The passages below,(some are paraphrases) shows that as Christians that we should live for righteousness and be dead to sin. Our struggle with sin can be overcome because Christ was crucified and he was raised from the dead, therefore we too have the Spirit of holiness in us and whatever is your struggle, you can overcome.
For we know that our old self was crucified with him, so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin because anyone who has died has been free from sin.
The death he died, he died to sin once for all, but the life he now lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourself dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Grace leads to righteousness and the law leads to death. The grace of God sets me free, the law holds me under sin.
We died to sin, how can we live any longer in it.
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal bodies so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer the parts of your body to sin as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness. For sin shall not be your master because you are not under law but under grace.
