Christs Death or Offering accomplished the Sanctification of all those He died for Heb 10:10

10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Heb 13:12

12 Wherefore Jesus also, that [so that] he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

His Death accomplished their sanctification unto God before they are born. Just like it did Jerimiah Jer 1:5

5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.75
Christs death accomplishment is that those He died for will live unto righteousness, because His death for them causes them to be dead to sin 1 Pet 2:24

24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

How do they live unto righteousness ? By Faith in Christ who is their righteousness Rom 1:16-17; 1 Cor 1:30 76
Christs death accomplishment is that those He died for He reconciled them to God ! Rom 5:10

10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
It made us free from sin !

Rom 6:16-22

16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.

20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.

22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

The redemptive death of Christ accomplished for all whom Christ died, a being set free from sin, and being made a servant to God.

This simply means that the redemptive death of Christ sets us free from the prison if unbelief and causes us to become believers in Christ. When we become believers, we become true servants to God.

Jesus by His redemtive death sets us free from unbelief or being servants of sin Jn 8:36

36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed

The word free here is the same word for free in Rom 6:22 Paul uses. So Paul and Jesus are in agreement here. Its the word eleutheroō and means:

  1. set at liberty: from the dominion of sin, to be set free from another's control

This is needed because by nature all are under the control if the devil as per Eph 2:2-3

2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

3 Among whom also we all had our conversation[manner of life] in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

That was our manner of life or conversation by nature, no exceptions. But as Peter writes, Christs Blood redeemed us from this vain conversation or manner of life 1 Pet 1:18-19

18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

Were not for the redeeming death of Christ, no one would be set free from sin/unbelief and become a believer, or a servant of God, so God in Christ must have the Glory for becoming a believer, and not the so called freewill or decision of man, who by nature is a spiritually dead, satanic controlled slave to sin and unbelief. 77
Atonement was effectually performed by Christ on the tree Jn 19:30

30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Heb 9:12

12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

And its effectually activated by Christ on His Throne Heb 7:25

5 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

John 17:2

2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
The atonement is the work of Jesus Christ on the cross by which He finished the work of His perfect sinless, righteous life, made an end to the debt of our[The elect] sin, placated Gods thrice holy wrath against us, and gained for us all the benefits/blessings of salvation. f
