Absolutely not! How can we who died to sin still live in it?
Or are you unaware that all of us who were baptizeda into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?
Therefore we were buried with Him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too may walk in a new wayb of life.
For if we have been joined with Him in the likeness of His death, we will certainly also bec in the likeness of His resurrection.
For we know that our old selfde was crucified with Him in order that sin's dominion over the bodyf may be abolished, so that we may no longer be enslaved to sin,
since a person who has died is freedg from sin's claims.h8
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him,
because we know that Christ, having been raised from the dead, no longer dies. Death no longer rules over Him.
For in that He died, He died to sin once for all; but in that He lives, He lives to God.
So, you too consider yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.i12
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, so that you obeyj its desires.
