a change that is occasioned outside of us and without us. In fact, in one way you could say it's change that is imposed on us. This week we will examine how what Christ has done for us goes beyond just our right standing with God but all the way to our holiness before Him. We are both justified and sanctified because we are united with Christ. How does this union fundamentally change our connection to sin? When that change happens what does it mean? Take some time to read through Romans 6:1-14, and come ready to rest in what Christ has done.
