Wesley's Notes for Romans 6:14


6:14 Sin shall not have dominion over you - It has neither right nor power. For ye are not under the law - A dispensation of terror and bondage, which only shows sin, without enabling you to conquer it. But under grace - Under the merciful dispensation of the gospel, which brings complete victory over it to every one who is under the powerful influences of the Spirit of Christ.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 6:14


Ro 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you. Hence, has no right to the use of our bodily members. We are dead to sin. For ye are not under the law, but under grace. Paul has shown that law revealed sin. Where law exists, and the sinful nature remains, sin will continually manifest itself. But we are under grace. Our sins were forgiven on the ground that we have died to sin, been buried and risen with Christ. Hence, unless we trample all this under foot, there is no room for the dominion of sin.

Discussion for Romans 6

  • Justin
    When we receive God's revelation given in this chapter, we will walk in total victory over the world, flesh and the devil! Understand this chapter is spiritual not carnal....It's not speaking of water baptism, but rather, our co-participation in the death of Christ! WOW! When we got saved we DIED to sin, and now LIVE unto God!
  • 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

    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.
