Just as there is a mess after the birth of a new baby, there is a mess in the life of a Christian after they are born again. The Bible talks about the struggles of sin among Christians because Christians sin! To grow in the Christian life means to confess our sins. When we do sin, Jesus Christ is our highest-powered attorney who bails us out every time. While there are still consequences for the mess that we make, we have life after birth and then afterlife.
