In Ephesians, Paul warns the Redeemed not to walk like unbelievers… ”

“They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity.” Ephesians 4:18-19 (ESV)

Then farther down in verse 27 he says “…and give no opportunity to the devil.”

The fight of a believer is not against flesh and blood, it’s against the spiritual realm that seeks to kill us, and we have to fight with everything that is in us…not setting aside the truth of Scripture, but following it closely, and obeying it even if it doesn’t make us happy right now. Submit, repent and obey…it’s for your survival. Be soft to the Lord, and live.
