ROMANSThe Freedom from Sin


Romans the freedom from sin4 l.jpg

ROMANSThe Freedom from Sin

  • We are dead . . . To sin


Slide5 l.jpg

Romans 6:1-7 (NET Bible)

  • 1 What shall we say then? Are we to remain in sin so that grace may increase? 2 Absolutely not! How can we who died to sin still live in it? 3 Or do you not know that as many as were baptized into Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we have been buried with him through baptism into death, in order that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too may live a new life.


Slide6 l.jpg

Romans 6:1-7 (NET Bible)

  • 5 For if we have become united with him in the likeness of his death, we will certainly also be united in the likeness of his resurrection. 6 We know that our old man was crucified with him so that the body of sin would no longer dominate us, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. 7 (For someone who has died has been freed from sin.)

  • We are dead . . . To sin

  • We are alive . . . To God


Slide10 l.jpg

Romans 6:8-11 (NET Bible)

  • 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 We know that since Christ has been raised from the dead, he is never going to die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10 For the death he died, he died to sin once for all, but the life he lives, he lives to God. 11 So you too consider yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.


Romans the freedom from sin11 l.jpg

ROMANSThe Freedom from Sin

Sanctification is God’s progressively separating a believer from sin to Himself and transforming his total life experience toward holiness and purity.”

Sanctification refers to God’s work of transforming believers so that the legal declaration of innocence (justification) is progressively worked out in life through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 6:12-14 (NET Bible)

  • 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its desires, 13 and do not present your members to sin as instruments to be used for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who are alive from the dead and your members to God as instruments to be used for righteousness. 14 For sin will have no mastery over you, because you are not under law but under grace.

Romans the beauty of slavery l.jpg

ROMANSThe Beauty of Slavery


Romans the beauty of slavery22 l.jpg

ROMANSThe Beauty of Slavery

  • You are enslaved to the one you obey


Slide23 l.jpg

Romans 6:15-16 (NET Bible)

  • 15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Absolutely not! 16 Do you not know that if you present yourselves as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or obedience resulting in righteousness?

ROMANSThe Beauty of Slavery

  • You are enslaved to the one you obey

  • Since you obey God, you are enslaved to Him


Slide26 l.jpg

Romans 6:17-20 (NET Bible)

  • 17 But thanks be to God that though you were slaves to sin, you obeyed from the heart that pattern of teaching you were entrusted to, 18 and having been freed from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness.


Slide27 l.jpg

Romans 6:17-20 (NET Bible)

  • 19 (I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh.) For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification. 20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free with regard to righteousness.

ROMANSThe Beauty of Slavery

“There is no absolute independence for man; our nature requires us to serve some master.”

-J. Denney


Slide29 l.jpg

Matthew 6:24 (NET Bible)

  • 24 No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.

  • Slavery to God leads to holiness and life


Slide32 l.jpg

Romans 6:21-23 (NET Bible)

  • 21 So what benefit did you then reap from those things that you are now ashamed of? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now, freed from sin and enslaved to God, you have your benefit leading to sanctification, and the end is eternal life. 23 For the payoff of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Romans the beauty of slavery33 l.jpg

ROMANSThe Beauty of Slavery

“The freedom brought by grace does not provide carte blanche to continue in sin. On the contrary, grace places the believer under obligation to holiness and growth in righteousness.”

Romans the release from law l.jpg

ROMANSThe Release from Law


Romans the release from law38 l.jpg

ROMANSThe Release from Law

  • The Principle: Death dissolves a legal relationship


Slide39 l.jpg

Romans 7:1-3 (NET Bible)

  • 1 Or do you not know, brothers and sisters (for I am speaking to those who know the law), that the law is lord over a person as long as he lives? 2 For a married woman is bound by law to her husband as long as he lives, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of the marriage. 3 So then, if she is joined to another man while her husband is alive, she will be called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law, and if she is joined to another man, she is not an adulteress.

  • The Application: We are now joined to a person rather than a code


Slide42 l.jpg

Romans 7:4-6 (NET Bible)

  • 4 So, my brothers and sisters, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you could be joined to another, to the one who was raised from the dead, to bear fruit to God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the sinful desires, aroused by the law, were active in the members of our body to bear fruit for death. 6 But now we have been released from the law, because we have died to what controlled us, so that we may serve in the new life of the Spirit and not under the old written code.

