Does the good news about Jesus Christ mean that we will just carry on sinning? After all we are no longer condemned for our sins when we put our trust in Jesus and his death on the cross that dealt with our sins.
Paul says, emphatically, 'NO! As Christians we no longer live in sin'. In this chapter in Romans 6, he explains why becoming a Christian means we will live lives of righteousness - not to be right with God, but because we are right with God.
