Progress In Holiness

Time for action!  Sometimes (maybe most of the time!) our Christian walk feels more like a fight or struggle, and indeed that is what it is because of sin that wars against us.  Paul urged the Ephesians to stand firm in the full armor of God, and John Owen gives a brief and vivid illustration of this warfare in The Mortification of Sin:
Let not man think he makes any progress in holiness, who walks not over the necks of his lusts.  He, who doth not kill sin in his way, takes no steps towards his journey's end.
