Preparing for Worship: March 1, 2020

February 27, 2020

Text: Romans 6:3–5
Title: "Our Death with Jesus"

This Lord's Day we will begin looking at Paul's more detailed answer to a common objection raised against the good news of God's grace. The accusation is that the apostle's understanding of grace leads to sinful living. Worse still, the accusation had been leveled that Paul encouraged sinful living so as to magnify the grace of God.

Paul's short answer was that such a suggestion is unthinkable. But Paul's more detailed answer shows that it is more than unthinkable: it is impossible. A death has occurred in the life of the Christian, a death in the likeness of Christ's own death, that has forever changed the Christian's relationship to sin. That death guarantees a new life.

Morning and evening, this Lord's Day, we will consider these tremendous truths.
