Romans 6:1-4, Paraphrased

What shall we say? Should we continue under the demonic domain of sin leading to death so that grace may abound? Definitely not! How can we? We were baptized into Messiah Jesus!

ESV: What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
