"Common", koinos derivative. Also translated "unholy". We are cleansed by our believing in the Lord Jesus Christ unto salvation, therefore we are holy, we are sanctified, we are separated out from the rest of the world. That is a big deal! We are not subject to the same fate as the rest of the world, we do not have to accept the five-senses knowledge and results that come from not being born again. We must also think of ourselves as holy...so we can believe for healing and whatever else we need to access the promises of God! For example, when we go to the doctor we do not have to accept a death sentence! Since Christ has healed us by his stripes, we remind ourselves that we are holy and have been cleansed, therefore we have a right to believe God for healing for ANY disease! We do not have to accept defeat in any area of life since we have been made victorious by the blood of the Lamb.
