For every child of God defeats this evil world by trusting Christ
to give the victory. And the ones who win this battle against the world
are the ones who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
1 John 5. 4-5 (NLT)
So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.
For the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you through Christ
Jesus from the power of sin that leads to death.
Romans 8.1-2 (NLT)
The old sinful nature loves to do evil, which is just opposite from
what the Holy Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are
opposite from what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly
fighting each other, and your choices are never free from this conflict.
Galatians 5.17 (NLT)
No matter which way I turn, I can’t make myself do right. I
want to, but I can’t. When I want to do good, I don’t. And
when I try not to do wrong, I do it anyway. But if I am doing what I
don’t want to do, I am not really the one doing it; the sin within
me is doing it.
Romans 7.18-20 (NLT)
Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin? Thank God!
The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 7.24-25 (NLT)
For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength
Philippians 4.13 (NLT)
