As we come to Romans 6, Paul will say repeatedly in a variety of ways that in Christ we died to sin. Paul stresses this because it is crucial to the process of our sanctification. Yet it's difficult to understand because we don’t feel very dead to sin! In fact, most of us rarely feel kind of faint! God’s salvation plan includes both delivering us from the penalty of sin and delivering us from the practice of sin. Deliverance from the penalty of sin we call justification. Deliverance from the practice of sin we call sanctification.

Since chapter one of Romans we have been focused on justification. When a sinner trusts in the blood of Jesus to pay the penalty of their sins, God declares that sinner righteous. But like adoption, justification is not the end of God's saving us; it's just the beginning. Justification opens the way to a whole new life.
