Two sisters, Mary and Jane Brown, were both converted the same day. The next day they were formally invited to some kind of party which they knew would be wild, and they felt that as newborn Christians they could not attend it. In their reply to the invitation they wrote: “Mary and Jane Brown thank you for your kind invitation but regret that they cannot attend. They died yesterday.” That was good theology because now they were dead to sin and alive to God. Indeed, verse 2 of Romans 6 might be more accurately translated: “Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we, we who died to sin, still live in it? The emphasis is on the word “we.” It is unthinkable that we should continue in sin. We’re dead!”
