For Peter’s second session at Muskoka Bible Centre’s Men’s Breakaway conference, Peter provides Biblical principles to overcome sin. Our primary zeal should be to honour God.
11:24 What are we fighting against? We are not fighting against sin, but we are fighting to “see the beauty and glory of Christ more clearly so that our souls may find satisfaction in him”
11:27 We are in a war; so we need to have war-like mentality. The war is internal (sinful flesh) and external: the world and the devil.
In North America, Satan puts people to sleep to get the people of God. Relax on the couch. “You are not in a spiritual war.” But we are in a war until Christ returns.
1 Pet 2:11: “Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.”
