Step Six thought and scripture - Day 7.
Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
Having agreed with God about my sinful behavior, I now ask for His forgiveness through Christ and openly acknowledge that I am forgiven according to Scripture.
Once we accept Christ we are born into God's family. We no longer continue habitually sinning because God has adopted us into His family and changed our spiritual character!
1 John 3:9 New Living Translation (NLT)
9 Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God.
