What does it mean to be under grace?
The scripture says, “sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.” Romans 6:14
- It means that sin can no longer has control, hold or have dominion over you. Where it does means you’ve allowed it to happen.
- It means, that our old man is crucified with him, “that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.” Romans 6:6
Your body of sin was crucified with Christ, resulting in it now being destroyed, crashed and demolished the same way Jesus’ body was.
- It means that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death. “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” Romans 6:3-4
Walk in newness of life
“Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness” (Romans 6:18). As God’s servants we’re free from every other thing, yet not righteousness. For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness, but now your members are “servants to righteousness unto holiness.” Apostle Paul says, “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” 1 Corinthians 6:19.
You’re not your own, but you’ve suddenly become servants of God, and enslaved to righteousness if “ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you,” Romans 6:17.
Servants to God; “Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.” John 15:8.
- have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life, Romans 6:22.
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid.
“But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.” Romans 6:22
- have your fruit unto holiness!
