Continuing on with the NECESSITY OF SANCTIFICATION while borrowing from the outline found in Matthew Henry's Commentary:
1. Rom 6:2 We are dead to sin, to sin is a contradiction of our profession.
2. Rom 6:3 Baptized into his death.
We have an obligation to comply with the design of His Death.
So our conformity to the death of Christ obliges us to die to sin. Phil 3:10 - fellowship of his sufferings.
Rom 6:4 Planted together in the likeness of his death. Planting - like a crop in order to life and fruitfulness.
Rom 6:6 Old man crucified with him. Sin doesn’t go easy or fast.
Christ for us has a work of Christ in us killing sin.
Rom 6:8 We are dead with Christ.
Colossians 1:10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
Colossians 2:12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
