Whoever believes in Christ is justified or declared righteous by God.
Romans 3:21-5:21 present the fact that Christ died for us.
He died for us and He was raised from the dead for us.
He died because of our sins and lawless deeds and transgressions. These are in the plural in Romans 3, 4, and 5.
Christ’s death on the cross cleared us not only of our own sins, but also of our condemnation in Adam.
And chapter 5 brings us this joyful news that our salvation is eternally secure.
Romans 1:18 - 5:21 has statements of fact.
No commands at all - just facts.
Sin (singular) = the authority, power and principle behind man’s rebellion against God. Sin as a master.
Romans 6 teaches us that the death of Christ not only dealt with our sins; it also dealt with us, the sinners.
Rom 3-5 : Christ died for us, for our sins.
Romans 6: We died with Christ to sin.
The five parts to our salvation.
1. Christ’s propitiatory work toward God for us through His blood: bearing the guilt and condemnation of our sins.
2. Christ’s identification with us as connected with Adam: “our old man” being crucified with Christ.
3. The Holy Spirit’s whole work in us, beginning with regeneration.
4. Christ’s present work in Heaven: as our Great High Priest, and as our Advocate with the Father.
5. Christ’s second coming to redeem our bodies, and receive us to Himself in glory: The Rapture.
