What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? 2May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? 3Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? 4Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. 5For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, 6knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin;  Romans 6:1-5

Their obedience to the gospel began with a "death to sin." 

We are not asked to die physically on a cross to obey the gospel...but first to die to sin (to be separated from the sin in our life).  Physical death is a separation of the soul and spirit from the body.  Death to sin is where sin is separated or removed from our body.

So how do we "die to sin?" 

As we have seen earlier in this lesson, we take the first step after hearing and believing the words of repenting from our sin (changing our heart and mind and turning away from the things that we do in our life).  But we cannot remove the sin in our life on our own.
