The Benefits of Baptism (Romans 6:1-11)

Romans 6:1-11

I. Death (6:1-3)

    A. Answering the error of a misapplication of Romans 5:20b
    B. Jesus died to sin (6:10), when we are baptized into Christ (and into His death) we also die to sin through Him—and we die to ourselves! (cf. Romans 8:13; Galatians 2:20; Luke 14:33; Romans 12:1)

II. Burial (6:3-4)

    A. This points to the mode of baptism – “buried”
    B. An act of submission

III. Resurrection (6:4)

    A. Just as Jesus died, we die – just as Jesus was buried, we are buried – just as Jesus was raised, we are raised
    B. The purpose: “to walk in newness of life” because we are dead to sin, freed from sin, made a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17)

IV. What it means for the Christian (6:5-11)

    A. We are united with Him in His death and resurrection (6:5)
    B. We are freed from sin (6:6-7)
    C. We live with Him to God (6:8-11)
