The Christian walk is a moment-by-moment experience whereby we are given the choice whether to serve the spirit or flesh — as opposed to a ‘once and for all’ experience of victory.
Whereas conversion is an experience at a particular point in time, walking in victory is an ongoing process which requires a daily, even a moment-by-moment, dying to self.
In order to overcome the pull of the world and our flesh, and the deception of satan, we have to be strong and the only way we can achieve this is to seek God. Indeed, we have to obey the injunction, “Seek me and live” (Amos 5:4).
Who really knows how bad it is?” (Jeremiah 17:9).
