Romans 6:1-4

Dead to Sin, Alive to God

1 What shall we say then? m Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 By no means! How can n we who died to sin still live in it? 3 Do you not know that all of us o who have been baptized p into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were q buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as r Christ was raised from the dead by s the glory of the Father, we too might walk in t newness of life.
