Titus 2:14 ".....redeem us from all iniquity and purify.(original is 'has purified'---it's done, once for all time---).unto himself a peculiar.(original 'purchased').people......"

Colossians1:12-14 "Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet.(or fitting).to be partakers.(a part of).of the inheritance of the saints in light...Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son...In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins."

Hebrews 10:2 "Because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins."-But today...

2Timothy 1:10 "But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death and hath brought life and immortality.(original – 'incorruption, sincerity, purity').to light through the gospel." Romans 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man-is-crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin." Romans 6:7 For he that is dead is freed from sin."-A dead man can't sin. But you still do! So, read on and understand.

How did He bring this purity, this sincerity, this incorruption to our lives? That's what we'll see as we go through this subject.

To abolish death, sin has to be gone too -Romans 6:23; 8:2; John 1:29 "The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.(Acts 3:26)." 
Others may be aware of your faults. You are aware of them. But when it comes to how God sees you, well that's another story entirely!
    If you live by your thoughts and feelings.(Proverbs 3:5), so long programmed by externals you've always encountered as you lived your life, you think that's the real you. We are what we have accepted from outward information. This was Adam's error.
    Once God gets ahold of you, you are in union with Christ.(1Corinthians 6:17).and you begin to now respond to information from within. But not fully being aware of this yet, you conclude that there must still be something wrong with you, and you may feel as Paul, the great apostle did -Romans 7:14-25.
    Accept as true what God says about you and you move into the reality of who you now are in Christ. Stop this stuff about "that can't be me, I'm not perfect, I am flawed to the core, I'm so weak, I fall down all the time, etc.", and now think as God does regarding you, yes you! You are who God says you are, not who you think you are! The job of the evil one is to keep your attention glued to how you act, so you identify yourself with your behavior and not identify yourself with the source of all blessings now and forever for you.
    Doing good doesn't make you righteous, and doing bad doesn't make you sinful. Birth and not performance determines identity.

There are no failures in Christ as it's His righteousness that counts and not yours. 
    Sin still has dominion over some, because they are into various rules and regulations to keep themselves 'right' with God.(Romans 6:14; 3:19-28).and may use their own personal 'laws' to keep themselves right with others, which may include keeping apart from others and living selfishly.
    Problems occur anytime anything rules in you to regulate behavior apart from living with a heart, an attitude that has decided to love in all it does.
    There is no other way than love.(1John 4:8,16; John 14:6).to progress in the spirit. Any other way causes Christ to become ineffective in one's heart and thus, one's life. 

People hold onto their laws, a checkpoint for conduct as they still see things in them needing regulation -Romans 13:10.
    Such persons do not realize that in Christ they are indeed dead to sin.(original Greek meaning for 'sin' is 'missing the mark'), dead to missing the mark of love, God's highest form of expression through us: Romans 6:6-12."Knowing this, that our old man is.is crucified.with him.(as effective as Jesus' being crucified was for His death, so is our severance from sin, as far as God is concerned), that the body of sin might be destroyed.(by Him -Hebrews 1:3), that henceforth we should.('should', not in original).not.(or, 'can't' or 'no longer', as the original is a primary particle of qualified negation, not absolute negation. In other words, once one is qualified by belief in Christ, he is out of sin as far as God is concerned, even though he still may sin).serve sin.(or, keep missing the mark, which is what the word sin means). For he that is dead.(Romans 7:4).is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe 'that we shall also live with Him'.(original has it: 'that we are united with Him'); knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dies no more. Death has no more dominion over Him. For in that He died, He died unto sin once, but in that He lives, He lives unto God. Likewise reckon.(recognize, be aware, have it in your mind).you also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin.(missing the mark of love, so necessary to have a relationship with God).therefore reign.(sin reigns when you hold in your mind as true, a standard that tells you that you are a sinner, instead of a standard that tells you that you are righteous – Christ in you).in your mortal body, that you should obey it in the lusts thereof.(lust is excessive desire; desire that alters one's life's purpose away from God, or, consumed by desires; that is, one's desires become the 'be all, end all', the purpose for existing as compared to loving and caring for others needing it)." 

How can there be any sin.(missing the mark in things relating to God).if you are His, if you have accepted Him and He now lodges in your heart? In Christ we are one with God -Philippians 2:5,6; Ephesians 2:14. God never coexists with anything not as pure, as holy, as righteous, as perfect as He is. 
    Sin reigns in you when you believe that you have to relate to God by means of something apart from Jesus Christ, like laws, rules and regulations as were part and parcel of the old covenant
    The subject of sin becomes easier to understand once one understands what it means in the original
    Once one awakens to the fact that they are righteous, thanks to Christ's gift of righteousness.(Romans 5:17).to them, sin is null and void.(1Corinthians 15:34), he no longer misses the mark with God or man -Romans 14:18.-...continue?
