Resist and oppose strongly against the first risings of the flesh, and the tickling and pleasing motions of sin that doth easily beset, when it doth entice us away from God, or do any thing that is unseemly, and contrary unto the duty of our heavenly calling. O remember we are not debtors to the flesh (Rom. 8:20). Thou art tied to the Lord by all obligations and indulgences, therefore break the force of sin by a serious resistance; check it, and let thy soul rise up in indignation against it. My business is not to pleasure the flesh, but the please the Lord.

Thomas Manton, 1662
