UNSTUCK: finding security & hope in Jesus’ death & resurrection Part 2
How is your sense of SECURITY and what is it attached to?

FINANCIAL security
HEALTH security
“SOCIAL” security
COMFORT security
Your most powerful potential for real security is found in your vertical relationship with God, not the horizontal stuff we look to.
Jesus’ DEATH offers me SECURITY.
Jesus’ RESURRECTION offers me HOPE.
Can you identify one personal struggle you’d love to overcome?

How do we “die with Jesus”?
Romans 6:5-7
So why does our former master (sin) still have such a strong hold on so many of us???

Because our POSITION IN CHRIST has not yet become our EXPERIENCE IN LIFE.
How can I break free from the GRIP of sin?

1.THINK OF YOURSELF as the NEW SELF, not the OLD SELF.
2. ACTIVELY RESIST sins that attract you.
If Romans 6 is true, why don’t I experience MORE VICTORY?

The unfortunate reality of Romans 7…
If we don’t GIVE UP, we CAN OVERCOME!
Where has God ALREADY given you victory?
2 ways people overcome:

1. The struggle GOES AWAY.

2. I BECOME STRONGER than the desire.
You’re not a “sinner” anymore, because of Jesus, you’re a “saint”.
Next steps:

…believe God when He says sin is no longer my master.
…bring my struggle to God with new resolve to fight it by the power of the resurrection.

…memorize one or more verses from Romans 6:1-14
as spiritual ammunition for the battle.
…share my struggle with a trusted friend or find a counselor for support in the fight.
…share with someone this week one victory over sin I’ve experienced by God’s power.
