3) collectively, the complex or aggregate of sins committed either by a single person or by many

1 peter 2
21 For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps,  who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth; and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously;  and He Himself  bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.


Repent, Strong's G3340 - metanoeō

1) to change one's mind, i.e. to repent
2) to change one's mind for better, heartily to amend with abhorrence of one's past sins


Luke
13 Now on the same occasion there were some present who reported to Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices.  And Jesus said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were greater sinners than all other Galileans because they suffered this fate? I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.  Or do you suppose that those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them were worse culprits than all the men who live in Jerusalem?  I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”

Obedience, Strong's G5219 - hypakouō

a) of one who on the knock at the door comes to listen who it is, (the duty of a porter)

Subject, Strong's G5293 - hypotassō

Romans 6
 6For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,  and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.



I believe that we are Saved by Grace. 
I believe that those are saved are to Repent from Sin. 
I believe that we are to be Subject to God and Submit to Him and His ways in Obedience. 
I believe that we are called to Perseverance against the flesh and the ways of the enemy. 

I believe that this is good news.
