1 Peter 1:14 says, "Don't be conformed to the former lusts." When you give into sin, you become conformed to it. If you submit to something that's low, you'll become low. Submit to something higher and you'll become higher. You become what you give in to. If you give in to anger, you become an angry person. Give in to fear and you become fearful. But the good news is the other side. Give into righteousness and you'll be conformed to righteousness. Giving in to holiness, starts you becoming holy. If you start giving in to integrity, you'll become that. If you start giving into prayer and worship, you'll become a person of prayer and worship. You become what you give in to. Do you want to become something higher than what you are--holy and more wonderful? Then start giving in to it. To become more like Messiah, start giving in to Messiah. Don't be conformed to the former lust, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, by His Spirit. Give in to Him. Soon enough and sure enough, you'll end up being conformed to His image.
From Message #518 - Gird Your Mind for Action
Stop giving into that temptation. But give in to the leading and impulse of God's Spirit.
