Identification with Christ
then shall we say? aShould
we continue in sin that bgrace
not! We who have adied
to sin, how shall we still live in it?
are you ignorant that all of us who have been 1abaptized
Jesus have been 1baptized
have been 1aburied
therefore with Him through 2baptism
into His death, in order that just as Christ was braised
from the dead through the 3cglory
of the Father, so also we might 4walk
if we have 1grown
together with Him
in the 2likeness
of His death, indeed we will also be 3in the 2likeness
of His resurrection,
this, that our 2old
man has been 3acrucified
in order that the 4bbody
of sin might be 5annulled
, that we should no longer serve sin as slaves;
he who has died is justified from 1sin
if we have adied
with Christ, we believe that we will also blive 1with
that Christ, having been raised from the dead, adies 1no
more; death lords it over Him no more.
For the death
which He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life
which He lives, He lives to God.
also you, 1reckon
yourselves to be adead
to sin, but living to God in Christ Jesus.
not let asin
therefore reign in your mortal body so that you obey 2the
of unrighteousness to sin, but 1present
yourselves to God as alive from the dead, and your members as 2weapons
of righteousness to God.
will not 1lord
it over you, 2for
you are 3not
under the law but under bgrace
we sin, because we are not under the law but under grace? Absolutely not!
you not know that to whom you present yourselves as slaves for obedience, his
slaves you are whom you obey, whether of sin 1unto
death or of obedience 1unto
thanks be to God that though you were aslaves
of sin, you have obeyed from the heart the form of teaching into which you were delivered.
having been 1afreed
from sin, you were enslaved to righteousness.
speak in human terms
because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to uncleanness and lawlessness unto lawlessness, so now apresent
your members as slaves to righteousness 1unto 2bsanctification
when you were aslaves
of sin, you were free with regard to righteousness.
fruit then did you have at that time? Things of which you are now ashamed, for the end of those things is death.
now, having been afreed
from sin and enslaved to God, you have your fruit unto 1bsanctification
, and the end, ceternal 2life
of sin is 2adeath
, but the gift of God is 3beternal
life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
