“For he who has died is freed from sin.” - Romans 6:7
We sin because we were born sinners. But, thank God we have been liberated from sin by the death of Christ on the cross. The death of Jesus covered all our sin, past, present, and future. This does not mean that we are free to sin, but it does mean that we are free from sin. We have been baptized into Christ, and He alone is our righteousness. When it comes to sin, never compare yourself to anyone else, but compare yourself only with the righteousness of Christ. My friend, get your significance in the fact that you are in Christ and He is in you, and this alone will keep you from the trappings of this world and the temptation to sin.
