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.

    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

    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.
