We consider our part in sanctification - what we need to do to cooperate with the Lord so that we will grow in our love, holiness, and spiritual strength. There is a spiritual battle going on in our souls, but if we walk by the Spirit and not according to our flesh, we will not carry out the desires of our flesh and we will be able to do what’s right.

We see two things: 

  • First, that we are in a spiritual battle, and 
  • Second, what we can do to win this battle.

We are challenged to seek to love the Lord with all of our heart, mind, soul, and strength. If we do, we will not be an easy target for our enemies; but will likely escape the snares they have laid out to destroy us.
