Living a life of purity is a daily battle, an ongoing war between our flesh and the spirit of God. Working to recreate us to be like Christ. Without the power of the spirit, our will power eventually fails.
My life is a living testimony to this. Sometimes o make sure am conscious in what am doing especially what comes from my mouth. For one to be in purity, he or she has to be Christ himself because it’s impossible.
But because of the spirit’s power at work within us, our failures in the flesh can be overcome and our progress to our goal of Christlikeness is assured (II Corinthians 3:17-18).
