How would you like to fight an enemy who, just as you have him on the ropes, always evades the final blow? An enemy who hides just out of reach, lulling you into a fall sense of security, until he drops from nowhere onto your back?
That’s the advantage of indwelling sin—it lurks in an unsearchable fortress where you can’t get to it. But if God has redeemed us from sin—and given us his Holy Spirit to sanctify us and give us strength against sin—why do we go on sinning?
Drawing from two masterful works by English theologian John Owen, Kris Lundgaard takes aim at the enemy within. He shares his discovery of hope, renewed love for Christ, an approach to holiness by faith in him.
A note from the blogger:
This book presents an incredible understanding of indwelling sin. If you want to understand how sin intentionally seeks to kill, steal, and destroy, this book is a great place to start. Lundgaard systematically explains what sin is, how it works, what it seeks to do, and how to constantly fight against the sin within. I would highly recommend this as a valuable resource for the believer regardless of maturity.
