Romans 6

Romans 6

Erk Russell coached the George Southern football team from 1981-1989 and was known for his unconventional method of teaching his players. Once he asked some backwoods country farmers to bring a six-foot rattlesnake into one of their meetings and throw it on a table. As they did so, the players all scrambled for the door, and Russell said: “You should fear drugs as much as you fear that rattlesnake because they will both kill you.”

Paul says that the same thing in the book of Romans. After telling us that Jesus died for our sins in chapter five, he reminds us in chapter six that sin can kill us. Therefore, we should avoid it and head for the door. In his own words, Paul writes in verses one to two: “Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it?”

Are you fleeing from sin this morning? The Bible says that you need to. Are you avoiding it like a rattlesnake? A better question might be: why should you avoid it? If Jesus died for your sin, what is the danger of it? Come join us this Sunday morning as we wrestle with that question. Come join us as we study Romans six and learn how to avoid our sin and scramble for the door. We meet at 9:30 at 46024 Riverside Drive in Chilliwack. See you there! – Jeremy Cagle
