Wesley's Notes for Romans 6:3


6:3 As many as have been baptized into Jesus Christ have been baptized into his death - In baptism we, through faith, are ingrafted into Christ; and we draw new spiritual life from this new root, through his Spirit, who fashions us like unto him, and particularly with regard to his death and resurrection.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 6:3


Ro 6:3 So many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ, etc. The fact that every follower of Christ has died to sin is shown by his baptism. All its symbolism points to death. To be "baptized into Christ" means to enter into a vital union with him, so as to be found in him. See Ga 3:27. Were baptized into his death. But this baptism into Christ implies death, for it is a baptism into the death of Christ. That the subjects of baptism are partakers of his death is shown by the form of baptism. It is a burial.

Discussion for Romans 6

  • A disciple
    In the parable about the lord who forgave his servant, and that same servant went out and took his fellow-servant by the throat, saying, Pay me what you owe! The other servants were grieved when they saw that and told their lord: so he called him and said to him, I forgave you all that debt, because you asked me; shouldn't you have had mercy on your fellow-servants, like I had pity on you?
  • Tony Ekanem
    The law stated " that a person who sold himself to another person (sin)because of his inability to pay his debt, can be redeemed by a close relative" Now, this close relative assumes the position of master in place of the "other person" The freed slave's Love, Loyalty, service and worship is now for his "close relative". Jesus paid our debt to set us free, he is our "close relative" and MASTER.

    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.
  • Lu2677
    Forgetnot,Are you saying one cannot recognize a saved person?Last part;Matt.12:34"out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh"John10:5 (a saved person will not follow a stranger)John10:27 (Jesus said)"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them,and they follow me" As in Isaiah11:2(does the person claiming to be saved have such things?)And 1Corinthians14:14. Saved=heeding God's word,repent.
  • A disciple
    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
