Prescott writes: “For a long time I tried to gain the victory over sin, but I failed.  I have since learned the reason.  Instead of doing the part which God expects me to do, and which I can do, I was trying to do God’s part, which He does not expect me to do, and which I cannot do.  Primarily, my part is not to win the victory, but to receive the victory which has already been won for me by Jesus Christ.”
