The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from King James Bible:|
ROM 6:7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
ROM 6:8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also
live with him:
ROM 6:9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more;
death hath no more dominion over him.
ROM 6:10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he
liveth, he liveth unto God.
ROM 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin,
but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
ROM 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye
should obey it in the lusts thereof.
