Romans 8:12-17 – The Difficulty of Holiness (mp3)
While we have seen that Romans 7 was not meant to imply the struggle that Christians have with sin, we are right to insist that there is indeed a struggle. If anyone was to gain the implication from Paul’s work that the fight with sin is over because of what Christ has done, they are sorely mistaken. Paul knows the battle ahead for all Christians, one of toil and hardship as they battle the sin in their bodies. Today, he not only implores us to do all we can to pursue holiness, he also gives us the ammunition we need to fight that good fight.
1. Kill your sin
2. Call upon the Father
3. Consider your inheritance
