    Ray; Do you think the Holy Spirit is going to use a dirty vessel to pour the Living Water through? PAUL DID NOT STILL HAVE A PROBLEM WITH SIN! "Whom the Son sets free is REALLY free." Reality is "Sin SHALL NO LONGER HAVE DOMINION OVER YOU." After you have been set free and released from jail, you're no longer in jail! Why would anyone think they're still locked up, after they've been released?

    John 5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. Jesus told the man that had infirmity 38 years on the bed to rise up sin no more. The man sin was hurting him. Romans 7:20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. Paul still had a problem with sin.
