There’s good news.
And then there is the best news.
This is the best news about the good news (from Romans 6).
- How shall we who died to sin still live in it? (v. 2)
- Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. (v. 4)
- For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; (vv. 5-6)
- for he who has died is freed from sin. (v. 7)
- Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. (v. 11)
- Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. (vv. 12-13)
- For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace. (v. 14)
- But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. (vv. 17-18)
- But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life. (v. 22)
