Mastered By Grace

Romans 6:1-14

Sin is a huge problem. We willfully clench our fists declaring, “I will do what I want, when I want, how I want; and no one, not even God, can tell me what I will and will not do.” The essence of sin is all about who is going to be in charge, who is going to be the master of our days. Undue self-orientation plagues every component of our existence. It is pervasive throughout the world. Nations and governments, social and economic systems, businesses, educational institutions, and even churches are afflicted with an overwhelming self-interest that permeates everything.

Thank you God who provides the solution in Christ Jesus. Just as Christ died and was raised from the dead, we who believe and trust in him have been baptized into his death, so that we, too, may live a brand-new life to the glory of God (see Rom. 6:4).
