Our Lord said, 'The prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me' (Jn 14:30).–C. H. Spurgeon, Finding Peace in Life's Storms, 10-11.
But when the Enemy comes to us, he finds not only something, but much that is compatible with his purposes. Our hearts all too readily echo the voice of Satan. When he sows his weeds, the fields of our old natures soon produce a harvest. Evil remains even in those who have been redeemed, and it infects all the faculties of their minds.
Oh, if only we could get rid of the memory of sin!
