8 Now aif we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,
11 Even so consider yourselves to be adead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
12 Therefore do not let sin areign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts,
13 and do not go on apresenting 1the members of your body to sin as 2instruments of unrighteousness; but bpresent yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as 2instruments of righteousness to God.
16 Do you not aknow that when you present yourselves to someone as bslaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of csin 1resulting in death, or of obedience 2resulting in righteousness?
18 and having been afreed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.
19 aI am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just bas you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, 1resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, 2resulting in sanctification.
20 For awhen you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.
