Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it?
for he who has died is freed from sin.
Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;
“ Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Remove the evil of your deeds from My sight. Cease to do evil,
They will burn your houses with fire and execute judgments on you in the sight of many women. Then I will stop you from playing the harlot, and you will also no longer pay your lovers.
Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus,
For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His.
For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
