Why Do I Still Struggle with My Pre-Conversion Sins? // Ask Pastor John

A video published by Desiring God on December 2nd, 2019

Every believer is already new in Christ, and yet vestiges of our old selves remain. We must fight every day to become who we already are. Why do my pre-conversion sins still haunt me? That’s the question. Here’s the email. “Hello, Pastor John! My name is Rico, and I have a question about past sins resurfacing. Before I was saved, a little over a year and a half ago, I was pretty badly addicted to drugs. I met the Lord Jesus, and literally all the desires to pursue drugs went away — until about April of this year. I’ve fallen a few times, but God has been very gracious and merciful to me in carrying me through these rough times when I’ve fallen. So I guess what I’m asking is, How does this come about? I thought I was done with that part of my life — for good! Why are my pre-conversion sin patterns coming back now?” Watch this video at our website: https://www.desiringgod.org/interviews/why-do-i-still-struggle-with-my-pre-conversion-sins Find other recent and popular Ask Pastor John episodes: https://www.desiringgod.org/ask-pastor-john
