I talk a lot about the Sin Management approach to the Christian life. Actually, I talk a lot against the Sin Management approach. This approach says that I am responsible to manage and control the sin in my life. It sounds responsible; it sounds logical; and it is desirable because it allows me to retain a sense of control. But it doesn’t work consistently. The Grace/Spirit Life approach says that God alone has the power to give me a new nature, a new heart and a new mind. I am to depend upon His power alone for victory over sin. And there is one other none too subtle difference. The Grace/Spirit Life approach does work.
