Reading Romans 6:1-4 to a New Life

Bobby Kurnia Putrawan, Alisaid Prawiro Negoro, Daryanto Daryanto


In Christ Jesus God, salvation is certain. Safety is not hopefully or hopefully or God willing. This certainty will be owned by everyone who has lived a new life, because he died for sin. Sin is the main obstacle to God’s salvation, because the wages of sin is death. But salvation is God’s free gift, not because of the kindness of those who receive it to God. Baptism was used by Paul to explain the death of sin and life for God. Believers are bsptized into Christ, are baptized in His death, which means believers are drowned in Christ, into the death of Him. And by the resurrection of Christ, those who die in Christ will also experience a resurrection with Christ. From this resureection with Christ, this is the faithful person who has a new life and starts walking in that new life. And it is in this new life that believers have a quality life knowing God who is new and full of wisdom. And a new life here is a very different life from a long life, where a long life tands to sin, but a life that tends to be old is a wise life.
