Commentary: Salvation and peace come through acceptance of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. One man (Adam) brought sin into the world, and one man (Jesus Christ) offers salvation to the world. To Jesus, all sin is equal, from the smallest lie, to a mass murder. We should strive to live apart from the chains of sin, instead being slaves to righteousness.
Focus Verses: 6:15-18 Too many, especially the Biblically uneducated, are under the impression that sin doesn't matter. One can live their life however they want, because all they must do before they die is say the magic words and become saved. How does this passage prove that assumption wrong? Are there any parts of your life that you constantly and willing permit sin, knowing you are saved and will be forgiven?
