Notes & Transcripts

We’re still on the book of ROM. Last time we were on (ROM 5) and we finished all of it. So today we’re going on to chapter 6.

     I. ROM 6:1

              A. In (V 1) he’s asking us the question, “If sin provides an avenue for God’s mercy to be displayed, should we keep on sinning?”

                        1. Of course we know the answer to that question. God never wants us to sin.

                        2. How many times has Paul ask that question?

                                  a. I think you’re getting the idea of what Paul had to deal with.

                                  b. Apparently there was a lot of sin in the Church at Rome.

                        3. Paul asked the question, “Should we keep on sinning?”

              B. V 2

                        1. 1st of all in answering the question, “Should we keep sinning?” The KJV says, “God forbid.”

                                  a. Really the wordGoddoesn’t appear there, but what he is saying is, “Absolutely not, in no wise.”

                                  b. The NIV says, “By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?”

                                  c. The Wuest translation says, That this V is saying that we died once and for all to sin, How is it possible to go back to living in it, (in its grip).

                        2. And if you think about it, How can we keep on doing the very thing that Christ died for to set us free from?

                        3. V 3-4

 

                                  a. I like how the Worrell translation starts off (V 3), “Or are you ignorant,”

                                  b. We have died to that old life.

                                           i. Christians should never tolerate sin in themselves. We should live in the newness of life. The Christ life.

     II. V 5

              A. When he uses the wordPlanted” in the KJV, it means a “literal burial.”

                        1. Our old man must die, we must die to that sin nature with the sins and lusts that go with it.

                                  a. That is the only way we’re going to be partakers in His resurrection.

                        2. Other translations render this V to say, Romans 6:5If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.” (NIV)

              B. ROM 6:6-10

                        1. Paul, 1st of all says, “Knowing this.” What are we to know?

                                  a. Know that our old manthe self life, which is dominated by sin, has been crucified in the person of Christ, who is our substitute.

                        2. Then he says, “That the body of sin,” that’s just another way to say, “The sin nature or the flesh.”

                        3. He then says, “That the body of sin might be destroyed.”

                                  a. The word “destroyed” might be a little too strong for what we have in the Greek.

                                  b. The Strong’s concordance says it means, “Come to naught or have no further efficiency.”

                                           i. Paul is not telling us to destroy our bodies, which is the temple of the Holy Ghost. He again is telling us to crucify the flesh, so that it will no longer dominate, and that the spirit will dominate.

              C. V 11

                        1. Give sin no place. Refuse to have anything to do with sin.

                        2. This V is also telling us to, “Reckon ourselves alive unto God.”

                                  a. Reckon means to “see yourself” or “think on.”

                                  b. It’s important for us to see ourselves and to think on that we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, so that we will have the faith that is needed in time of need.

              D. V 12-13

                        1. Again he’s telling us to put away sin, and yield ourselves over to God and to be those instruments of righteousness.

                        2. V 14

                                  a. At the new birth, the dominance of sin was broken, it is no longer your master.

                                  b. If you go back into sin it’s your own choice. You’ve been set free from sin, don’t choice to go back under that evil task master.

     III. V 15-18

              A. If you continue to sin you are a servant to sin and the penalty for those who are the servant of sin is death.

                        1. But praise God we have been freed from sin and we now, as Paul said it, “obey from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.”

                        2. What from of doctrine was it, that we obeyed, that set us free.

                                  a. Of course it was the Word of Truth, the Word of God.

              B. V 19-23

 

 

 

 

                        1. In all of these Vs Paul isn’t wavering from the point that he’s been on, The contrast between sin and holiness.

                        2. In (V 21) he says, “What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things {is} death.”

                                  a. That’s talking about sin.

                                  b. One thing that he says in this V is that sin will make you feel ASHAMED.

                                           i. You feel ashamed before God and man.

                                           ii. You feel condemned. You fell that everyone knows what you’ve done, and that they’re thinking evil of you. And 95% of that is the shame that you’re feeling.

                                  c. But praise God, there is a way out of the guilt and shame.

                                           i. (1JOHN 1:9) says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us {our} sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

                                           ii. ROM 8:1

                                           iii. We know that the penalty of sin is death, but for those that are following after the Spirit of God and obedient to Him receive the free gift of eternal life.
