"And I will put my spirit within you, and
cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye
shall keep my judgments, and do them"
(Ezekiel 36:27).

Notice our opening verse again; the Lord
didn't say, "I will put my spirit within you
and you'll struggle to please me"; no! Rather, He said, "...I will put my spirit within you and cause you to walk in my statutes...." There's a force in you, an ability or nature that compels you to do what's right and required of God as a way of life; it's called righteousness. Being born again , you've been called to express and manifest the righteousness of God. That's Christianity. We don't struggle to do right. We're born with the new nature of God to live right.

Some have never really understood the doctrine of righteousness as revealed in God's Word, and that's the reason they still struggle with sin. They don't understand righteousness as a nature, the divine element that causes us to act, talk and live right.

You can decide you're not going to do something that's wrong and stand your ground, because sin has no power over you. This is possible because God already made you righteous. Living right is the product of righteousness. The ability to do the right things can only flow naturally from a righteous spirit.

Some of your actions may still be imperfect, but that doesn't in any way negate your nature as the righteousness of God in Christ. What you need is to
keep growing and increasing in the knowledge of God. Keep learning and acting on God's Word, and your life and actions will be in sync with His righteousness.

There're those who say it's human nature to do wrong; "to err is human," they'd say. That's the reason your human nature was replaced with the nature of righteousness when you were born again.(Ref: READ 'You are not a natural man) The life inside you now is not the human life that's subject to sin; it's the God-life, and it's sin-proof "For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.(Romans 6:14).

You're no longer subject to the limitations and imperfections of the human nature. You're now a partaker of the divine nature, and have put on the new man, 'which is renewed in knowledge after the image of God that
created you'(Colossians 3:10).
Live in this light-in the consciousness that you have the nature of God in you to do right, and live righteously unto God. Hallelujah!
