Paul addresses the Christian's battle with indwelling sin.
The Law, Indwelling Sin
We were wandering in the wilderness of sin, but God led us into the promised land of salvation.
There is an enemy to drive out before we can take possession
The enemy is indwelling sin or the old nature
God's Concern, God's Favor, Sin Nature, Indwelling Sin
Paul desperately wants to be delivered from the influence of indwelling sin. He struggles, as do we all, with his corrupt nature. Through Christ we overcome and make progress...yet the more we grow, the more in touch we are with our faults.
Spiritual Progress, Indwelling Sin
It is time for God's people to declare that we are drawing a line in the sand. We will not choose to go back to Egypt. We will continue to advance to the Promised Land!
Sin, Egypt, Promised Land, Indwelling Sin, Line In The Sand
