Paul’s vision of the Christian life

J.I. Packer:

Paul is envisioning a Christian life not of constant, total defeat, but of constant moral advance…It is clear both here [Galatians 5:16-17] and wherever else Paul teaches Christian conduct that he expects the believer always to be moving forward in the formation of godly habits and the practice of active Christlikeness. Keep In Step With the Spirit, 33
