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?

    To Arlen - Rom. ch. 6 is a good new convert chapter. And it's good for ALL of us to review occasionally - at least once a week - LOL. No, I'm not being facetious. Once a week isn't too often. The Day of the Lord is so much nearer than when we first believed .....

    Paul is teaching that the wages of sin is death. You can't make it's any plainer than that.

    I believe it is a warning to people to stop sinning and its an invitation to come to Know Jesus Christ as their Savior , and accept Him in their Heart, and have their sins washed away
