Many people believe that when they are born again, they are fully converted. You must be born again. Being born again does not mean we have been sanctified. He’s given us the power to BECOME the Sons of God, by faith. So now I have the power to overcome evil, whereas before, I didn’t even qualify. I had no tools; I had no power.
We misunderstand what happened at the cross, that it was finished by Jesus in obedience. But have we finished it by faith in our obedience?
We cannot expect to appropriate, in disobedience, what Jesus finished at the cross, in obedience.
Some people just don’t want to obey Christ; others want to, but just don’t know how. They’ve never had a point of reference on how to do it. Their families have all “done religion” a certain way, and that’s intense programming. Sometimes the programming of our long-term memory is generational.
