As Christians, we can make right choices since we have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit according to II Tim. 1:14 – “by the Holy Spirit Who dwells within us.”
Therefore, we can do anything we ought to do as commanded by God.
Where is the powerlessness over addiction for a born-again, Spirit-filled believer? Are Christians powerless?
In themselves, Christians are powerless. In Christ, they are not but are EMPOWERED by God!
-Mark (thankful that I do not have to speak lies daily that I am powerless over any temptation to sin!)
