Psalm 51:10 "Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me"
A sinful husband or wife will naturally exhibit unwholesome character in a marriage. The best a sinful husband or wife can offer in marriage will still be defiled. Who can bring the clean out of the unclean?
Common testimony is, “I know my husband or wife is like this. Can a leopard change its spot?” There is no seminar on character that can reform a sinful man or woman. It is like taking a charcoal and trying to chop it with the hope of seeing white. You will continue chopping until the whole charcoal (black coal) is grounded into powder. That is how the life of a sinful man or woman is. No human effort can change his character. No seminar lecture can change him. Let him read all the motivational and character transformation books in the world, he will still remain with his filth and uncleanliness. The good news is that, that is not the end of the matter – there is hope.
God has a better offer. He has no business with stone or that which is of no value. He is a good God who gives good things to His children. He offers a brand new life in Christ Jesus. A life that is undefiled and without blemish. He offers a life that replicates His very being and character. It is a spiritual regeneration that leads to total transformation from being a sinning husband to a saintly husband the wife will be proud of.
2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
The Holy Spirit is the principal agent of regeneration.
John 3:3-6 - "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit."
