Light on The Daily Path

“But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land before you, then those whom you allow to remain will be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your side, and will cause you trouble in the land where you will be living.”

[Num 33:55 NET]

Compete well for the faith.—The weapons of our warfare are not human weapons, but are made powerful by God for tearing down strongholds. We tear down arguments and every arrogant obstacle … and we take every thought captive to make it obey Christ.

So then, brothers and sisters, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh (for if you live according to the flesh, you will die), but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body you will live.

For the flesh has desires that are opposed to the Spirit, and the Spirit has desires that are opposed to the flesh, for these are in opposition to each other, so that you cannot do what you want.—But I see a different law in my members waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that is in my members.—In all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us!

[1 Tim 6:12, 2 Cor 10:4-5, Rom 8:12-13, Gal 5:17, Rom 7:23, Rom 8:37]
