BSF Study Questions Romans Lesson 10, Day 5: Romans 6:9-11

Summary of passage:  We are no longer slaves to sin since Christ’s death has freed us from sin.  Since Christ rose from the dead, he lives!  As do we.


12)  Part personal Question.  My answer:  Jesus was raised from the dead.  He cannot die again since he defeated death through this act.  He died to sin and its power forever.  He lives now to God.  Sin now no longer has power over us either and we are now alive to God in Christ (righteous and sanctified and justified).

13)  Personal Question.  My answer:  In my home, community, work, and church, my life is the same:  sin’s power is broken.  I live for God.  He rules.  The end.

Conclusions:  There is nothing new here and BSF is obviously out of questions to ask since we just regurgitated yesterday’s lesson.  Now I see how answering only 6 questions has come about:  because of the repetitive nature of these questions!

End Notes: [Pulled from YESTERDAY]

Jesus’s death broke our slavery to sin and death since now we have eternal life.

Our new life is a life we live to God–we live the life God wants not the life we want. Ezekiel predicted this in Ezekiel 36:26:  “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”

We now want to do God’s will and with practice and perseverance we will overcome!

We are dead to sin but alive in Jesus.

Summation of Romans 6:1-11:  Spirit baptism brings the regenerated person into a redemptive relationship through his participation in and identification with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ and the subsequent infusion of the merit of that death and resurrection into the life of the believer, by which he may live as one dead to sin but alive to God.

Fun Fact:  The first occurrence in Romans of “in Christ”, which is often found in Paul’s writings.  True believers are “in Christ” because they have died with Christ and have been raised to new life in union with him.

  1. I love your commentaries, but feel very defensive when you criticise the lesson.  BSF is not perfect, but it is a wonderful ministry.  You are very smart and faithful to work with us through these lessons.  I just wish you wouldn’t throw them under the bus when you don’t like their questions.  Example: the question about “Tempted to sin because you know GOD will forgive you.”  You dismissed this question… but for me, this put me under great conviction.  I have a distinct moment when I CHOSE to sin and reap the consequences.  Now I have asked forgiveness and am free.  But you dismissing the question, made me feel like an unworthy idiot.   I am actually not condemning you. I promise.  I am encouraging you that your words and thoughts are powerful and they matter to a broad audience. Thank you for all you do.  I especially LOVE your END CONCLUSIONS!  Respectfully… Tammy SchusterSchuster Construction and Design682.478.6777 Steve: 817.905.2574  


    1. I agree with Tammy’s comment. I appreciate your commentaries but I don’t like how negative you’ve seemed tot then the past few studies. And I felt the same way about the purposely dinning question. We all choose sin knowing that we’re forgiven. I too felt like you dismissed that question. I was also discouraged by your lack of depth and introspection for question 13. Your answers seem so quip. I’m trying to really dig in and think about how God wants to change me in all those categories. I do appreciate the work that you do but lately it’s been difficult to read.


      1. I just didn’t get a lot out of the questions or the lesson and I’m not going to make up some long-winded answer to make it seem so nor am I going to lie about it. I post my answers and what I get out of it and sometimes that is very little. In the next few weeks, God does show up in my lessons and you’re gonna love it!!
