Wesley's Notes for Romans 6:1


6:1 The apostle here sets himself more fully to vindicate his doctrine from the consequence above suggested, #Rom 3:7|,8. He had then only in strong terms denied and renounced it: here he removes the very foundation thereof.


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?

  • A disciple
    Anthony; who told you that you sin every day? Are you really still sinning? Didn't you repent? Aren't you a thoroughly converted Born From Above New Creature in Christ? The blood of Jesus was shed for us to be completely set free from the power of sin over us, as well as our reconciliation and forgiveness. There are reasons for repeatedly falling into sin. It is an unclean spirit and disobedience.
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    He who is of born of God does not sin." - This is true you need to understand FULLY WHAT IS MEANT BY THIS. The holy spirit in you will open your understanding. Your flesh is no longer attached to your soul. Your uncircumcised now which means the holy ghost HAS sealed you off from your flesh. You'r the soul t doesn' sin ONLY your flesh only difference your grieved by sin and you have CONVICTION!
  • Anthony Wright
    I just read the social media comments for Roman 6:14, and one sentence stated that, "He who is of born of God does not sin." But in 1John 1:8, if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. Can you explain this to me? Because, I am a confirmed believer. And, I sin everyday. Mindful and unmindful.
