God
Romans 3:1-4
1
Then what advantage has the Jew? Or what is the value of circumcision?
2
Much in every way. To begin with, the Jews are entrusted with the oracles of God.
3
What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God?
4
By no means! Let God be true though every man be false, as it is written, "That thou mayest be justified in thy words, and prevail when thou art judged."
How
Genesis 39:9
he is not greater in this house than I am; nor has he kept back anything from me except yourself, because you are his wife; how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?"
Psalm 119:104
Through thy precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.
1 John 3:9
No one born of God commits sin; for God's nature abides in him, and he cannot sin because he is born of God.
dead
Romans 6:5-11
5
For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.
6
We know that our old self was crucified with him so that the sinful body might be destroyed, and we might no longer be enslaved to sin.
7
For he who has died is freed from sin.
8
But if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him.
9
For we know that Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him.
10
The death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God.
11
So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Romans 5:11
Not only so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received our reconciliation.
Romans 7:4
Likewise, my brethren, you have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead in order that we may bear fruit for God.
Galatians 2:19
For I through the law died to the law, that I might live to God.
Galatians 6:14
But far be it from me to glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
Colossians 3:3
For you have died, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
1 Peter 2:24
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
live
2 Corinthians 5:14-17
14
For the love of Christ controls us, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore all have died.
15
And he died for all, that those who live might live no longer for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.
16
From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; even though we once regarded Christ from a human point of view, we regard him thus no longer.
17
Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come.
1 Peter 1:14
As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance,
1 Peter 4:1-3
1
Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same thought, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
2
so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer by human passions but by the will of God.
3
Let the time that is past suffice for doing what the Gentiles like to do, living in licentiousness, passions, drunkenness, revels, carousing, and lawless idolatry.
