Becoming a Christian is such a joyous event. We've been given new life and feel that we truly are a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17). Our sins are forgiven and we've been washed clean.
But then our old nature begins asserting itself. We still have that temper problem. We still battle lust. We are still plagued by guilt. What happened to the new life? Why do we feel trapped by the old one?
The problem, of course, is as old as mankind. We must battle our old nature, as Paul says in Romans 7. And we certainly can't do it on our own. As Paul proclaims in Romans 8, only Christ can set us free through the power of his indwelling Holy Spirit.
This download will give you perspective and tools to begin to access the Holy Spirit's power to break being stuck in sin and to victoriously win this battle.
