Romans 6:1

Romans 6:1

What could be more glorious than to know that we are forgiven of our sin, redeemed from slavery to sin and saved from eternal condemnation by God's amazing grace.. through faith in the redemptive work of Christ - and yet some would argue that this superabundant grace not only permits the believer to keep on sinning, but encourages a life of sin. God forbid, is Paul's emphatic response, how shall we, that are dead to sin, still live in sin?

Romans 6:2

Romans 6:2

Just as the work of the cross provides salvation when we believe it to be true - in the same way the work of the cross also provides victory over the old sin nature when it is believed. We need to understand that the sin nature remains with us until our life on earth is ended – but the blood of Christ has given us victory over the functioning power of the sin nature within our life.

Before rebirth we are connected to our sin read more...

Romans 6:3

Romans 6:3

How important to know what our salvation means, and Paul tells us that the moment we trust in Christ we are baptised by one Spirit into His BODY - the Holy Spirit placed us into Christ Jesus and we became members of His body, which is the Church.

But not only are we baptised into the body of Christ at the moment of our salvation but we have also been baptised into His DEATH. Water baptism may be a lovely picture of going down into read more...

Romans 6:4

Romans 6:4

The moment that we were born again, the Holy Spirit takes us from the kingdom of darkness and places us into the kingdom of God's dear Son - we are baptized into the body of Christ and become one with Him.

Water baptism, (though not read more...

Romans 6:4

Romans 6:4

Christ died to pay the price for sins committed in our lives - so that we might be forgiven and Christ rose again the third day to break the power of sin in our lives, so that we may live the rest of our Christian life free from the powerful strangle-hold of sin within our hearts - and in this glorious chapter Paul transports us to the pinnacle of who we are in Christ and what His death and resurrection really means to all who believe on His name. Paul paints in read more...

Romans 6:5

Romans 6:5

Paul longed to know Christ and the power of His resurrection but his heart was also to share in Christ’s suffering, for he desired intimate association with the Lord Who bought him, in the everyday circumstances of his life.

Paul knew the importance of relational closeness with the Lord Jesus – for by faith in His sacrificial death on our account, we were positioned in Him, and eternally united with the Lord Jesus Christ, in read more...

Romans 6:6

Romans 6:6

One could contemplate the wealth of truth packed into this single verse of Scripture for a lifetime and only scratch the surface of God's amazing grace towards those.. who by faith in Christ are united with HIM. Jesus is our Substitute, our Representative, and heavenly Advocate. Jesus is the Author of a new creation, Whose resurrected life has become our new-born-again-life. In Christ we have been made an entirely new race of people, which has removed read more...

Christ not only died for sin.. for our justification, but He died unto sin.. for our sanctification. He not only died for sin, by paying the penalty of sin - but He died unto sin, breaking the power of sin in our life.

Romans 6:8

Romans 6:8

Identification with Christ's death is the most thrilling doctrine for the believer. Christ died for our sins.. to pay the price for our sins, but He also died TO sin - His death broke our relationship to sin, which enables us to walk in newness of life. Although we are to take up our cross daily and will suffer for our faith.. we died to sin once and for all.. the moment Christ died unto sin on our behalf and now we are to live for Christ day by read more...

Romans 6:9

Romans 6:9

We who by God's grace have been placed IN Christ by faith, are identified with Him and He with us. Indeed when we start to truly understand the significance and importance of our mutual identity.. we begin to understand the depth of the riches of both the wisdom of God.. and His gracious love towards us.

Christ identified with our sin and took the punishment that we deserve, so that we might identify with His righteousness, by read more...

Romans 6:10

Romans 6:10

When our Saviour died on the cross He did so much more than dying FOR our sins and paying the price of our sins, He died TO sin. Jesus died UNTO sin and this means that He died to break the POWER of sin in our lives. He died to sever us from the old sin nature that we inherited from our parents - because of Adam's sin. He died to deliver us from the very influences of sin in our lives: Jesus died UNTO sin ONCE and for ALL, but the life that He lives, He lives read more...

