True Christianity – Fight The Flesh

J.C. Ryleby J.C. Ryle

The principal fight of the Christian is with . . . the world, the flesh, and the devil.

These are his never-dying foes! These are the three chief enemies against whom he must wage war. Unless he gets the victory over these three, all other victories are useless and vain. If he had a nature like an angel, and were not a fallen creature–the warfare would not be so essential. But with a corrupt heart, a busy devil and an ensnaring world, he must either fight–or be lost.

He must fight the FLESH. Even after conversion, he carries within him a nature prone to evil and a heart as weak and unstable as water! That heart will never be free from imperfection in this world, and it is a miserable delusion to expect it.

“Fight the good fight of faith!” 1 Timothy 6:12
