Today's Full Sermon Passage

Romans 6:1-14
Why shouldn't I keep sinning so God's grace can increase?
Reason 1: You have died to sin
"For believers, sin is no longer their status, their state, or their master… You cannot live in Sin-land when the government posts your obituary in its local newspaper. Why would you want to remain there anyway when you recently received a letter notifying you that you had just inherited Grace-land.” (Michael Bird)
What “died to sin” does not mean:
1. It does not mean we no longer want to sin or that we're no longer tempted to sin
2. It does not merely mean we shouldn’t sin
3. It does not mean that we are slowly "doing better" as it relates to sin
“So having ‘died to sin’ does not mean that sin is no longer within you, or that it has no more power and influence within you. It does. But sin no longer can dictate to you. Though you may obey it and though (the Bible predicts) you will obey it, the fact remains that you no longer have to obey it. You have died to it; it can be dead to you.” (Tim Keller)
Reason 2: You were baptized into the death of Christ
Reason 3: You have been resurrected with Christ and have new life in Him
Exhortation: Do not let sin reign
3 Aspects (Phases) Of Our Salvation:
1. Justification
2. Sanctification
3. Glorification
“On the one hand, we are going to find that God commands His people to hold fast (Heb. 4:14), to endure (Mark 13:13), to fight (1 Tim. 6:12), to strive (Luke 13:24), to press on (Phil. 3:12), to not grow weary (Gal. 6:9), to be faithful unto death (Rev. 2:10), and to use every means of grace God provides to endure to the end and be saved (2 Cor. 9:8). “On the other hand, we are going to find that God is not standing aloof from this struggle, watching for its outcome. Rather, He is working in and through the struggle (1 Cor. 15:10; Phil. 2:13; Col. 1:29) to see to it that we triumph over sin (Rom. 6:14) and Satan (1 John 4:4; 5:18), and that nothing separates us from the love of Christ (Rom. 8:35–37).” (John Piper)
