Romans 6: 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. 17 But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance. 18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness. 20 When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness. 21 What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death! 22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in[b] Christ Jesus our Lord.
