Romans 6:3-10

3        Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized unto his death?


4        Therefore we were buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

5        If we have been united with him like this in his death, we certainly will also be united with him in his resurrection.


6        For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, so that we should no longer be slaves to sin--


7        because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.


8        Now if we died with Christ, we believe also that we will live with him.


9        For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.


10      The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
