Andrew Toogood speaking.
Many of us live in fear of sin, believing we need to control it or battle against it. However, we need a new view of sin to understand that we are the righteousness of Christ, and it is His job to free us with grace and mercy. Sin is our nature, not our actions, and Christ came to give us a new nature, transforming us from the inside out.
Grace frees us, not to live in sin, but to have our core self regenerated, to make good choices to live in holiness, no longer as slaves to that sin.
