Christ died TO sin, not merely FOR sins (Romans 6:1-14)Eric Peterman, March 4, 2018
Part of the Justification of the Sinner Before God series, taught at a Sunday Morning service
We're used to hearing that Christ died for our sins. But Romans 6:1-14 teach something different: That Christ died TO our sin (singular). This is the concept that he died to sin as the ruling/reigning Master, and we (the Old Man, the man identified with Adam) were co-crucified with Christ. We no longer owe allegiance to Sin as our master, because we've been set free by our death with Christ. Here is a great key to the sanctified life.
I don't kill Sin, it's already dead! I'm to reckon this as true, because it is.

1What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 3Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 6Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7For he that is dead is freed from sin. 8Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: 9Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 11Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 12Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 13Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 14For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. (KJV)
