For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he lives, He lives unto God.
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
(Gal.2:19) “For through the Law I died to the Law, that I might live to God.
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
(Eph.4:22) that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit,
neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin; but yield yourselves unto God, as those that re alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
For sin shall not have dominion over you:
(Ps.130:7,8. Mic.7:19. John 8:36. Gal.5:18. Tit.2:14. Heb.8:10. ) O Israel, hope in the LORD; for with the LORD there is loving kindness, And with Him is abundant redemption. And He will redeem Israel from all his iniquities. He will again have compassion on s; He will tread our iniquities under foot. Yes, thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.”If therefore the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. who gave Himself for us, that he might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.” For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel , after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their minds, and I will write them upon their hearts. and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
for ye are not under the law, but grace.what then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace:
(1Cor.9:21) to those who are without, as without law, though not being without the law of God but under the of Christ, that I might win those who are without the Law;
God forbid. 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? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. (Luke 1:74-75 Gal.5:1. 1Pet.2:16.) To rant us that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve Him without fear, In holiness and righteousness before him all our days. It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bonds slaves of God.
