When Paul speaks of being dead to sin, he’s using a figure of speech. He is not referring to literal physical death. What does he mean? He means that sin is off limits. How many of you who are married can remember your wedding vows? When you got married did you pledge to “forsake all others”? What does that mean? That you were now “off limits” to anyone other than the one you were marrying? That everyone else was now “off limits” to you except the one you were marrying? You were dead to them and they were dead to you.
