The life that wins is an exchanged life.
If it were up to you, you would never make it; but if it is a matter of Christ, there is absolutely no problem.
The question is: who overcomes, you or Christ?
If it is Christ, then it does not matter how you by nature are, even though you may be ten times worse than others.
