Sermon Outline

FREEDOM IN SLAVERY

Romans 6:15-23

Introduction: What many in our culture see as “freedom” is really only another form of slavery. The apostle Paul continues to speak to the thought that because we are under grace, we can continue to sin and be forgiven.

“In Christ”

  • Reckon: yourself dead to sin and alive to God
  • Resist: do not let sin reign in your body
  • Render: offer yourself to God
  • I.THE PRINCPLE OF SLAVERY
  • A.Obedience is Trademark of Slavery (v. 16)
  • B.We Are Slaves To Either Sin Or To Righteousness
  • 1.Our only choice is who will we be slaves too
  • 2.We cannot serve two masters
  • II.SLAVES TO SIN
  • A.In Bondage to Impurity and Wickedness
  • B.Leads to Shame (v. 21)
  • C.Results in Death (vv. 16, 23)
  • III.SLAVES TO RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • A.Set Freed From Slavery to Sin (vv. 17-18)
  • B.Leads to Righteousness and Holiness (vv. 19, 20)
  • C.Results in Eternal Life (v. 23)

Conclusion: The question is, “Can we keep on sinning because we are under grace?” The answer is: “NO”. The reason: Don’t you know…”Who we are in Christ?”, that you are dead to sin and alive to God;” and “that you are free from sin and alive to righteousness. “
