Romans 6:16-23 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
16 Do you not 1know that when you present yourselves to someone as 2slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of 3sin aresulting in death, or of obedience bresulting in righteousness? 17 But 4thanks be to God that cthough you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that 5form of teaching to which you were committed, 18 and having been 6freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19 7I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just 8as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, dresulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, eresulting in sanctification. 20 For 9when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 Therefore what f10benefit were you then gderiving hfrom the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is 11death. 22 But now having been 12freed from sin and 13enslaved to God, you iderive your j14benefit, kresulting in sanctification, and 15the outcome, eternal life. 23 For the wages of 16sin is death, but the free gift of God is 17eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
