By no means: how shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ, were baptized into his death?
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also [in the likeness] of [his] resurrection:
Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with [him], that the body of sin may be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
For he that is dead is freed from sin.
Now if we are dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
Knowing that Christ, being raised from the dead, dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
For in that he died, he died to sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth to God.
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts of it.
