Wesley's Notes for Romans 6:14


6:14 Sin shall not have dominion over you - It has neither right nor power. For ye are not under the law - A dispensation of terror and bondage, which only shows sin, without enabling you to conquer it. But under grace - Under the merciful dispensation of the gospel, which brings complete victory over it to every one who is under the powerful influences of the Spirit of Christ.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 6:14


Ro 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you. Hence, has no right to the use of our bodily members. We are dead to sin. For ye are not under the law, but under grace. Paul has shown that law revealed sin. Where law exists, and the sinful nature remains, sin will continually manifest itself. But we are under grace. Our sins were forgiven on the ground that we have died to sin, been buried and risen with Christ. Hence, unless we trample all this under foot, there is no room for the dominion of sin.

Discussion for Romans 6

  • Randy
    Anthony: The Bible says all HAVE sinned(past tense) and fallen from the Glory of God's Grace. So one cannot say they 'have no sin' without deceiving themselves. The Bible also says that we are to put to death the sin full nature by believing the TRUTH and studying the Scriptures diligently. Did not Jesus say He took away our sin? Isn't that the TRUTH? Repent means a reversal of opinion. Lord Bless

  • 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.
