Dead to Sin, Alive to God
By being baptized in Christ, we are baptized into death, the death of sin. Therefore, don't let sin reign in your mortal body, focus on God.
Or something like that, it's poetic but basically seems to say "don't sin, focus on God"
Slaves to Righteousness
You can be either slaves to sin which leads to death, or you can be slaves to obedience, which leads to righteousness. You should be slaves to God.
What a strange way to put it. This is a letter to try to convince the Romans right? Is it persuasive to say this?
