God is working in us, and through us! We are stuck here, living right next to evil. God has set us free from this evil. But it's right next door, always knocking, always tempting. It's so easy to forget the freedom we have; to live like we are still slaves to sin.
Romans 6:6 says "our old self was crucified with him". A friend of mine pointed out years ago that crucifixion is a slow and painful death. It takes time.
We are free, but it takes time to break the habits of slavery.
