You Are Dead to Sin

Paul began Romans 6 by asking whether we should continue in sin. He answered emphatically no. He then explained why. When we were baptized, we were baptized into the death of Christ, because we also were dead, dead because of our sin, and we needed to be buried.
He then said, “For he who has died has been freed from sin” (Romans 6:7).
You died to a life of sin and when you were raised out of the waters of baptism, you were given a new life. Why then go back to that which brought spiritual death? You are now free from sin. Live that way.
