Central Idea: Paul addresses a supposed implication of 5:20, "...where sin increased, grace abounded all the more..." , viz. "are we to continue in sin that grace may abound more still?" Paul's answer is an emphatic, "No! We who died to sin cannot still live in it." The rest of the passage is an explanation of that truth based on our union with Christ both in his death and his resurrection. If we have died with Christ , then we have been raised with him to new life, no longer in bondage to sin, set free to obey God. Explanations/Questions: v.6, Though the ESV (and NASB) add the conjunction 'so that' to the final purpose statement, the Greek structure leads me to think that the phrase, "that we would no longer be enslaved to sin." is a restatement of the first purpose clause explaining what it means that, "the body of sin might be brought to nothing." Insights: Does grace open the door for sin? Paul's answer is to point his readers to... (1) A Truth (3-5), revealed in baptism, that our union with Christ is a union with both his death and his resurrection. (2) Its Implications (6-7; 8-11): that If we have been crucified with Christ, then as Christ conquered sin and death, we too, by his death have been set free from sin. Likewise, as Christ was raised, we too have been raised to new life. (3) Its Application (12-14): Therefore, do not let sin reign in your body. Daily victory over sin is not automatic, there is a always an option: to present ourselves as tools for sin or as tools in God's hand for righteousness. Paul's final point is that not only does grace not open the door for sin, grace is the very ground of our freedom from sin. Grace makes a way, not for sin, but for righteousness.

ἢ ἀγνοεῖτε ὅτι ὅσοι ἐβαπτίσθημεν εἰς Χριστὸν Ἰησοῦν εἰς τὸν θάνατον αὐτοῦ ἐβαπτίσθημεν
Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? [yes, you do know this.]
συνετάφημεν οὖν αὐτῷ διὰ τοῦ βαπτίσματος εἰς τὸν θάνατον
We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death,
ἵνα ὥσπερ ἠγέρθη Χριστὸς ἐκ νεκρῶν διὰ τῆς δόξης τοῦ πατρός
in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father,

We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again;
