O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? Romans 7:24
When we think of the Apostle Paul, we think of a holy man. We think this man was an Apostle of Christ, who was called by Jesus himself. This was a man who wrote over half of the New Testament. However look how the Apostle Paul saw himself, a wretched sinner
This is how we should view ourselves also, I know this is not what modern day Christianity preaches. However when you understand in this flesh, you are a wretched sinner, the more you understand how much you need Jesus and the amazing grace he has delivered for us
I often hear people say “Well I’m a good person” outside of Christ nobody is good. Jesus said Nobody is good except God alone (Mark 10:18) If you go on with this delusion that your good enough without Christ your setting yourself up for eternal damnation
I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. Romans 7:25
The Law of God shows us how wretched we are. The Law is like a mirror that reflects us upon Gods image. The Spirit and the Flesh are continually are war with one another. As Paul says thanks to God for our Lord Jesus Christ who redeemed us from our sin!
Become Born Again, filled with the Holy Spirit to set our minds on Christ Amen!
