God’s Spirit and Man’s Spirit

“God’s Holy Spirit and man’s sin cannot live together peacefully; they may both be in the same heart, but they cannot both reign there, nor can they both be quiet there; for ‘the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature;’ they cannot rest, instead there will be a perpetual warring in the soul, so that the Christian will have to cry out, ‘What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?’ But in due time— the Spirit will drive out all sin, and will present us blameless before the throne of his Majesty with great joy.”

—Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)
