Bible: Romans 6:5-14

6:5 For if we have become united with him in the likeness of his death, we will certainly also be united in the likeness of his resurrection. 1  6:6 We know that 2  our old man was crucified with him so that the body of sin would no longer dominate us, 3  so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. 6:7 (For someone who has died has been freed from sin.) 4 

6:8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 6:9 We know 5  that since Christ has been raised from the dead, he is never going to die 6  again; death no longer has mastery over him. 6:10 For the death he died, he died to sin once for all, but the life he lives, he lives to God. 6:11 So you too consider yourselves 7  dead to sin, but 8  alive to God in Christ Jesus.

6:12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its desires, 6:13 and do not present your members to sin as instruments 9  to be used for unrighteousness, 10  but present yourselves to God as those who are alive from the dead and your members to God as instruments 11  to be used for righteousness. 6:14 For sin will have no mastery over you, because you are not under law but under grace.
