As Christians, when we become saved, we become reconciled to God through Christ. We get a renewing of our mind. We become dead to sin and Alive to God. We go from wanting to sin to wanting to please God.
Justification is that clean slate that God gave us. With that comes us longing to live righteously. We are justified by our Faith and Sanctified by the blood of Christ. Therefore we are to live with the world, not of it.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 NIV
