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.

    Jesus reminded to Nicodemus that Unless a Man be born of water and the Holy Spirit He cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. It is very important for us to be Born Again in Spirit and not in the flesh . We should walk by Faith and not by sight somehow God loves us so much HE SENT JESUS FOR US SO THAT OUR SINS WILL BE FORGIVEN JESUS IS THE REASON WHY WE HAVE LIFE. LET'S PRAISE JESUS AND WORSHIP HIM
