Dead to Sin, Alive to God

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:1 -

What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:2 - May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:3 - Or do you not know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:4 - Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:5 - For if we have become [fn]united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be [fn]in the likeness of His resurrection,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:6 - knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be [fn]done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:7 - for he who has died has been [fn]justified from sin.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:8 -

Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:9 - knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, [fn]is never to die again; death no longer is master over Him.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:10 - For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all, but the life that He lives, He lives to God.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:11 - Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:12 -

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:13 - and do not go on presenting your members to sin as [fn]instruments of unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as [fn]instruments of righteousness to God.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:14 - For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

Slaves of Righteousness

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:15 -

What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be!

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:16 - Do you not know that when you go on presenting yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin [fn]leading to death, or of obedience [fn]leading to righteousness?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:17 - But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you obeyed from the heart that pattern of teaching to which you were given over,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:18 - and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:19 - I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, [fn]leading to further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, [fn]leading to sanctification.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:20 -

For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:21 - Therefore what [fn]benefit were you then having [fn]from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:22 - But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you have your [fn]benefit, [fn]leading to sanctification, and the end, eternal life.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death, but the gracious gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
