Either you have to pay for them or ask Jesus to pay for them.

Depends on the sin. Jesus has paid for ALL sin on the cross, however, human law may require you pay for your sin depending on what it is. For Example, if you murder someone or steal from someone, the law of the land requires that you pay for that in prison or community service. If you lie, then that is something that the law of the land does not require you to pay for.

We are told to confess our sins. 1John 1:9
Jesus paid the price for our sins (past, present, and future)when he died on the cross. Jesus death was a sufficient, perfect sacrifice. Hebrews 10:10-25 His grace (free gift) is sufficient. Eph.2:8 He does not take back what he freely gives us.
We should not continue in sin. Romans 6:1-18
God chastens those he loves. Rev.3:19
Hebrews 10:26-30 The Lord judges those who wilfully sin.

What I have done in the past is covered by the blood. But what I do in the future isn't covered, because I have not yet sinned. If I sin and know it, then in order for God to forgive me I need to repent. If I don't repent then I will pay for those sins. Same as everyone else.

3. Jesus bought my sins and reaped in His own body the results of my sins. Thus He can take away both the sin and the results. He lets us have some results, but not until the end do we receive the full results of our choices. As the scripture says, Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the hearts of men is fully set in them to do evil.

2. We tend to use "pay for our sins" or "paying the price" meaning reaping the results. There are results of keeping our sins just as there are results of giving them to Jesus. The results are not paying for the sins, but a reaping of consequences. I touch a hot stove, I am burned. Being burned is reaping the result of my action. I sin, I must die. Dying does not pay for the sin itself, but is a reaping of the results of the sin.

1. In the truest sense, we never pay for our sins. Why pay for something already yours? Jesus alone paid for our sins so we could choose to let Him take them from us. Our sins are rightfully His for He has bought them, yet He will never force us to give them to Him. We may rob Him by insisting on keeping that which He has paid for.

The consequence for gluttony is not exclusively becoming "fat". A person can be a glutton for many things. "Fat" may be a result of dealing with hormones, metabolism, not eating the right kinds of food, heredity, etc. There are thin people who pile their plates unbelievably full, eat junk food and sweets and have a good metabolism. Some are smokers, so it isn't even a case of health and fitness. Judging fat people as gluttons could also be a sin if one doesn't know the facts.

True christ died for our sins,this opened the gates of heaven which were otherwise closed to mankind.but we still commit them so we need to ask pardon,every time we transgress in order to stay in that sanctifying grace --Failing which we shall have to render an account on the day of judgement, including idle words spoken.Mark 16-V16

No! We do not pay for our sins. God doesn't even remember them anymore Heb 8:12, 10:17, so who would we be "paying" for the benefit of?
Philippians 3:9, " found in him, not having mine own righteousness,...but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:"

Mima, great question. The NT teaches that Jesus, God incarnate, came to earth as a baby, grew up and didn't sin, died on the cross to pay for our sins, and rose again proving His victory over sin and death. So, ultimately and finally, He already paid for our sin(s). This does not negate that while still in mortal form we still will face some of the immediate consequences.. ie.. if you are a glutton, you will get fat. If you steal, you may end up in jail.
