Celebrating Grace

As I read Romans 6 this morning, I can understand why the whole idea of being "dead to sin and alive in Christ" raises question marks. Sin remains, and how it dogs our existence. Douglas Moo (NICNT) admits to it, as does Paul, but explains that what’s happened is a realm transfer: it’s not sin that rules although it remains, but Christ who reigns. The Christian life is about pushing back sin’s hold on us, submitting to a “celebration of grace” while taking care not to give in to the “abuse of grace.”
