Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my
flesh; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not.
the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please.

just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling;
“Take heed, keep on the alert; for you do not know when the appointed time will come.
