Why is this a battle, and how can Paul’s words point us to the way out of what could be a never-ending struggle?

Galatians 5:16-18

Presented at the 2008 Calvin Symposium on Worship

Also see Willard's book The Divine Conspiracy: Rediscovering Our Hidden Life In God (HarperOne, 1998).

In The Divine Conspiracy, Willard gracefully weaves biblical teaching, popular culture, science, scholarship, and spiritual practice into a tour de force that shows the necessity of profound changes in how we view our lives and faith.
