"It is true, great ground is obtained when the work is vigorously and constantly carried on; sin is much weakened, so that the soul presseth forwards towards perfection: but yet the work must be endless; I mean, whilst we are in the world. If we give over, we shall quickly see this enemy exerting itself with new strength and vigour."
John Owen, "The Nature, Power, Deceit, and Prevalency of the Remainders of Indwelling Sin in Believers". The Works of John Owen, Volume VI. The Banner of Truth Trust: Carlisle, PA. (1668) 2000. p.175.
