by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Peter 1:4

Through the power of God, we have received great and precious promises, that have made us partakers in God‘s divine nature. Because of the nature of God in our spirits, we have power to live above the corruption and evil prevalent in the world. 

The Scripture reveals that this corruption in the world is through lust, sinful passions, and evil desires. This means that every wrong and corrupt practice on earth is a product of the sinful and evil desires in the hearts and minds of people. This means that a man who is born again, has a choice to make. 

To rid his heart of the lusts of this world , So as to live above the ordinances of a corrupt world, or to ignore his heart, and stand vulnerable to the ordinances of the corrupt world. Because a man can only be corrupted by the sinful world if there are passions or desires within him for such evil. But if there are no such desires within a person, no matter how corrupt the outside is, he cannot be influenced by it. 

The unsaved man, cannot rid himself of lust, because it takes Godspower to do so. But the born again man can totally do so, by renewing his mind through the word of God. Thus what determines where the born again man stands is not what is outside or around him, but the condition of his inside. We are wisely instructed to guard our hearts with all diligence and ensure we keep ourselves from carnal passions, so that we will walk in the spirit as we are born into the spirit. You are blessed.
