Sounds like you have it right and don't even know it. SELF EFFORT is the very nemesis to transformation - HOLY SPIRIT is the author and finisher of this. We only have to desire righteousness in our hearts,watch the salvation of God at work, and hold ground to what is gained. I know it sounds too simple, but the self-help way is too complicated, impossible! I've seen it work in myself as I am awed by the Potter's hands. One has to CEASE all efforts and seek to renew how he thinks about a sin, habit, or behavior in his life. Agreeing with the Word's that you read is the KEY to transformation, bringing about effortless change.
