The Means to Defeat Evil Desires and Thoughts

August 25, 2010

    “Can you remember the means by which you’re able occasionally to defeat the evil desires and thoughts that assail you?”

    Christian said, “Yes. When I think about what I experienced at the cross, that will do it. When I look at the embroidered coat, that will do it. When I read the scroll that I carry in my coat, that will do it. And when my thoughts turn to the place where I am going, that will do it.”

    – Christian talking with Prudence at the House Beautiful, Pilgrim’s Progress, p. 77
