I must kill sin, or sin will kill me--
Kill off my body, kill off my soul.
I must destroy it, kill both root and tree,
If I'm at last to be clean, to be whole.
For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
I used the photo of the sign at the Alamo since it's a site where there was an all-out war, a fight to the death. In fighting against sin, we're fighting for something greater than independence from a political power that we don't like. We're fighting for our holiness and for God's glory.
