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

  • Jim
    Continuing with the theme of our old nature being crucified with Christ... when we believe this and count on it suddenly we step out of the picture.We are believing in what He did and we can take no pride in it.Our old nature is then diminished at least temporarily and we can experience periods of victory in Christ!Yes we should yield our members to Him but this is how it is done.He gets the glory
  • Jim
    Paul could honestly say in Galatians that he was crucified with Christ. But wait a minute...Paul's conversion did not take place until he was on the Damascus road. So what happened? When The Lord saves us we are placed in His body. He is not bounded by time or space like we are. Our old nature was crucified with and in Him! Praise and bless His wonderful Name!
  • Jim
    We were baptized into His death. We are to reckon on that (count on that). Something very special happens when we believe this. We begin believing in what He has done with our old nature. He has crucified it in Christ! The price has been paid as if we ourselves went through the death penalty at Calvary. This was an act of God

    Sandra: I went through something like you. When the day of repentance came, it was a real and total conversion for ever. All praise and glory to our Lord Jesus Christ! I soon found that there were a lot of things I had to unlearn from before, and to relearn; and many former brethren forsook me after I came back. It is a gradual process of the Holy Spirit's teaching and leading us into all truth.
