    The grace “through faith” (Eph 2:8) cannot be altered concerning its place within the believer (Rom 11:29), but concerning the oppression (dominance) from the sin nature, the believer can live under its effects, but only unnecessarily so. It is only a matter of time until this opposition (Rom 7) is finally understood, while all along it is being addressed by the Spirit of God (Gal 5:17), and from which every single believer, through the progression of “from glory to glory” (2 Cor 3:18; Rom 8:29) will inevitably be liberated, in that they will learn not to “allow” the hardness of this life to “trouble” them (John 14:1, 27).

    And thus the lesson of “enduring” of all “hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ” (2 Tim 2:3) eventually becomes as practical as knowing (believing, trusting) that God uses everything (includes everything encountered) “for good to those who love Him” (Rom 8:28).