Romans 6:11

Romans 6:11

Christ not only died for our sins - to pay the price for our sin, but He died to sin - so that the power of sin might be broken in the lives of all who believe in Christ. Just as Adam was the federal head of all his physical seed (i.e. all humanity), so Christ is the federal head of all His spiritual seed (i.e. all Church-age believers). Just as all who are physical descendants of Adam are imputed with Adam's read more...

Romans 6:12

Romans 6:12

Throughout the preceding verses, Paul showed by logical progression that all humanity has sinned. He proves that all fall short of God’s glory and that the consequences of our sin is death. Paul makes it very clear that the wages of sin for every sinner, Jew and Gentile alike is death - everlasting death - eternal separation from God. He shows that every sinner is alive to sin and dead to God. Every unbeliever is dominated by sin and estranged from God. read more...

Romans 6:13

Romans 6:13

Romans is the seed-bed for Christian doctrine and Paul lays out the foundational truth of the glorious gospel of grace in this book, in a clear, concise and systematic way. In the previous chapters Paul took pains to show us that all men are sinners - both Jew and Gentile alike. All are in need of a Saviour and the only way to escape condemnation; to be eternally justified; to be declared righteous in God's eyes and to be positionally set apart unto Him.. is by read more...

Romans 6:14

Romans 6:14

In other passages in the Bible we know that Christ died FOR our sins but in this passage in Romans we know that Christ also died UNTO sin. In the first instance Christ died to pay the price of our sins which means that the price that Jesus paid for our sin was His death – but in the second case Christ died to break the power of sin in our life, which means that for the rest of the time that we live in this sinful world. sin does not have to have power over read more...

Romans 6:16

Romans 6:16

God spoke the world into existence and by His Word He declared His unchanging and unchangeable laws into being and so often in Scripture we see God’s principles laid out so simply and yet we are often unable or unwilling to apply His instruction in our own lives. Paul here contrasts God’s principles of servitude and slavery with the liberty and freedom, that is in Christ Jesus, so that we may live godly lives by rejecting the former and applying the latter.

Romans 6:17

Romans 6:17

No doubt through the eternity of eternities we will thank God that although we were once slaves of sin, estranged from God and without hope in the world.. His Holy Spirit convicted us of our own gross sinfulness.. our need of a Saviour; of Christ's perfect righteousness and of God's righteous judgement on all that is evil. No doubt in the ages to come we will show forth praise and thanksgiving to our heavenly Father that we heard and responded to the gospel of read more...

Romans 6:18

Romans 6:18

Paul is setting out the only two options for life that are given to believers. He explains the differences between the two choices we have; the benefits we derive and the consequences of our decisions.. and they depend entirely upon which of the two paths we choose to take in our Christian life.

Paul explains that there is a principle of life for every one of us. We are servants under the authority of a master and as a servant we read more...

Romans 6:19

Romans 6:19

Either we are in the kingdom of darkness or the kingdom of light. Either we are children of our father the devil or we are children of our Father the Lord God almighty. Either we are in the old creation in Adam or we have been born again into the new creation in Christ. Either we are slaves of sin, impurity and lawlessness or we are slaves of righteousness, life and truth, which is the path that leads us into sanctification (- the lifelong process of being read more...

Romans 6:20

Romans 6:20

In His final message to the disciples, the Lord Jesus explained that knowledge of the truth was man's greatest freedom, in a world that is enslaved by sin, oppressed by Satan, condemned to death and bound for hell. And here is this verse we find that Paul is expressing the same truth, in a way that appears to be somewhat incongruous on the surface, for we read: when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.

Romans 6:22

Romans 6:22

Christ not only died FOR our sin.. to pay the penalty for sin (which positioned us in Christ and baptised us into His Body).. but He also died UNTO sin, so that the power of sin could be broken in the lives of all who believe in Him for salvation. Not only did the PRICE of sin have to be paid-for, in order to secure our salvation but also the POWER of sin in the lives of believers had to be severed - in order to deliver read more...

Romans 6:23

Romans 6:23

There is no more important issue in the life of every-man but knowing the way of salvation, because there are eternal consequences that lead to an eternal life with God or an eternal separation from Him – heaven or the lake of fire. But some ignore it or delay it, others misunderstand it and still more do not consider that they need to be saved from their sin. Many today do not consider that they are sinners, but see themselves as good people, especially in read more...
