Sermon Notes 

“Get busy living, or get busy dying” (Andy Dufruesne)

Psalm 90:12

“Be killing sin, or sin will be killing you.” (John Owen)

 1. New Life means Christ 

Romans 6:3-10

“As often as we fall away, we ought to recall the memory of our baptism and fortify our minds with it, that we may always be sure and confident of the forgiveness of sins.” (Calvin, Institutes 4, xv, 3)

“I was in the same waters where my dad’s body had been thrown, and at either side of me were the two men that in their youth had killed dad. All I knew was that I really loved these two guys.” (Steve Saint, “Beyond the Gates of Splendor”)

 Galatians 3:27

John 11:25-26

“If Jesus rose from the dead, then you have to accept all that he said; if he didn’t rise from the dead, then why worry about any of what he said? The issue on which everything hangs is not whether or not you like his teaching but whether or not he rose from the dead.” (Tim Keller, Reason for God)

 “For me the most radical demand of Christian faith lies in summoning the courage to say yes to the present risenness of Jesus Christ.” (Brennan Manning, Abba’s Child)

 2. New Life means Christ. 

Romans 6:11

“Eskimo: ‘If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?’  Priest: ‘No, not if you did not know.’ Eskimo: ‘Then why did you tell me?’” (Annie Dillard)

“One leak will sink a ship: and one sin will destroy a sinner.” (John Bunyan)

Psalm 19:13-17

 “Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth.” (John Wesley)

1 John 1:8-10

 “God is more ready to forgive than I am ready to offend.” (Charles Spurgeon, Sermon 1318)

 3. New Life Means to Christ  

Romans 6:12-13

 “If he gives you the grace to make you believe, he will give you the grace to live a holy life afterward.” (Charles Spurgeon, “Justification by Grace”)

 “Loving a holy God is beyond our moral power. The only kind of God we can love by our sinful nature is an unholy god, an idol made by our own hands. Unless we are born of the Spirit of God, unless God sheds His holy love in our hearts, unless he stoops in His grace to change our hearts, we will not love Him… To love a holy God requires grace, grace strong enough to pierce our hardened hearts and awaken our moribund souls.” (R.C. Sproul, The Holiness of God)

 “’Please,’ she said, ‘you’re so beautiful. You may eat me if you like. I’d sooner be eaten by you than fed by anyone else.’” (C.S. Lewis, The Horse and His Boy)

 James 4:6-8

Mark 14:36

 “Till sin be bitter, Christ will not be sweet.” (Thomas Watson)

 “Amazing Love, Oh what sacrifice The Son of God, given for me. My debt He pays and my death he dies That I might live And now this love of Christ Shall flow like rivers Come wash your guilt away, Live again!” (Amazing Love, Graham Kendrick © 1989)
