Believers Are 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 - [fn]Far from it! 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 have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:4 - Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too may 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 [fn]self 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 the one who has died is [fn]freed from sin.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:8 -

Now if we have 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 [fn]the death that He died, He died to sin once for all time; but [fn]the life that He lives, He lives to [fn]God.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:11 - So you too, consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:12 -

Therefore sin is not to reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:13 - and do not go on presenting [fn]the parts of your body to sin as [fn]instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those who are alive from the dead, and [fn]your body’s parts as [fn]instruments of righteousness for God.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:14 - For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under [fn]the Law but under grace.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:15 -

What then? Are we to sin because we are not under [fn]the Law but under grace? [fn]Far from it!

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:16 - Do you not know that the one to whom you present yourselves as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of that same one whom you obey, either of sin [fn]resulting in death, or of obedience [fn]resulting in righteousness?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:17 - But thanks be to God that [fn]though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that [fn]form of teaching to which you were entrusted,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:18 - and after being freed from sin, you became slaves to righteousness.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:19 - I am speaking [fn]in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented [fn]the parts of your body as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, [fn]resulting in further lawlessness, so now present [fn]your body’s parts as slaves to righteousness, [fn]resulting in sanctification.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:20 -

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

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:21 - Therefore what [fn]benefit were you then [fn]deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is death.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 6:22 - But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you [fn]derive your [fn]benefit, [fn]resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, 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.
