Scripture: Romans 5:12–5:17

Who Am I? I am in Christ
Romans 5:12–17
February 28, 2016

Introduction:

I. Our representative union in Christ. Romans 5:12–17; 1 Corinthians 15:22

II. This union began before time and continues into eternity. Ephesians 1:4, 11–12; Revelation 14:13; 1 Thessalonians 4:16

III. Union in Christ means blessing for us. Deuteronomy 28:1–2; Ephesians 1:3; 1 Corinthians 1:30

IV. This is a living union. Colossians 2:6–7; John 15:5; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 4:13

V. This is a corporate union. Romans 12:5; 1 Corinthians 12:12–13

Questions for reflection:

  • How does knowing that you were in Christ from the foundation of the world and into eternity effect the way you think about yourself?
  • What does it mean for you to carry out your daily tasks and actions “in Christ?”
  • Can you name some times in your life when you have sensed an especially close personal fellowship with Christ? What have those times been like?
  • What is one take-away from this sermon for you?
