Consider Yourself Alive to God

Media, Romans, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Romans
We continue our study of the most influential, life-changing, worldview-shaping letter ever written—Romans. It is a timeless, divinely-inspired masterpiece on the joy-filled-life-as-it-should-be freedom found in Jesus. Today, in Romans 6:11-14, Apostle Paul exhorts us to “consider ourselves dead to sin and alive to God” (6:11). So, how are Jesus’ people to relate to sin on the other side of justification? Does it matter? Is it worth it?

How Does OT Circumcision Relate to NT Baptism

Media, Romans, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Romans

We continue our study of the most influential, life-changing, worldview-shaping letter ever written—Romans. It is a timeless, divinely-inspired masterpiece on the joy-filled-life-as-it-should-be freedom found in Jesus. Today, we are back in 4:9-12, especially v.11, which for the last 400 years has been used by advocates of infant baptism to build their case. So, let’s examine this claim. But, first, let’s consider why this is relevant for us along with the very real danger, and unfortunate prevalence of, theological minimalism in our day.
