Our physical existence in time still serves the law of sin, or our disordered human nature. The fall has some claim over us in this world, in that we have not yet completely outgrown it. The disorder of the fall is not cancelled overnight; you don’t get out of bed after life and death surgery and walk like a healthy man the first day. You are weak and you are frail; but with each day, if there is life in you, you begin to grow in strength, and you become stronger because now the problem has been removed.
