Romans 5: 6-11
2. When we do not obey God’s law we sin (1 John 3:4).

I.THE BLOOD OF CHRIST TAKES OUR SINS AWAY.
- A. Romans 5:6-11. 6 For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11 And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
- B. Hebrews 9:22;. 22 And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission. 10:4, For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins.
- C. Colossians 1:14; 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
- D. Revelation 1:5. 5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood,
II.THE BLOOD OF CHRIST TAKES AWAY OUR SINS WHEN WE ARE BAPTIZED.
- Romans 6:4 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
- John 19:34. 34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.
- Revelation 1:5; 5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood,
- Acts 2:38; 38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
III. WHEN THE BLOOD OF CHRIST TAKES AWAY OUR SINS WE ARE ADDED TO THE CHURCH OF CHRIST.
Acts 2:47. 46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved. Ephesians 1:22, 23; 4:4; 5:23. 2 Timothy 2:10; Galatians 3:27.
