Romans 6:15-23

It has often been commented that Paul is a master teacher, and one method an excellent teacher uses is to present the same basic truth from different perspectives, so that those learning gain a thorough grasp of that truth. In our passage today, Paul underscores the teaching that the gospel, not human effort or will, provides the only truly comprehensive means of dealing with human sin, but he does so from a different viewpoint from that used in the first half of this chapter.
