finish the work in me. How can I be free from this? You're not alone in the

struggle against the flesh. In fact before we become Christians we are

infected in our flesh, our will, our intellect, our emotions, our bodies we are

infected with sin. Sin does damage to our fleshly nature from the time we're born

several times and you will sense in the Apostle Paul again the greatest
