You Will Live

Therefore, dear brothers and sisters, you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do. For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live. 
~ Romans 8:12-13 [NLT]

The good news is that we don’t have to be chained to our sinful nature. We can make a choice to either live by God’s ways or live according to our temptations. However, the price of our sins is death. If we can exercise self-control we can overcome our sinful nature through routine, discipline, and a healthy dose of caution.
