How to Really Live

Passage: Romans 6:11-13
Big Idea: 1. Picture yourself in Christ. 2. Present yourself to God.
Romans 6:11-13 (ESV)
11 So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. 13 Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness.
Everybody has a profile. And our profile is under construction. It's not finished yet.
Our profile is not necessarily what we post on social media, or what we put on our resume. It's who we really are. Or perhaps more to the point, it's who we are truly becoming.
In this sermon series, we're going to take a closer look at a number of Christ-like characteristics worth striving for and being known for.
If, by the grace and power of God, we could somehow pour a little more of these traits into our profile, we would be better people, and the world would be a better place.
