Romans 6:7-12
New King James Version (NKJV)

For he who has died has been freed (Justified in Greek) from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11 Likewise you also, reckon (logizomai in Greek means reality. Facts) yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.

logizomai in Greek meaning

  • i have money in bank means, i have money in bank
  • I am a man means i am a man

Likewise

  • Did Jesus die to sin in character and conduct?
    • No
    • Because He has no sin in His character and conduct.
  • Similarly we have to reckon ourselves
    • The way Christ died to sin
  • Jesus died to sin to
    • the Guilt
    • the punishment
    • the imputation of sin
    • the Condemnation
    • That was on Him
  • Reckon it once and for all
    • It can never be imputed to you again
    • God can never condemn a believer

In the book of Romans

sin is mentioned 45 times and only one time it is a verb. Other times its a noun.

Therefore

  • Therefore is based on the previous verse
  • Even when you fail, you are not under the guilt, the imputation, the condemnation, and the punishment .. This will let sin not reign.

Romans 4:13-15
World English Bible (WEB)

13 For the promise to Abraham and to his offspring that he should be heir of the world ( or to his seed )wasn’t through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void, and the promise is made of no effect. 15 For the law produces wrath, for where there is no law, neither is there disobedience.

  • We are IN Christ Jesus
