Romans 6:14-23

14 For sin will not have dominion over you. For you are not under law, but under grace.  15 What then? Shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? May it never be!  16 Don't you know that to whom you present yourselves as servants to obedience, his servants you are whom you obey; whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?  17 But thanks be to God, that, whereas you were bondservants of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching whereunto you were delivered.  18 Being made free from sin, you became bondservants of righteousness.

19 I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh, for as you presented your members as servants to uncleanness and to wickedness upon wickedness, even so now present your members as servants to righteousness for sanctification.  20 For when you were servants of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.  21 What fruit then did you have at that time in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.  22 But now, being made free from sin, and having become servants of God, you have your fruit of sanctification, and the result of eternal life.  23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
