By its own powerful and holy instinct

(J. A. James, "The Young Man from Home")

"I will give you a new heart with new and right desires,
 and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your
 stony heart of sin and give you a new, obedient heart."
     Ezekiel 36:26

The new nature, by its own powerful and holy instinct,
will turn away your feet from every forbidden place, and
every unhallowed scene. Panting after God, and thirsting
for the living God, taking pleasure in His ways, you will
shudder at the idea of being found in the haunts of vice,
or in the society of the vicious. It will be unnecessary to
forbid your going to the tavern, the theater, the house
of ill fame, the gambling-table, or horse-race. Your own
renewed and sanctified nature will be a law against
these things.
