37 Believers are Dead to the Reign of Sin

Romans 6 v 1 – 2

1 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? (ESV)

Paul’s question is rhetorical – it requires no answer.

He reasons: ‘How can anyone who have died to the sin that used to destroy all the good things around them, go back to it?’

Salvation in Christ is purely sovereign grace alone.
The natural reaction of Paul’s hearers is to ask the question ‘shall I sin so that grace may increase?’, but Paul responds: God forbid!
