Wesley's Notes for Romans 6:1


6:1 The apostle here sets himself more fully to vindicate his doctrine from the consequence above suggested, #Rom 3:7|,8. He had then only in strong terms denied and renounced it: here he removes the very foundation thereof.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 6:1


Ro 6:1 Dying and Living with Christ SUMMARY OF ROMANS 6: Death by Sin. Burial with Christ. Rising to a New Life. Those Dead Not Under the Dominion of Sin. Hence, Consecrated to a New Life. Once the Servants of Sin, but After Baptism the Servants of. Jesus Christ. The Wages of Sin. The Gift of God. Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? In the last chapter the apostle has shown that the existence of sin called out the grace of God in forgiveness. Now the object is raised. If that is so, why not continue in sin so that God's grace would more abound?

Discussion for Romans 6

    My husband brought me to God Through Paul I grew up in church but never in love of it ,he took so much time trying to explain forgiveness and that I did not need to do the ten commandments and the guilt was gone that is when I started to love God ,see I could sin today and still be saved but why would I want to hurt my God who saved a person like me.

    He that committeth sin is of the devil. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested that He might destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8. Whosoever sinneth not is born of God. For His seed remaineth in Him and he cannot sin because he is born of God. Verse 9.
  • Laymen. William Wright
    According to Romans 6:23 it states clearly that sin will bring you death and this is obviously a permanent death in Hell in the burning furance. Of course, this is the act of Christ, if you do not confess, repent and seek forgiveness of your sins. But through His love, grace and mercy, he will forget all of your trepasses. My suggestion to those who are lost, find Him soon, before it's too late.

    It doesn't have anything to do with the nails or cross. However it does symbolize death and resurrection. More importantly baptism is just that. Being baptized a key part in steps to return to live with God again. Christ was baptized not to wash away sins but to fulfill all righteousness as stated in Mathew 3:15. In Mark it talks about being baptized of water and the holy ghost both are needed.
  • Mary
    Baptism is our outward expression of our inward changed life. When we accept Christ as our Savior, we have a changed life. Our old life to sin is dead and we have a new life in Christ

    Hi Barbara. You could try reading Colossians Chapter 2. This might be something like what you're thinking of. God bless
