6:1 What will we say then? Will we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
6:2 Certainly not! We who died to sin, how could we live in it any longer?
6:4 We were buried therefore with him through baptism to death, that just like Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life.
6:5 For if we have become united with him in the likeness of his death, we will also be part of his resurrection;
6:6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with him, that the body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be in bondage to sin.
6:7 For he who has died has been freed from sin.
6:8 But if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him;
6:9 knowing that Christ, being raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no more has dominion over him!
6:11 Thus also consider yourselves also to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
6:12 Therefore don`t let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.
6:15 What then? Will we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? Certainly not!
6:16 Don`t you know that to whom you present yourselves as servants to obedience, his servants you are whom you obey; whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?
6:18 Being made free from sin, you became servants of righteousness.
6:19 I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh, for as you presented your members as servants to uncleanness and to wickedness upon wickedness, even so now present your members as servants to righteousness for sanctification.
6:20 For when you were servants of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.
