Baptism is in similitude of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ—The wages of sin is death—Christ brings eternal life.
1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that agrace may abound?
3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were abaptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
8 Now if we be adead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
9 Knowing that Christ being araised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but aalive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
13 Neither ayield ye your bmembers as cinstruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but dyield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of erighteousness unto God.
17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have aobeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were afree from righteousness.
21 What afruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
