God's power - how does it work within Christians? Can it truly bring people closer to their loving Father-truly help them grow and make them holy? "Growth in the Christian life and victory over sin are impossible," states Neil Anderson-unless believers understand what Scripture declares: They really are new people, reborn in the Spirit, whose deepest desires are now directed toward God. When Christians grasp this truth, it unleashes God's power within them:
* They understand that "sin" is what they sometimes do-not who they are
* They intimately experience God as their loving, accepting Father, not as a heavenly scorekeeper
* Joy and contentment replace discouragement and cynicism
