As Christians, we are well educated on the fact that sin is wrong. Some of us are taught that we shouldn’t keep on sinning without being told how to stop. And others of us have been taught that we might as well keep on sinning since there is nothing to be done to stop the sinful propensity. Either option leaves us vulnerable to the powers of sin and thusly susceptible to a life of great discouragement and defeat. However, there is yet one more thing to be taught: the “one-two punch” that not only knocks sin out but also trains us in our God-empowered position to clobber sin in the teeth if and when it ever rises back up off the mat to take a swing at us again.
