Teaching: "Don't Look Back"
Text: Romans 6:1-7


Returning to a life of sin after becoming a Christian is like winning the lottery but choosing to continue to live in poverty. Pastor Nate Heitzig poses this question: Can one be a Christian and continually pursue a sinful lifestyle? In examining Romans 6:1-7, we find the biblical answer: No. Because of what God has done for the Christian, the Christian's rightful response to God should be to pursue a transformed lifestyle.

  1. Get Up (vv. 1-2)
  2. Go Forward (vv. 3-5)
  3. Never Go Back (vv. 6-7)

Connect Up: The Christian life can be summarized in three overarching acts of God:Throughout Romans, Paul shows how Christ procured our salvation (see Romans 8:27-32). Jesus calls us (see John 15:16), confirms us (see John 12:44-47), and conforms us (see John 13:15). Discuss the role of the Spirit in all areas: calling, confirming, and conforming. How are both Jesus and the Spirit involved in getting Christians up, moving forward, and never looking back?
