Dead to Sin, Alive to Christ

Romans 6:5 "For if we have been united with Him, in a death like His, we shall certainly be united with Him in a resurrection like His."
Romans 6:7 "For one who has died has been set free from sin. (8) Now, if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him."

This whole chapter is saying the same thing over and over again so that we won't miss the point!
"Dead to Sin, Alive to God!"
~What is "Dead to Sin?" Does that mean that we won't sin? No. we still do sin (I still do it quite often, sadly), but were not slaves to it. Before any of us were saved, we were all slaves to sin, we couldn't "not sin."
~What is "Alive to Christ?" Romans 6:22 "But now that you have been set free from sin, and have become slaves to Christ, the fruit you get leads to Sanctification and it's end, eternal life!" Amazing! Now we are "slaves to righteousness!"
The "slaves" to righteousness is kind of funny, because are slaves to Christ, but if we are really, truely saved, we want to do Christ's will!

All for the glory of God!
