The Need to Be Radical in our Fight Against Sin!

But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.  Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. (1Tim 6:11-12)
Here is a short video on the need to radically fight against our sin.  It is good, but it would be great if he connected it to faith.  To give him the benefit of the doubt, he may have talked about faith on either side of this clip.  Too often those communicating truth in the church do not connect our actions with faith in Christ so they end up teaching moralism.  The result is that you have sincere followers of Christ struggling against sin in their own strength.  The battle against sin waged in our own moral power, against the power of sin is a disheartening and losing battle!
