Sin is like an enemy waging guerilla warfare

05 Aug

Sin is like a defeated army in a civil war that, instead of surrendering and laying down its arms, simply fades into the countryside, from which it continues to wage a guerrilla war of harassment and sabotage against the government forces.  Sin as a reigning power is defeated in the life of the beleiver, but it will never surrender.  It will continue to harass us and seek to sabotage our Christian lives as long as we live.

Jerry Bridges, The Discipline of Grace, 106.
