2. Sin has been defeated. Jesus dealt an eternal blow on sin in His work of redemption. Sin has lost its ability to rule over you. In fact, sin is no longer a problem. 1 Corinthians 15:55-57, Rom 6:6

3. Jesus gave you the gift of righteousness in place of sin nature at new birth. You became the righteousness of God so that sin can be neutralized in your life. You are back in control. Romans 5:17, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Romans 10:10

5. It is not natural for a believer to live in sin. Christians don’t make a practice of sin. They sin because their unruly flesh overwhelms their spirit. Romans 6:1, 1 John 3:9

6. At new birth, believer’s past sins are remitted (wiped away). He starts his new life without any record of past sin. God has also made provision to restore fellowship when a believer misses the mark . The blood of Jesus provides forgiveness when a believer confesses his sin. Matthew 26:28, Hebrews 10:18, 1 John 1:7, 1 John 2:1

You must consciously reset your mind through meditation, study and confession of the Word to exercise authority over sin. Romans 12:1-2, Ephesians 4:23
