In our struggle against sin, in our fight for holiness, let us never forget the God-for-us-ness of the gospel that affirms, renews, empowers, and motivates:

“The Christian life on earth is a conflict with [indwelling] sin. And therein is the dreadfulness of our situation on earth displayed. But we are not left to fight the battle alone. The Christian life is a conflict of God — not of us — with sin. And therein is the joy and glory of our situation on earth manifested. As sinners we are in terrible plight. As the servants of God, fighting His battle, we are in glorious case.”

— B. B. Warfield, Faith and Life
