The fight against sin produces godly character (Rom 5:3). So why would we want to eliminate something in our lives that can ultimately produce godliness and godly character. Why would we want it removed? Now of course, we don’t want to succumb to the temptation. We may struggle with this issue for the rest of your life—but keep pressing on. It will produce godly character. Be dependent upon Christ! Our goal is not victory in the sense of never worrying about it again. Our goal is Godly character and conformity to the image of Christ (Rom 8:29).
