Romans 6:1-14 – Baptism and New Life in Christ
SummaryThrough baptism the Christian has died with Christ and goes on from death to life in obedience to Christ.
AnalysisWithin the context of speaking about the life of the believer, Paul calls forth the imagery of baptism. He does not write on baptism as a topic in itself but as an illustration of how the Christian life is to be lived. That involves a dying to conventional living and its standards and living as a person dedicated fully to God and God's will by being joined to Christ.
