Week 2 of "Kill or Be Killed" is coming! #kobkfc

When men are troubled with the guilt of a sin that has prevailed over them, they promise themselves and God that they will sin thus no more, but they seek to accomplish their own victory. They watch over themselves and pray for a short season until the pain of conviction waxes cold and the sense of sin wear off. Mortification then also goes out the door, and sin returns to its former dominion.
These ways are not sufficient.

There is no self-endeavor that can accomplish mortification. Almighty energy is necessary for its accomplishment.

-John Owen, "Mortification of Sin", Banner of Truth Trust, Chapter 3 [16-17]
