Key verse

 

(Romans 8:13) For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

 

Thesis

 

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.

 


Notes

 

“… every lust tends unto [deeds]; though it do but conceive and prove abortive, it aims to bring forth a perfect sin.”

 

 

a principle (the life of the Spirit) contrary to it (the flesh) and destructive of it is planted in our hearts

 


Conclusion

 

the mortification of indwelling sin remaining in our mortal bodies,

that it may not have life and power to bring forth the works or deeds of the flesh

is the constant duty of believers.
