Prov 29:1 He who is often rebuked, and hardens his neck,
Will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Many who are born in a Christian family believes in Jesus Christ from their childhood, so how and when they are joined in the new covenant? How do they receive this power of the Holy Spirit to overcome the temptations? Faith in Lord Jesus Christ is a not a question among those who are brought up in a godly way from their childhood. But even though they have faith in their lives, they do not have victory over sin or death. They are trapped in the habitual sins, which they cannot overcome even if they want to. God pulls them through His love on one side because of their faith and sin pulls them in the opposite side because of their carnality.

What will you do? Where is the power of the Holy Spirit in your life if you are in this situation? The key for everyone who is born in Christian family to receive this power of the Holy Spirit is ‘Brokenness’.  You have to allow God the Holy Spirit to break you. Break your carnality, traditions, self righteousness, desire, entertainment, worldly ambitions etc… Once you are willing to surrender your life to be broken, you will see the power of the Holy Spirit come upon you wherever you are. When God the Holy Spirit fills your cup, you will have the power from Him to overcome all temptations. You can see this victory beginning with your habitual sins. Men and women, you who are born in a Christian family, received a privilege or mercy from God the Father to know Jesus Christ in your life in an easier manner. You have the privilege to grow up in faith. If you are not willing to surrender your life to be broken for God’s kingdom, someone else from other religion will take that place and enter into His kingdom. You will be left alone in front of the gates shouting Lord! Lord! Allow yourself to be broken by the Lord; He will give you the power when you need it.
