Bible commentary

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

  • 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
