Sin’s Power Is Broken

6Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace?G5101G2046G3767G1961G266G2443G5485G4121 2Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it?G3361G1096G4459G3748G599G266G2198G2089G1722G846 3Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death?G2228G50G3754G3745G907G1519G2424G5547G907G1519G846G2288 4For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.G3767G4916G846G1223G908G1519G2288G2443G5618G5547G1453G1537G3498G1223G1391G3962G3779G2249G2532G4043G1722G2538G2222 5Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as he was.G1063G1487G1096G4854G3667G846G2288G2071G235G2532G386 6We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin.G1097G5124G3754G2257G3820G444G4957G2443G4983G266G2673G3371G2248G1398G3371G1398G266 7For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin.G1063G599G1344G575G266 8And since we died with Christ, we know we will also live with him.G1161G1487G599G4862G5547G4100G3754G4800G2532G4800G846 9We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and he will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him.G1492G3754G5547G1453G1537G3498G599G3765G2288G2961G3765G2961G846 10When he died, he died once to break the power of sin. But now that he lives, he lives for the glory of God.G3739G1063G599G599G266G2178G1161G3739G2198G2198G2316 11So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.G3779G3049G5210G2532G1438G1511G3498G3303G266G1161G2198G2316G1722G2424G5547G2257G2962 12Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires.G936G3361G266G3767G936G1722G5216G2349G4983G1519G5219G846G1722G1939G846 13Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve sin. Instead, give yourselves completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life. So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God.G3366G3936G5216G3196G3696G93G266G235G3936G1438G2316G5613G2198G1537G3498G2532G5216G3196G3696G1343G2316 14Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God's grace.G1063G266G2961G3756G2961G5216G1063G2075G3756G5259G3551G235G5259G5485 15Well then, since God's grace has set us free from the law, does that mean we can go on sinning? Of course not!G5101G3767G264G3754G2070G3756G5259G3551G235G5259G5485G3361G1096 16Don't you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.G1492G3756G3754G3739G3936G1438G1401G1519G5218G1401G2075G3739G5219G2273G266G1519G2288G2228G5218G1519G1343 17Thank God! Once you were slaves of sin, but now you wholeheartedly obey this teaching we have given you.G1161G2316G5485G3754G2258G1401G266G1161G5219G1537G2588G5179G1322G1519G3739G3860 18Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.G1659G1161G1659G575G266G1402G1343 19Because of the weakness of your human nature, I am using the illustration of slavery to help you understand all this. Previously, you let yourselves be slaves to impurity and lawlessness, which led ever deeper into sin. Now you must give yourselves to be slaves to righteous living so that you will become holy.G3004G442G1223G769G5216G4561G1063G5618G3936G5216G3196G1401G167G2532G458G1519G458G3779G3568G3936G5216G3196G1401G1343G1519G38 20When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the obligation to do right.G1063G3753G2258G1401G266G2258G1658G1343 21And what was the result? You are now ashamed of the things you used to do, things that end in eternal doom.G5101G3767G2590G2192G5119G1909G3739G1870G3568G1870G1063G5056G1565G2288 22But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life.G1161G3570G1659G575G266G1161G1402G2316G2192G5216G2590G1519G38G1161G5056G166G2222 23For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.G1063G3800G266G2288G1161G5486G2316G166G2222G1722G2424G5547G2257G2962
