If you’re trying to stop sin, you’re presenting yourself to it. You’ve got it backwards and it won’t work. You’ll inflame the power that is sin by paying attention to it. Sin will not master us because we conquer it, but because Christ conquered it, and He is in us. The new way of living is to offer ourselves to Christ in us—to Him—and He produces righteousness and life. That’s the wonder of Christianity and life by grace: Christ in us. You’re going to like Him in you.
