Inner Conflict - Lesson 6 - Uncontrolled Doing
YOU HAVE THE PROOF
The fact that Satan hurls his fiery darts at you proves you have been translated into the kingdom of God's son (Col. 1:13). The fact that temptation is against your renewed will further confirms that you have been justified from our sins. It is unfortunate that contemporary religion has made too little of the human will. There are whole bodies of theology that view salvation and sanctification as Deity overriding the human will. Doctrines like unconditional election, being slain in the Holy Spirit, and once saved always saved, are gross misrepresentations of our situation. They view people as basically unchanged by redemption, which requires Divine intrusion. Little wonder that a strong confidence in God is so little known the churches of our day. When Paul says, "To will is present with me," he is stating a marvelous evidence of God's grace!
