If Christ died to free us from sin why do we who say we are saints still keep sinning?

Sin is very series…we live in the fallen world so even we saved and become spiritually perfect by believing the sacrifice of Christ on the cross…but still we live in the world where more influence of evil that’s why we need to spend more time with the Lord…and let the Word of God penetrate deep into our hearts then we will receive the power to overcome temptation, we Believers are in the processes of sanctification.

there is positional righteousness and the practical righteousness so we are positionally perfect being exactly like God but practically imperfect falling in many sins…so what we have to do is …we have to meditate again and again who we are in Christ…then we see amazing results in practical life…

we are in the process of sanctification, transformed day by day…by the renewal of the Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of Truth

The first one is about justification, and the second one is about sanctification. And we should know clear about these two. When we accept Jesus’ love of dying for us, we are saved and set free from sins; all of our sins committed before have been cleansed; this is justification, which means that our identity has changed. But this is not the end, for we still have sinful natures which make us sin again; and we should continue cleansing these sins by the precious blood of Jesus; this is sanctification, which means that our status is changing.

1 John 2:1 says "My little children (believers, dear ones), I am writing you these things so that you will not sin and violate God’s law. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate [who will intercede for us] with the Father: Jesus Christ the righteous [the upright, the just One, who conforms to the Father’s will in every way—purpose, thought, and action]. and,

Jude 24 says “Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling or falling into sin, and to present you unblemished [blameless and faultless] in the presence of His glory with triumphant joy and unspeakable delight,”[quote=“Sophia, post:1, topic:1165, full:true”]

Sin is a choice therefore, we don’t have to. We sin because, we want to because, we are following desires of the flesh.

Because Jesus died for our sin, after He died, we can recover relationship with God.
But we still have our habit sin.
