Brother, this was absolutely a blessing to read!
Our hearts ARE perfectly wicked but praise the Lord that the Saviour took our penalty because we surely deserve it! I loved this:
This does not mean that we will never sin or even come to a point in this life were we never sin. It does mean that we stop being bound to living in sinful life styles or continuing in sins we were once enslaved to. It is a daily growing experience, a separation that we cannot expect overnight, but an ongoing commitment and daily dedication to become more like our Savior. The Spirit of Christ will do the changing, but we have to work and allow him to do it.
