Born Again, part 2

In a previous post, I quoted a convicting observation from Finally Alive. I think the following excerpt from the same book provides some great balance.

I will distance myself from perfectionism. In other words, I don’t think that the new birth makes us perfect in this life. Sin remains, and the fight of faith is a daily necessity. Some unbelievers look like better people than some believers. But that is because some pretty bad people have been born again, and the process of transformation is not always as fast as we would like.

May God give me holiness and patience.
