The Scriptures —Study 11 — Romans 6:1-14

Study 11 From The Book of Romans Is: Romans 6:1-14

1.      What is now the position of those who are spiritually united with Christ (a) in relation
to sin, and (b) in relation to God? How had this change been effected?

2.      This being our position in Christ, how are we so to enjoy and express it as to live a life of victory over sin? See verses 11-14; and note the key-words, ‘consider’ ‘let not’, ‘yield’.
1.       The question in verse 1 arises out of what Paul has said in chapter 5, especially verse 20.
2.       Verses 3-10 are an exposition of verse 2
3.       Verse 6 ‘The sinful body’ means ‘the body in which sin ruled’, whose members were employed in sin’s service (see verse 13 and 19).
4.       Verse 7. A statement of the general principle that death ends all obligations and relationships (cf. 7:1, 2) is here applied to our former relationship to sin.
