Putting Sin To Death

Putting sin to death seem like an impossible task.  But J.I Packer, Theologian said it is possiblw with God's help.  By ourselves we cannot do this. 

He defines sin as "in the sense of ungodly and anti-God inclinations in the heart." So sins are things that are anti-God so this definition covers a wide range of sins.  We need God's help to eradicate sins, he said, "God is great and all powerful and ready to help while "I am weak and in need of His help especially when trying to mortify sin."

J.I Packer also said that getting rid of sin is a process and this need to be done regularly.  Although sin may not be dominant in our lives but they are in our hearts.
