From Mark Roberts new book on Romans, comments on Romans 6
Salvation isn’t something you stick in your pocket never to need or think about until the Final Judgment comes. It changes everything about you now—how you live, how you see sin, the choices you make, and what you want to do. The Christian is changed because God has operated on him through baptism to kill the old man of sin. The Christian is a new creature in Christ. Being a Christian means you’ll live differently, think differently, and act differently—because you are different. You’re changed. Thus, for Paul, the idea of a Christian continuing in sin is absurd.
