Choose Wisely

The theme of Romans is the theme of salvation.

It’s not just being forgiven, it’s being given eternal life.

There was an old bumper sticker that said, “Christians aren’t perfect, JUST forgiven.” That is not true… We are perfect in Christ and we aren’t just forgiven, we are free to live righteously.

Here in Romans chapter 6 you could say the apostle Paul is taking issue with that bumper sticker and that way of thinking as it sells us short of what Jesus Christ accomplished for us in His death and resurrection.

Paul used baptism to teach us about our relationship with Jesus. We were baptized into His death and raised to new life by His resurrection.

Jesus did provide us with forgiveness when He died in our place. He also provides us victory by His resurrection!
