1. God ushers a justified person to a new life unto Him [dative of association] (verse 1-14)

(a) By associating/uniting him with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection (vv. 3-6)
(b) By separating him from sin’s dominion (verse 7)
(c) By moving him from living to sin to live to God (verses 8-10)

2 Sin continues to cause the believer to sin. Therefore, (verse 12)

(a) The believer must not let sin control his body (verse 13)
(b) The believer must continuously offer his body to God (verse 13-14)
(c) The believer must live in the freedom of God’s grace (verse 14)

3. The new life unto God involves change of masters (controllers—1. Sin & 2. God) (vv. 15-23)
