Are you ignorant that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
We were buried with him by baptism into death, in order that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.
So you must think yourselves dead to sin, but living to God in Christ Jesus.
Among these we all lived once in the passions of our flesh and of our thoughts, and we were by nature children of wrath like the rest.
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of his great love with which he loved us,
even when we were dead in misdeeds, made us alive along with Christ \'97 by grace we have been saved \'97

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness:
For if we have grown into union with him by the likeness of his death, surely we shall be united with him by the likeness of his resurrection.
For we know this, that our old-time humanity was crucified with him, in order that the sinful body might be made powerless, that we might no longer be slaves of sin.
For one who has died has been pronounced righteous and free from sin.
Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcision or uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, slave or freeman, but Christ is all and in all.
