More Sinning + More Grace = “I should sin more!”
“The true preaching of the gospel of salvation by grace alone always leads to the possibility of this charge being brought against it.”
-Romans 6; Martyn Lloyd-Jones
You have either “died to sin” or are “dead in sin.”
Your salvation is a matter of “Death and Life.”
“What is this business of grace? Is it to allow us to continue in sin? No! It is to deliver us from the bondage and reign of sin, and to put us under the reign of grace.”
-Romans 6, Martyn Lloyd-Jones
In the weakness of your flesh, remember where you are.

Romans 5: 18-21
If I’m united with Christ in His death, I am also united with him in His life.
“We must for a moment forget about ourselves and our experiences and consider only what is true about the Lord Jesus Christ, and what happened to Him in this matter of relationship to sin.”
-Martin Lloyd Jones Romans 6
Philippians 2: 6-8
“The resurrection of Jesus Christ is an announcement, a proclamation to the whole universe that His Son has completed the work of atonement and redemption and of salvation.”
– Martin Lloyd Jones Romans 6
God doesn’t ask us to do anything until he tells us what He has already done for us.
The process of sanctification is hindered until we consider where we are in Christ.

Justification: a declared righteousness free from penalty
Glorification: the gift of a resurrection body to each soul secure in Christ upon His return.
Sanctification: the process of obedience to the Holy Spirit whereby we grow into Christ-likeness.
Romans 6:12-13a (DBT)
Galatians 5:17 (ESV)
“Be killin’ sin before it be killin’ you.”
Stop yawning at crocodiles
Hack space for whole-hearted devotion.
1 John 1:9
Summon your “eagle power.”
There is strength in numbers.
|Freed to Serve||03/25/2018||Notes
Humans are made for freedom.
Foolish freedom brings pain and wise freedom brings joy.
We are either “in Adam” and “under the Law” or “in Christ” and “under Grace”
We are freed from the penalty of sin because Christ died for us. Romans 5:8-9
We are freed from the power of sin because Christ lives for us. Romans 5:10
As long as we are “under the Law” sin will continue to have mastery over us.
We are no longer under the Law, but under Grace.
To be “under The Law” means “If you obey my commands, I will bless you.”
To be “under Grace” means “I have already blessed you. Will you obey me?”
This was hard for the Jews to understand. It had been in effect for 1400 years.
1. The Law is not required for salvation, and not even for rules for holy living. Acts 15:8-21
Acts 15:19-21 We should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God. Instead, we should write and tell them to abstain from eating food offered to idols, from sexual immorality, from eating the meat of strangled animals, and from consuming blood. For these laws of Moses have been preached in Jewish synagogues in every city on every Sabbath for many generations.
2. The Law is required to show our need of a Savior. Galatians 3:24; 1Timothy 1:8-10
1Timothy 1:8-10 We know that the law is good when used correctly. For the law was not intended for people who do what is right. It is for people who are lawless and rebellious, who are ungodly and sinful, who consider nothing sacred and defile what is holy, who kill their father or mother or commit other murders. The law is for people who are sexually immoral, or who practice homosexuality, or are slave traders, liars, promise breakers, or who do anything else that contradicts the wholesome teaching that comes from the glorious Good News entrusted to me by our blessed God.
3. The Law of Moses has been replaced by the “Law of Christ” – the New Covenant (1Corinthians 9:21; James 2:8-12)
9 of the 10 Commandments are now in the New Covenant.
We all give our allegiance (our “yes”) to something. No man can serve two masters.
The secret to resisting sin is not “resisting sin,” it is remembering God’s grace.
