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?

    Forgetmenot,In Re:to the discussion about identifying a false Christian.It should not be a snap judgment and it should be based on God's standards, not men's. His Word tells us how a saved person is suppose to live. He tells us the sins that keep people out of His Kingdom. Christians are of one Spirit, they are like-minded. They love godly correction. One must be careful not to err in this.

    The tree IS KNOWN by its fruits; and, Faith is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things not seen. We are begotten from above by the will of God, and by His divine power, through the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ: it is nothing that can come out of man's imagination or pretending. Until a man humbles himself in sincere repentance to God, and is truly converted, he won't experience.
  • Forgetmenot
    To assume that one is free from sin, or converted cannot be verified except by God. To assume that one is saved also is up to God. That is why for this life of various degrees of suffering, one should be aware of the Big picture which includes the lawbook called the Torah. In that book one's rewards and punishment were swift and just. I consider the Old wine and new wine. My body-the bottle
  • Todd Brawley
    I believe this chapter is a good lesson to teach everybody and retract those that say they know it. I will review this often. It has a real clear meaning to me.
  • Sydney
    To live for Jesus and to love Him and to be in His Grace is so much better then living for the world and their so called lusts for life that only ends in death and never to My Savior again. Praise be to the ultimate gift of love and life.
