The apostle Paul became one of the greatest Christians that ever lived (see On The Road To Damascus), and yet he struggled endlessly with sin -
"When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law [see The Ten Commandments], but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God - through Jesus Christ our Lord!" (Romans 7:21-25)
Paul was not yet completely free. Neither are any of us - yet.
The good news is that sin, that is, Satan, will soon have had his day (see The Lame Duck). He will be defeated and imprisoned forever (Revelation 20:2-3,10). And then, when our change comes, we will be truly free in ways that we cannot now imagine. See Why Were You Born?
