Chapter 6 “WHAT MORTIFICATION IS” Continued
c. Attack daily
The height of this contest is to load sin daily with all the things that are grievous, killing, and destructive to sin, which shall be mentioned later. Such a one never thinks his lust dead because it is quiet, but labors still to give it new wounds, new blows every day. So, the apostle says in Colossians 3:5, “Mortify therefore your members…” etc.
Now, while the soul is thus dealing in this condition, it certainly has the upper hand: sin is under the sword and dying.
