“When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.” Acts 3:26  

God turns us from our wicked ways. We can’t do this ourselves. God pours out his Spirit upon us and he enables and empowers us. When we try to live a godly life without God’s Spirit we will fail. All our best intentions are not enough as Paul discovered (Romans 7:15-25). However, “thanks be to God who delivers” us from the experience of trying harder to do the right thing but never truly succeeding.
