Day 58/260: Read Romans 6
Have you obeyed the gospel of Christ? Those who have not obeyed will find themselves in a sorry state when the judgment comes (2 Thessalonians 1:6-8). If you don’t understand the question, stay with me. It’s eternally important.
The gospel (“good news”) is this: Christ died, was buried, and was raised again (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). How are we supposed to obey that? Romans 6 shows us!
Read Romans 6:3-4 again: “Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”
In summary, the gospel is that Christ died, was buried, and was raised again. To obey the gospel, we must die to sin, be buried in the waters of baptism, and then be raised in the newness of life.
The question must be asked again: have you obeyed the gospel of Christ? Be honest in your evaluation of the Scriptures and how you have responded to God’s Word. The answer is of eternal importance.
