A Sermon on Romans 6:3-4
Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. (ESV)
The implications of our union with Christ; union in His death; burial and resurrection; past objective facts; not exhortations; the glorious power of God; life in the new realm.
