"For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit." Romans 8:5
This doesn't mean we will be perfect. We will sin and falter and need the grace and mercy of God to forgive us and cover us every day. What is new is that instead of seeking His mercy while focusing on brokenness, we are seeking His mercy while pursuing being whole.
"In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory." Ephesians 1:13-14
