“For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.”
King James Version (KJV)

Paul is saying we no longer live under the law of "sin and death" Paul is not saying we don't live under God's law. Context is everything. When we fall short, we have grace, but as Paul and yeshua has said, not till heaven and earth pass will the law of God pass. If we no longer live according to the law of God, and if it is truly not applicable to new testament Christians, why then when yeshua returns to rule on earth does he practice the law? He will practice the law untill all things written by the prophets is fulfilled, then heaven and earth will pass away with the law of God, we won't need it after that because there will be no more urge. To sin.
We don't follow God's law to save us, we practice GODS law because we are saved, see the difference?
Your faith in the word (yeshua is the word in the flesh) is what justifies you.

The strongest motives against sin, and to enforce holiness, are here stated. Being made free from the reign of sin, alive unto God, and having the prospect of eternal life, it becomes believers to be greatly concerned to advance thereto. But, as unholy lusts are not quite rooted out in this life, it must be the care of the Christian to resist their motions, earnestly striving, that, through Divine grace, they may not prevail in this mortal state.

The grace that teaches us to say no to ungodliness and worldly passions and to live self controlled upright and godly lives. is the same grace that will give us dominion over sin...thank you Jesus...king of kings, Lion of judah.

Amen. I always hear controversy over Romans 6:14 but I believe, according to Paul 's reference in the very next verse that upholding the 10 commandments and what we can in the Law is still required of us, and not a liscense to sin as is often said. The laws we can 't fulfill in these modern times is where the grace comes in, through Christ, bless His name. Jesus said that he didn 't come to abolish the law but to fulfill it. And that it 's easier for heaven and earth to pass away before one of God 's laws become void. Thank you for your sacrifice Lord

Praise God : God has made a way that sin shall not dominate me any longer. God 's Grace is bigger than the bondage of sin I allow myself to get into. All I have to do is believe God for the deliverance of it and act accordingly : Of course that is not easy but if I hold to God 's word I will shortly see the manifestation of freedom in me and my life. I held onto God 's word for deliverance from smoking : even when I was still smoking and I got delivered . Been delivered now for 20 years. God will do the same in any other bondage and I will get deliverance. Because of what Jesus purchased for me I can do it !!!!

we need to know the word

For us to get rid of the manifestation of the flesh, we must deal with the flesh itself, not just the individual manifestations. God abhors the old nature, therefore we should deny ourselves and carry the cross to follow our master Jesus Christ.

please explain the superiority of grace over the observance of the law.

As helpless on our own as we are,we would be lost forever but because of His grace,we are clothed in His rightiousness. For this reason again,it is possible to attain the very rightiousness of Jesus.
