We must realize that God chose us, we did not choose Him. Allow Him through Christ, to transform you. Ephesians 4:23-24 Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God-truly righteous and holy. As a new believe one mistake that we make is to try and stop everything. There are things you can stop on your own and there are those that yo must allow Him to finish the work He started. Anything you use your effort on will soon drain you. Serving God should be a delight. Matthew 11:29-30 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” God does not want to burden you with too much change, those things will slowly be shaken off. This is for the glory to go back to God elst you start boasting to others. If you know that its’s God you will hold dear to salvation you received and appreciate the grace. Romans 11:5-6 So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.
