By no means! How can 1we who died to sin still live in it?
Do you not know that all of us 2who have been baptized 3into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
We were 4buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as 5Christ was raised from the dead by 6the glory of the Father, we too might walk in 7newness of life.
For 8if we have been united with him in 9a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.
We know that 10our old selfa11was crucified with him in order that 12the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin.
For 13one who has died 14has been set freeb from sin.
Now 15if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.
We know that 16Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; 17death no longer has dominion over him.
For the death he died he died to sin, 18once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God.
So you also must consider yourselves 19dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Let not 20sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions.
