kjv@Romans:6:8@ Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
kjv@Romans:6:9@ Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
kjv@Romans:6:10@ For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
kjv@Romans:6:11@ Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
kjv@Romans:6:12@ Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
kjv@Romans:6:13@ Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
kjv@Romans:6:14@ For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
kjv@Romans:6:15@ What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
kjv@Romans:6:16@ Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
kjv@Romans:6:17@ But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
kjv@Romans:6:18@ Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
kjv@Romans:6:19@ I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
kjv@Romans:6:20@ For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.
kjv@Romans:6:21@ What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
kjv@Romans:6:22@ But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
kjv@Romans:6:23@ For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Baptized into His death. How many of us realize that? That we may be free of sin... Let not sin therefore reign. There was a time when we had no choice, we were servants of the flesh. Being crucified with Christ now there is a second choice; and it does not appear that it is automatic that we will make the right choice in this new freedom. There are only two choices presented however. The other choice is to be servants of righteousness. We may think that that there is a third choice to do whatever we determine ourselves but that is the same as serving the flesh. This is the test of our faith, whether is strong enough to serve righteousness single mindedly and whether it is real enough to know that it is not automatic.
