Set Free final 1.001

This morning at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a message based on Romans 6:1-14.  This message was the first message in the “Set Free” series.   Below are a set of questions for personal reflection or group discussion based on the sermon.

Sermon Questions for Reflection or Discussion:

  1. Read Romans 6:1-14
  2. Paul anticipates a question in Romans 6:1 (in response to his teaching on the Gospel of Jesus Christ from Romans 1-5).  He seems to expect someone to think that the Gospel is dangerous . . . that it would lead people to living more sinful lives.  Have you ever thought this?  Have you ever heard a presentation of the Gospel that left you thinking, “that is really dangerous – it could encourage people to sin more?”
  3. In the big picture, what is Paul’s response to the question he asks in Romans 6:1?
  4. What are some of the things that we Paul says we need to know about our connection to Christ from Romans 6:1-10?  In the message, we talked about several ways to help remember these things (baptism, Scripture memory, etc.)  Is there any particular application you took from this section of the message?
  5. In 6:11, Paul moves from the head to the heart, and focuses on us “reckoning” or “considering to be true” the things he has just said in 6:1-10.  What would it look like for you to truly “consider” or believe these things are true in a particular sin struggle in your own life?
  6. From 6:12-14, Paul focuses on presenting our hands (or all our members of our body) to God to serve Him in righteousness.  Think of the members of your own body:  Mind, eyes, ears, hands, feet, wallet.  What does it look like for us to present ALL our members to Him?
  7. Anything in particular stand out to you about this message today?
