If a Christian sins, it is against his will. One who is regenerate falls rather than dives into sin; he resists rather than embraces it. Any dead fish can float downstream. It takes a live one to swim against the flow. Christians still experience temptations and can sometimes fall into sin, but they are no longer slaves to sin (Romans 6:6). They have Godís Holy Spirit within them to help them say no to temptation, and to convict their conscience of wrongdoing when they do sin. The question is, when you fall into this sin, does your conscience immediately convict you and you feel godly sorrow for what you have done? Do you do everything you can to keep yourself away from temptations that may cause you to stumble? It is impossible for us as humans to turn from our sins ourselves..that is why we must first put our entire faith and trust in Christ..Repentance is a gift..Once we truly become saved we will hate our sin and want nothing to do with it so we will keep ourselves away from anything the may cause a temptation. God will forgive you for your sins if you put your faith and trust in Him and if you are truly saved you will notice yourself growing in holiness over a period of time.

We all do if we are honest about it .
Don't be too hard on yourself . You are trying your best , and that's what God sees .
Each time pray for forgiveness and grace to be free from sin .
Then stop worrying about it , and never forget that God never stops loving you .

You'll quit sinning when you are ready, not a second sooner. Your will doesn't determine when you are ready. Its when your will has failed and you have given up on your strength that God is able to work in your life.

the life of a Christian is this ( for me )

We fall, we get back up again, we fall and we get back up.
It might be like this until we leave this world.
The point is that we get back up...and not stay on the ground..
( keep struggling is my point.. )

Interesting.

My point is about surrender.

Do you have the holy spirit? He will give you the power to live a christian life. Human effort alone can't do this.

Take one day at a time and get some inspirational friends that love God by their actions. Read the bible and pray daily. Get involved in a serious church. Its a life long lifestyle and you will know God more and more. True faith is demonstrated by actions. Feel free to email me if want.

The rest of us as well. No human aside from Christ was ever free of sin in this world. You've got a lot of company.
