Trust in Christ's redemptive work at the Cross of Calvary allows God to do a work in the heart and soul of any man. I place emphasis on this initial work of God's Holiness.
The Holy Spirit gives the believer (a new convert) "a God given desire" to stop practicing sin. This new desire is the "power of Salvation" that any man has by trusting Christ alone for the forgiveness of sins. After man "trust's Christ" the Holy Spirit's initial work gives the believer a clean heart and a clean slate for holy living. This simply means a pardon from God is granted in exchange for man's faith and trust alone in Christ's redemptive work on the Cross. God's pardon (Justification) grants man a righteousness that helps this believer to live right and do right for the first time in his life. The God given attitude toward sin and sinful conduct (in the life of a beleiver) is to forsake sin!
To stop sinning and to forsake sin needs to be taught more this day and hour. This style of living and true Christian conduct is far better than living a "wavering life" in and out of God's saving Grace. I admit that "if we sin" we do have an advocate with the Father and that advocate is Christ. I also admit that any Christian can fall into sin...but the Bible teaches greater is He that is in me than he that it is in the world. Yes, the power of Christ is greater than the power of sin! The power of Christ teaches man "not" to sin. The power of the Holy Spirit takes people away from being bunch of "religious sinners" or "part time" Christian's. The power of the Holy Spirit leads man to "victory" over sin.
There is no victory in sinning religion. There is no peace in wavering faith. There is no contentment in sinful conduct. The only way any soul can be satisfied completely in this life...is by trusting Christ's redemptive work at the cross at Calvary alone for the forgiveness of sins. The holy heart and the holy life will find contentment. That contentment cannot be found through any other source in life...outside of the Christ I write about! Glory to Christ I serve! Glory to the God of my Salvation! Glory to the source of my holiness and righteousness in the eyes of God!
