A Voice from the Past - Ambrose

Therefore do you also crucify sin, that you may die to sin; he who dies to sin lives to God; do you live to Him Who spared not His own Son, that in His body He might crucify our passions. For Christ died for us, that we might live in His revived Body.

Ambrose, 337-397 AD, On the Holy Spirit, Book 1, Chapter 9, 109 (translated by H. De Romestin, The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, 2nd Series, Volume X,  Philip Schaff and Henry Wace, T & T Clark;  Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1997, p. 108)

What does mean to have our sins crucified with Christ? How should we live in light of it?
