United With Christ
We have a choice if we obey sin or righteousness. Following Law and relying upon it will leave us slaves to the sin that law points out (1 Cor 15:56; Rom 6:14). We, in Christ, however have been freed from sin’s dominion because we have been united with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. One way we are able to remember our relationship to God in Christ, is the ceremony He gave us that was our union with Christ, our baptism into Him (Rom 6:1-7). It helps us remember and live out our freedom from sin’s dominion, which is nurtured under law (Rom 6:16-22).
