Fulfilling the potential

So I am saying that the problem of sin in Christians can never be dealt with thoroughly until we recognize that behind the acts of sins lies the disposition to sin, and until we allow the Holy Spirit who is in us to fulfill the potential of our conversion, crucifying that disposition in order to fill us with himself. When this happens, the ancient command of God to Abraham in Genesis 17:1, “Walk before me and be perfect,” will become a reality in Abraham’s children.— Called to be Holy, page 181
