[1]Well then, should we keep on sinning that grace may abound??

[2]Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it?

[3]Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death?

[4]For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.

[5]Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as he was.

[6]We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin.

[7]For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin.

[8]And since we died with Christ, we know we will also live with him.

[9]We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and he will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him.

[10]When he died, he died once to break the power of sin. But now that he lives, he lives for the glory of God.

[11]So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.

[12]Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires.

[16]Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.

[23]For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

It is worthy to note that at the point of salvation our lives were exchanged....we took the life of Jesus Christ and became new creatures....For us to maintain this victory that Christ had given to us through death over sin,the world and Satan,we must not neglect the cross.

In your journey of life, always reflectively consider the essence of a life that has been crucified .it's no longer you who live,but you live for the master's use..

And at last you will say " you've fought a  good fight and finished your course and there remains a crown of glory"....
