    Yes, good stuff! I enjoyed all the comments and appreciate this forum. I think Paul puts it in straightforward terms that we are to live new lives, as servants of God.

    The blood of bulls and goats 'FORGAVE' sin. Not only did it forgive sin, but it cleansed the flesh from sin for A WHOLE YEAR! How much more the blood of CHRIST!!!
  • Bill Bats
    I hope the romans figured out what dead to sin means. Paul almost promotes sin in the previous chapters and here he I believe sets the truth out for the romans again like he did in romans chapter one. Great stuff. Some see death to sin as a mystery but I think it's plain to see.

    This chapter is often misinterpreted to mean that man can sin all he wants and still be assured of an everlasting life because Jesus Christ already paid for their sins!. In my opinion, this chapter means Christ died so we may be forgiven, we should live Christ-like lives to be able to see the heavens otherwise we are doomed unless we repent for the shortfalls

    Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he CANNOT SIN, because he is born of God. 1John3:9 Holy to the Lord!

    People are being mislead about Romans 6:14-15 and taken out of context. I encourage you to read the entire chapter to fully understand. Some folks believe that because of verse 14 they can sin whenever they want and GOD will continue to butys no attention to the last two words in verse 15.

    Just thinking of the passage that says to yield our members as instruments of righteousness. That as we are tempted to sin, to consider how we are using our " member", is it for righteousness, yielded unto God? Say our tongue, if we are tempted to lie or gossip, that we would be reminded to yield at that point to righteousness and to not use that member of our body as an instrument of sin.

    One of my favorite chapters in the Bible that so many overlook. We aren't to continue in our old ways after being saved by the Blood of Christ; we are to be His loyal servants, become like Him, and forsake serving sin which will only end in death and separation from God.

    Vanessa: All that You Post is Right and That's How It's to be, But Sometimes His Children Sin. If One Sin Sends His Children to The Lake of Fire, We All Would be There.One Bad Thought About Someone Hoping they Drop Dead or don't do so Good or anything like that. Turning On TV or The Internet etc. Not Telling Others how to be Saved.( 1John 1:9 - 2:1) If You Know One Who Sins Restore (Galatians 6:1

    Amen thank you Jesus for your word amen hallelujah
  • Maria
    Praise God! Because of the price Jesus paid with His blood, we can be saved and free to never ever sin again! What a wonderful thing to live life, free from sin! And to be able to have grace to face whatever life throws our way. There is nothing like having true peace in your heart and life, knowing your name is written down in the Book of Life and right with God! One can choose to sin, but God fo

    When Jesus Christ offered his life as a sacrifice once for all time, this allowed Christians to be free from the Mosaic Law. Now they were to be under the Law of the Christ.

    The Romans 6:14 really gave me a boost to have stronger faith and trust in god, just knowing that I'm cover under the Grace of God.
  • Nohn D. Zarwolo
    Roman 16:14 thought me a lesson that whatever you sow is what reap. when you deceive someone you will also be deceive. You don't have to lie or take what belong to another person. Just pray for what you want and trust God He give it to you.
  • Vanessa
    what shall we say then say we continue in sin, God forbid, knowing are old is also crucified with him we should be anew, and walk as he did , we are to become one like he and the father, if sin is death, the how do we become obedient to righteousness, we dont go on sinning and call ourselves saved , for then we a fake and false to the word of God
  • Gerson
    It is a great teaching! The insight that is within verse 9 is worth sharing in every corner of the world!

  • Tamia Dawkins
    It is ok if many people don't understand the meaning of the scripture. This is one of the many reasons why Jesus died on the cross for all of mankinds sins. The real true reason why Jesus died on the cross for all of our sins is so that we can have Grace trough God when it comes to our sins. It is definitely by faith and not by works.
  • Joseph
    Grace give us the ability to shun sin away in the name of Jesus Christ and Christ baptism is evidence for our salvation
  • BSP
    Verse 12~We need to gain control over our sinful inclinations. We can choose to do what is right.
  • Judah
    It means, Our sinful body (Old man) the old man is basically you before you learned God's laws
  • Randy
    Jesus said that whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin. So the only way to not serve sin is to stop sinning. But God be thanked, that ye WERE the servants of sin. Sin is all unrighteousness. Being free from sin we are now servants of Righteousness. PEACE!
  • Bruce Wayne
    Will, look at 1 John Chapter 3. Sin is a transgression of the Law (Law of God that is: His 10 commandments). If you continue in transgression of the Law then you continue serving sin. If you obey his 10 commandments you serve God. Psalms 89:34, God said he would never alter the very thing that came from his lips...from his very lips came his 10 commandments-See Exodus 20.
  • Quansto
    Hi Will versus 6 is saying that our old man or old personality died when Jesus died for us. so we are no longer slaves to sin
  • A disciple
    Will Virella; What it means that our old man is crucified with Christ, and that the body of sin is destroyed, and that from now on we should not serve sin? It means that when we repent and ask the Lord Jesus to forgive us for all we've done and are then really and truly converted; Jesus breaks the power of sin's hold of us, and we can start our life anew; no longer a stupid and helpless slave!
  • Will Virella
    What does it mean, Roman 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin?

    Thank you
  • Chris sprosty
    Romans 6 teaches to the believer we must obey God turn to obedience to enter heaven. Its sin to death or obedience to life.. So simple ! But most are already shouting not of works so making they own god and calling him Jesus that's why he says "depart from me worker of iniquity i never knew you"twisting the word of God is what the masses out there do..not of works doesn't mean you don't have to obey
  • Smeshque
    It is not of works lest any man should boast. But, belief leads to obedience. Obedience in loving God with all are being and our neighbor as self. Faith is an active thing. In James 2 you can see how faith without works is dead. It is not enough to just say I believe. One must execute that belief in obedience. If we love HIM we will keep HIS commandments.
  • Mike fisher
    Why is man so beset with contributing to his salvation by his works, there is none righteous, not one, yet we think we can attain some level that is pleasing to God. The standard is Jesus our part is to believe that, take God at his word and walk in it.
  • BSP
    Verse 17: We don't want to begrudgingly be obedient, but we want to be obedient from the heart towards God.
  • Randy
    Hi Audrey, I agree that the blood of lambs and goats could not wash the sins of the Jews or our sins away, but the Blood of Christ does! FREE from sin! Now serve Him in righteousness, HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, not my tears. Holy to the LORD!
