Ok. That’s why I put “get out of jail” in quote marks, as a paraphrase of this verse:

Romans 6:7

for the one who has died is freed from sin.

The word for died is in the aorist tense and we surely do die a death like Christ’s. However, the word for freed, is in the perfect passive tense which indicates we die a death at a point in time and this continues and is done by someone not ourselves (as it is Christ who works in us).

Only because of this great act of mercy do we continue being made free of sin.

1 Peter 4:1

Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because the one who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin.

The word ceased here is also in the perfect passive tense (an action started and continued by someone else—namely,God).

The war of our rebellion is over.

Romans 8:39

nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
