Summarize what you read in one paragraph:
Romans 6 talks about becoming dead to sin and alive in Christ. That we need to put as much energy into living in Christ as we did to live in sin before we died to it. When we were baptized, we died to sin and were resurrected in Christ as a new being. So we are free of the slavery of sin. It is time to serve our new master Christ Jesus.
Romans 7 talks about our sinful nature, God’s Law, and how Christ fulfilled God’s law. How God’s law is still of value because it teaches us about God’s holiness, about sin, and about God’s plan. How we needed to be set free from the slavery of our sinful nature and in that freedom practice life through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, which is talked about in Romans 8.
Romans 8 talks about how we live in the Holy Spirit by focusing on the things of the Spirit. This is possible because the Holy Spirit lives in all believers. So we no longer follow what the flesh or (sin) wants, but act as and live as adopted Heirs of God.
