for 2 Corinthians 7:1
thought & prayer
From Matthew Henry’s (1662–1714) Commentary on the Whole Bible, about defending ourselves . . .
To be engaged against sin is to fight in a good cause, for sin is the worst enemy both to God and man. Our spiritual warfare is both honorable and necessary; for we are only defending ourselves against that which would destroy us, if it should get the victory over us.
