Sermon Outline for Romans 6:23

  1. Introduction
    1. There are two possibilities facing everyone
      1. The Human
        1. The wages of sin is death
        2. The house on the sand
        3. The wide gate
        4. The broad way
        5. Serving “mammon”
      2. The Divine
        1. The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ
        2. The house on the rock
        3. The narrow gate
        4. The narrow way
        5. Serving God
    2. The two possibilities are completely different
      1. The human is the old life
      2. The divine is the new life
    3. The two positions are consistent
      1. Each has a consequence and result
      2. You start and arrive at a given destination
  2. Analysis
    1. The Master we serve

      2. Every individual in the world at this moment is either – or
      3. The vital question
        1. Not – “What am I doing?”
        2. But – “Who am I serving?”
        3. “For whom am I living?”
    2. The contrast between the two masters and conditions under which we serve
      1. Sin‘s wages or the ration due
        1. It is something earned
        2. It is something deserved
        3. It is something merited
        4. It is the law that decides wages
        5. “The soul that sinneth…it shall die” – Eze 18:4
      2. God‘s gift
        1. It is not earned
        2. It is not merited
        3. It is not a “just recompence”
        4. It is only the result of God’s grace
        5. It is totally free to us who are totally unworthy
    3. The differing results
      1. The steps of sin
        1. Disobedience – unrighteousness
        2. Uncleanness – iniquity
        3. Death
          1. Physical
          2. Spiritual
          3. Eternal – final
            1. Irreversible separation from God
            2. Forever outside the life of God
          4. The reality of – Rev 20
