We may take comfort about our souls if we know anything of an inward fight and conflict. It is the invariable companion of genuine Christian holiness. It is not everything, I am well aware, but it is something. Do we find in our heart of hearts a spiritual struggle? Do we feel anything of the flesh lusting against the spirit and the spirit against the flesh, so that we cannot do the things we would? (Gal. 5:17)….Well, let us thank God for it! It is a good sign. It is strongly probable evidence of the great work of sanctification….Anything is better than apathy, stagnation, deadness, and indifference.
