Dead to Sins
When you become 'Born Again',
the life of sin loses its charms for you. 
If Mr. Sin did a roll call, you would be counted absent, as you are now not only sick of sin,
but you are 'dead', or unresponsive to sin
Instead, you reject sin, MORTIFY sin,
walk away from anything remotely
resembling sin. Now you are busy
living your life in Christ, for
His sake, for goodness',
righteousness', and
holiness'
sake.
...Christ also suffered for us,
leaving us an example,
that ye should follow in His steps...
who His own self bare our sins
in His own body on the tree,
that we, being dead to sins, should
live unto righteousness:
by whose stripes
ye were healed. 
1 Peter 2:  
21, 24
