Now because this work [of sanctification] is but inchoate and imperfect, and in part only transacted in this World; and there are remainders of sin in this life in the best of Saints; and because Grace and Corruption are vigorous, active, operative Principles, dwelling so near together, under the same Roof, in the same Soul, yea in the very same Faculties: there must needs arise a sharp and severe War in the Soul between these two Neighbouring and Opposite Natures, the particular events and successes whereof are various and uncertain; but the Victory is infallibly determined in the issue on the side of Grace. Grace indeed is greatly beset, hardly bestead, much encumbered and almost overthrown at some reasons: but it will certainly eluctari, wrestle and recover itself out of all the dangers that threaten it.

For the reference, see Urian Oakes on the triumph of grace in the battle for sanctification.
