Doing the right thing is sometimes hard. We all know right from wrong, but sometimes, for various reasons, doing the wrong thing is just easier. In Romans 7:15 even Paul says, I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. Without the Holy Spirit working in us, sometimes it is nearly impossible to force ourselves to do the right thing. But through obedience and trust, the Holy Spirit works in us to do the right thing.
