Study Guide for January 12, 2020
Connected to Christ
Romans 6: 1-11
St. Paul writes to the Christians in Rome about being connected to Christ. Paul makes it clear that in baptism God connects us with our Savior, Jesus Christ, both in His death and in His resurrection. (Romans 6:4)
1. To say that baptism "connects us to Christ" is to say that prior to our baptism, we were disconnected from Christ. Paul even describes our condition prior to Christ as being "dead in our trespasses" and "children of wrath." (Ephesians 2:5, 2:3) We are under the wrath of God because of our sin.
Fortunately, God is at work in baptism to connect us to Christ. (Romans 6: 3-4) In baptism, just as God figuratively buries us with Christ, so He also raises us with Christ to new life. Connected to Christ we share in His Good Friday and in His empty tomb.
2. Notice this "newness of life" is something we are walking in right now. Dead to sin, we now walk in His new life. This new life is a life in which we no longer live for ourselves, but for Christ, who reconciled us to God once again. We no longer live to gratify our sinful desires, but rather live to please our gracious God. At the same time, we know that we will not be free from sin this side of heaven. We are still going to sin, even as we walk in this newness of life. The difference is that we don't live to sin.
3. This new life doesn't end when life here on this earth ends. Just as Christ was raised from the dead, so will we be raised from the dead! So will all who are connected to Christ and His resurrection through baptism. This is the sure and certain hope we have as the baptized children of God. Death is not the end. Death is but a doorway, a gateway into an eternal life in the presence of God with all who have gone before us and all who will come after us. Our bodies will be raised, just as His body was raised - glorious, "incorruptible, imperishable, and immortal." (I Cor. 15)
