Read all of Romans 6 it explains it well.<quoted text>
subject to one or more conditions or requirements being met
the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God
But I am going to quote a few of the verses here.
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
