Reckon yourself dead to sin but alive to God


For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:10-11

Since Jesus died once for the sins of all and now lives to God, so we also should regard ourselves as truly dead to sin, because our sin was punished on the cross of Christ, and alive to God through faith in Christ Jesus our Lord.

As Christ died for my sins and rose again to live unto You, grant that I now live for You, O God, as one who has died to sin and is alive to You through faith in Jesus, my Savior. Amen.
