I have been reading a good book, “Overcoming Sin and Temptation” which is a compilation of three works by John Owen edited by Kelly Kapic and Justin Taylor.
Here is a section I read to my family yesterday.
"The choicest believers, who are assuredly freed from the condemning power of sin, ought yet to make it their business all their days to mortify the indwelling power of sin. So the apostle, “mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth.” (Col. 3:5). To whom does he speak? Such as were “risen with Christ’ (v.1); such as were “dead” with him (v3); such as whose life Christ was and who should “appear with him in glory” (v4)
Do you mortify;
Do you make it your daily work;
Be always at it while you live;
Cease not a day from this work;
Be killing sin or it will be killing you." p50
