Romans 6: Dead to Sin, Alive to God

Published

on

Shall we continue in sin? Paul asked this question because some people in the church of Rome still did not understand what justification by faith really meant.

They believed that if they had faith in the Lord Jesus, they could do what ever they wanted, for God would be merciful and gracious to them. Ith was as if granted them the right to live in sin.

They probably misinterpreted Paul’s words (5.20), so while some opted for religious legalism, others gave themselves up to debauchery. In this way, those who remained in sin, despite having knowledge of the Truth, could not be justified by faith.

So, although Paul was considered an apostate and traitor and suffered all sorts of persecution, slander, and injury, he did not cease to speak of the Gospel.

The greatest desire of those who serve God is the everyone is saved.

This desire is reflected in their arduous work of evangelization to reach the lost and also in their constant prayers. It is impossible to be a partaker of the Kingdom of God and His gifts and, at the same time, be oblivious to the suffering and spiritual blindness of the vast majority of people in this world.

Early in the morning. The Jordan was the only obstacle separating the people from the promise. Facing it head-on was the only was to reach the other side. But there were no bridges or boats, much less any possibility of going around the river.

But faith game the people readiness and the ability to fulfil God’s command. Many people want to overcome, but few take on what needs to be done with faith, courage and readiness.

We need to understand that, before we take possession of a miracle, tense and difficult moments will arise that require decision, trust and steadfastness.
