The True Holy War

October 22, 2010

“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1).

“For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to [“in conflict with,” NIV] each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do” (Galatians 5:17).

“A true Christian is one who has not only peace of conscience, but war within.  He may be known by his warfare as well as by his peace.”


J.C. Ryle, in Faithfulness and Holiness (ed. J. I. Packer). p. 125.
