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

  • Edna
    we are now called SAINTS OF GOD.So don,t let us be fooled by Satan that we can continue in sin let not his desires rule rule you
  • A Pilgrim
    The gift of God Does not come easy .It's "Doing his Word" rather than hoping to be saved. When I call someone "You Fool" in Anger,I am in danger of hell. How many time we "Think of" some one as You Fool?. How can one "Keep to the word of Christ".Than praising we need "training". Like Christ did, there is a training in solitude we can develop.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    We should always remember that the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
  • A disciple
    "Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?" Why did we turn to Jesus for mercy and forgiveness and a chance at a new life starting over with Him? Because we were lost and guilty in sins and uncleanness; and He died on the cross for our sins; and if we didn't repent and really amend our ways; we would surely die unfit for the presence of God!

  • A disciple
    Hi Wayne; Baptism is indeed a sign, as you say; and shows the washing of water by the Word. A person has to repent and confess to God, for the remission of sins, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. "At what instant" that person turns with a true heart unto God for seeking His mercy and forgiveness; at that instant does God also turn to count him clean and at peace and all things a new start.
