People's Bible Notes for Romans 6:13


Ro 6:13 Neither yield ye your members. The organs and appetites of the body must not be turned over to sin to use as instruments of unrighteousness. These have all been consecrated to God, by our rising to a new life, and we, as alive with the divine life, living to God, should use them all as instruments of righteousness unto God; i.e., as means of glorifying him and doing his will.
