“Yes, when Christ died, he died to defeat the power of sin one time — enough for all time.
He now has a new life, and his new life is with God.
In the same way, you should see yourselves as being dead to the power of sin and alive with God through Christ Jesus.
So, do not let sin control your life here on earth so that you do what your sinful self wants to do.
Do not offer the parts of your body to serve sin, as things to be used in doing evil.
Instead, offer yourselves to God as people who have died and now live.
Offer the parts of your body to God to be used in doing good.
Sin will not be your master, because you are not under law but under God’s grace.” – Romans 6:10-14
