dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ
flip the perspective from viewing yourself as the subject to the object when you consider these words.
dead to sin means that as much as sin tries to exercise dominion over you and over your mortal body by taking advantage of its passions, it cannot. it finds a carcass. in Christ all sin finds in you is a dead body because Jesus Christ has died.
alive to God means that when God comes to you he finds you fully alive and invigorated and energetic and interactive and available because such is Jesus Christ before him. your mortal body is presented to him as an instrument of righteousness ready for him to use however he pleases. his grace finds you submissive and ready for it to reign over your life.
