“Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
King James Version (KJV)
6:10 He died to sin - To atone for and abolish it. He liveth unto God - A glorious eternal life, such as we shall live also.
6:12 Let not sin reign even in your mortal body - It must be subject to death, but it need not be subject to sin.
6:13 Neither present your members to sin - To corrupt nature, a mere tyrant. But to God - Your lawful King.
Ro 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead, etc. So the Christian, buried and risen with Christ, must be like Christ in life, dead to sin, but living a godly life through Christ.
