With a Free Conscience Fight against Sin

From the Heidelberg Catechism here.

32. Why are you called a Christian?
Because by faith I am a member of Christ,1 and thus a partaker of His anointing;2 so that I also may confess His name;3 present myself a living sacrifice of thankfulness to Him;4 and with a free conscience fight against sin and the devil in this life,5 and hereafter, in eternity, reign with Him over all creatures.6
1 1 Cor 12:12-27; 2 Joel 2:28 (Acts 2:17); 1 Jn 2:27; 3 Mt 10:32; Rom 10:9-10; Heb 13:15; 4 R 12:1; 1 Pt 2:5, 9; 5 Gal 5:16-17; Eph 6:11; 1 Tim 1:18-19; 6 Mt 25:34; 2 Tim 2:12
