Many believers are stagnated in their Christian growth, because they do not understand the constitution of their natures. Evil always seems as if it is something extrinsic to us over which we have no control. According to Scripture, this is not so. The reality is that evil or sin has access to us because it is intrinsic to our natures. Yet, our intrinsic inclination towards evil can be overcome, if we are willing to thoroughly understand and engage our sinful proclivities, while reclining the full wait of our existence upon Christ.
