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.
The word of God promises us that if we will lay down our life, our wants, our selfishness, our desires, our lusts, our sins at the foot of the cross, that old man will be crucified with Jesus.
It is by the death of self, that the Adam nature is overcome. It is by the death of self that we are freed from the bondage of this flesh, and we can walk in the grace of God, and not be servants of sins any longer..

Romans 6:1-4 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

I was witnessing to a group of people who were of the Wicca faith (witches) and I was testifying about the death of self. And some thought that I was speaking of a literal suicide. One said, “Are you speaking Metaphorically or do you really die?” I said you only stop breathing for a moment as they bury you in baptism. I have found that the greatest witness for someone like this is your personal testimony. Tell them about what you once were before you were crucified, and then tell them what you are in Christ Jesus. Now notice the promise that is made to us if we crucify self and are buried with Christ in baptism.

Romans 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection
If we lay down our old lives for Christ, we will be given a new life in Christ and we will receive his likeness. Or in other words we will reflect his image.
When the Father looks at the born again Christian, does he see the old man? No for he is passed away, behold all things are new.
When he looks at us does he see our past record of sin and failure? No, it is as if it was cast into the sea never to be remembered again.
When the Father sees the born again Christian does he see a carnal enemy? No he sees the imputed righteousness of his precious Son. And thus He is not ashamed to be called our God.
And when the Christian looks into the law of God, he doesn’t see death, but he sees it as the perfect law of Liberty.
