I The Christian life is a fight 

1 Tim. 6

      11      But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.

      12      Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life,

Ephesians 6

      10      Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

      11      Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

      12      For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Rom. 7

Gal. 5

      16      I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

      17      For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.

Rom. 8

      13      For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

1 John 2:15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

Rom. 12:2       And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Rev. 19

      11      Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.

      12      His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.

      13      He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.

      14      And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.

2 Cor. 10

         3      For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.

         4      For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,

         5      casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
