Romans 6:6 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Could it be any clearer[a] that our former identity[b] is now and forever deprived of its power? For we were co-crucified with him to dismantle the stronghold of sin within us,[c] so that we would not continue to live one moment longer submitted to sin’s power.[d]

Footnotes:

  1. Romans 6:6 Or “Coming to know this,” or “Coming to the realization.”
  2. Romans 6:6 The Aramaic can be translated “our old son of Adam.”
  3. Romans 6:6 Or “body of sin would no longer have dominion over us.”
  4. Romans 6:6 Or “that the body of sin might be annulled” (put out of business). To beg God for victory over sin is a refusal to understand that we have already died to sin. Our joyful task is to believe the good news, rather than to seek to “crucify ourselves.” Sin is not suppressed by the cross; it is eliminated. Upon this “water” God commands us to step out and walk upon it, for we are now in him.
