Text of the Day






 The flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against

the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would— Gal. 5:17.


  Here is the great and continual battle; for although the new will asserts itself and puts the body under and compels its subjection to the new mind, nevertheless the mortal body, not being actually dead, is continually coming in contact with the world and the Adversary and is continually being stimulated by these and reinvigorated with earthly cares, ambitions, methods, strivings, conflicts and insubordination to our new will. No saint is without experiences of this kind fightings without and within. It must be a fight to the finish or the great prize for which we fight will not be gained. For although the new heart, mind and will masters the mortal body by the Lord’s grace and strength repeatedly, nevertheless until death there can be no cessation of the conflict.
