The sin or base nature is in every human being which can cause a fully blown sin, an act of evil or darkness, something which displeases God. But God can give us the power to overcome.
It’s the sin nature in us that can cause us to act out its propensities, in whatever form.
The sin nature is inherited through the Fall. The sin nature is a base nature which has come to everyone.
But God can help subdue the sin in us when we receive the power of God in our lives. God’s power can anchor the soul away from sin, but we will always have a nature prone to wrong while on earth. God’s power can mute it, yet it can raise its ugly head from time to time. We can choose to ask for God’s power to help us in those times.
With God’s power, we may get strong victories in some areas. However, we may fail in others.
We are better off with the availability of God’s power in our lives than without it. Ask God to help. There’s is always hope with God’s power, that one can gain victory in some area that one isn’t winning in.
Having God’s power in one’s life isn’t the end of a struggle. But God’s power is the great spiritual resource in overcoming evil and sin and that power is in the cross.
