This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

The Scriptures —Study 13 — Romans 7:7-25
Study 13 From The Book of Romans Is: Romans 7:7-25
Man’s true life under the law frustrated and
spoiled by sin.
1.Verses 7-13. To speak about
passions being aroused by the law might suggest that the law itself is
sinful. What evidence does Paul give in
theses verses to show that the law is holy and good, and yet (a) reveals sin;
(b) provokes sin; (c) results in death?
What does it thus bring to light concerning the character of sin?
2.Verses . Which is the stronger force in a man’s
life, the law or sin? What, then is the inevitable result of life under the
law, even as its best?
In verses 14-25 the apostle expands what he means by ‘the old written
code’ (7:6). The laws of God commands
from without, but sin as a power within compels obedience to its own dictates.
Two things are needed; (a) deliverance from the condemnation which the law of
God pronounce, and (b) a power within greater than that of sin to enable us to
do God’s will. Both are provided in Christ, as Paul shows in chapter 8,
expounding the meaning of his words ‘the new life of the Spirit’ (7:6).