1 Corinthians 7:19 (NET Bible)

  • 19 Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing. Instead, keeping God’s commandments is what counts.

1 Corinthians 9:21 (NET Bible)

  • 21 To those free from the law I became like one free from the law (though I am not free from God’s law but under the law of Christ) to gain those free from the law.

ROMANSThe Work of Holiness


Romans the work of holiness57 l.jpg

ROMANSThe Work of Holiness

  • The game of life is governed by good rules


Slide58 l.jpg

Romans 7:7-12 (NET Bible)

  • 7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Absolutely not! Certainly, I would not have known sin except through the law. For indeed I would not have known what it means to desire something belonging to someone else if the law had not said, “Do not covet.” 8 But sin, seizing the opportunity through the commandment, produced in me all kinds of wrong desires. For apart from the law, sin is dead.


Slide59 l.jpg

Romans 7:7-12 (NET Bible)

  • 9 And I was once alive apart from the law, but with the coming of the commandment sin became alive 10 and I died. So I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life brought death! 11 For sin, seizing the opportunity through the commandment, deceived me and through it I died. 12 So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous, and good.

Slide64 l.jpg

Romans 7:13-25 (NET Bible)

  • 13 Did that which is good, then, become death to me? Absolutely not! But sin, so that it would be shown to be sin, produced death in me through what is good, so that through the commandment sin would become utterly sinful. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual—but I am unspiritual, sold into slavery to sin. 15 For I don’t understand what I am doing. For I do not do what I want—instead, I do what I hate. 16 But if I do what I don’t want, I agree that the law is good.


Slide65 l.jpg

Romans 7:13-25 (NET Bible)

  • 17 But now it is no longer me doing it, but sin that lives in me. 18 For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh. For I want to do the good, but I cannot do it. 19 For I do not do the good I want, but I do the very evil I do not want! 20 Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer me doing it but sin that lives in me.


Slide66 l.jpg

Romans 7:13-25 (NET Bible)

  • 21 So, I find the law that when I want to do good, evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God in my inner being. 23 But I see a different law in my members waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that is in my members.


Slide67 l.jpg

Romans 7:13-25 (NET Bible)

  • 24 Wretched man that I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.

Slide76 l.jpg

Romans 8:1-4 (NET Bible)

  • 1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2 For the law of the life-giving Spirit in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death. 3 For God achieved what the law could not do because it was weakened through the flesh. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and concerning sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 so that the righteous requirement of the law may be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Romans 8:9-11 (NET Bible)

  • 9 You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, this person does not belong to him. 10 But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is your life because of right-eousness.


Slide84 l.jpg

Romans 8:9-11 (NET Bible)

  • 11 Moreover if the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive through his Spirit who lives in you.

John 7:37-39 (NET Bible)

  • 37 On the last day of the feast, the greatest day, Jesus stood up and shouted out, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me, and 38 let the one who believes in me drink. Just as the scripture says, ‘From within himwill flow rivers of living water.’” 39 (Now he said this about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were going to receive, for the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Romans 8:12-17 (NET Bible)

  • 12 So then, brothers and sisters, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh 13 (for if you live according to the flesh, you will die), but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body you will live. 14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God.


Slide94 l.jpg

Romans 8:12-17 (NET Bible)

  • 15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery leading again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit himself bears witness to our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 And if children, then heirs (namely, heirs of God and also fellow heirs with Christ)—if indeed we suffer with him so we may also be glorified with him.

Romans 8:18-25 (NET Bible)

  • 18 For I consider that our present sufferings cannot even be compared to the glory that will be revealed to us. 19 For the creation eagerly waits for the revelation of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility—not willingly but because of God who subjected it—in hope 21 that the creation itself will also be set free from the bondage of decay into the glorious freedom of God’s children.


Slide100 l.jpg

Romans 8:18-25 (NET Bible)

  • 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers together until now. 23 Not only this, but we ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we eagerly await our adoption, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope, because who hopes for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with endurance.

  • 26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness, for we do not know how we should pray, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with inexpressible groanings. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes on behalf of the saints according to God’s will.


Slide106 l.jpg

Romans 8:26-30 (NET Bible)

  • 28 And we know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose, 29 because those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; and those he called, he also justified; and those he justified, he also glorified.

Romans 8:35-39 (NET Bible)

  • 35Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will trouble, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written, “For your sake we encounter death all day long; we were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us!
