People's Bible Notes for Romans 6:5


Ro 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death. As the seed, planted, buried out of sight, rises again in a new life, so we are planted in the likeness of Christ's death when we are buried in baptism, and rise [in the likeness] of [his] resurrection, when we are lifted out of the water, and are found henceforth to have a new life. Compare Col 2:12: "Buried by baptism, wherein ye are also 'risen' with him".

    Thanks be to God for saving us and most of all giving his only begotten son who die on the cross. That's Love!

    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
  • John nofi
    There remains no more sacrifice for sin. Jesus death paid the sacrificial price outlined in the old testament. All that is left for us to do is be obedient, and that is a matter of response to God's overwhelming goodness and love.

  • Pastor Donnie
    Romans 6 is a "Powerful" scripture when kept in it's proper context. It's important to recognize that the transition into "All" things spiritual. So many people think the apostle is talking about a water baptism here.He is not ! Paul is describing the spiritual baptism that we see in 1 Cor. 12:13. The work of the Cross of Jesus Christ is a complete work ! Nothing needed but faith in what he did!
  • Steve morrow
