No, indeed; how shall we who have died to sin, live in it any longer?
And do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?
Well, then, we by our baptism were buried with Him in death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from among the dead by the Father's glorious power, we also should live an entirely new life.
For since we have become one with Him by sharing in His death, we shall also be one with Him by sharing in His resurrection.
This we know--that our old self was nailed to the cross with Him, in order that our sinful nature might be deprived of its power, so that we should no longer be the slaves of sin;
for he who has paid the penalty of death stands absolved from his sin.
But, seeing that we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him;
because we know that Christ, having come back to life, is no longer liable to die.
Death has no longer any power over Him. For by the death which He died He became, once for all, dead in relation to sin; but by the life which He now lives He is alive in relation to God.
In the same way you also must regard yourselves as dead in relation to sin, but as alive in relation to God, because you are in Christ Jesus.
Let not Sin therefore reign as king in your mortal bodies, causing you to be in subjection to their cravings;
