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 6:14

  • Sanele tsela for verse 14
    The grace that teaches us to say no to ungodliness and worldly passions and to live self controlled upright and godly lives. is the same grace that will give us dominion over sin...thank you Jesus...king of kings, Lion of judah.
  • Delivered for verse 14
    Amen. I always hear controversy over Romans 6:14 but I believe, according to Paul 's reference in the very next verse that upholding the 10 commandments and what we can in the Law is still required of us, and not a liscense to sin as is often said. The laws we can 't fulfill in these modern times is where the grace comes in, through Christ, bless His name. Jesus said that he didn 't come to abolish the law but to fulfill it. And that it 's easier for heaven and earth to pass away before one of God 's laws become void. Thank you for your sacrifice Lord
  • MockingBird for verse 14
    Praise God : God has made a way that sin shall not dominate me any longer. God 's Grace is bigger than the bondage of sin I allow myself to get into. All I have to do is believe God for the deliverance of it and act accordingly : Of course that is not easy but if I hold to God 's word I will shortly see the manifestation of freedom in me and my life. I held onto God 's word for deliverance from smoking : even when I was still smoking and I got delivered . Been delivered now for 20 years. God will do the same in any other bondage and I will get deliverance. Because of what Jesus purchased for me I can do it !!!!
  • Charles Jones Sr for verse 14
    we need to know the word
  • Kingsley Ohuka for verse 14
    For us to get rid of the manifestation of the flesh, we must deal with the flesh itself, not just the individual manifestations. God abhors the old nature, therefore we should deny ourselves and carry the cross to follow our master Jesus Christ.
  • The New Covenant of...GRACE.
    Purchased by...Jesus Christ Our Lord.
    My chains are gone... I've been set FREE.
    Thank You JESUS
