Being Thankful For All We Have
What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.
Romans 7:24-26 NIV
We can all say what Paul has said above.
What a wretched man I am!
The "law at work in the members of my body"
Is the sin deep within us.
It refers to everything within us that is more loyal to our old way of selfish living than to God.
This struggle with sin was as real for Paul as it is to us.
"above"quoted from my notes in my Bible"
We all sin, that's just the way we are..Paul is miserable in this verse, he knows his sin..
But he also recognizes The Lord Jesus.
He knows he is forgiven because he as been through so much in his life.
The pain he felt as he cried out to the Lord was real.
It is real for us to, we live life as we go about our day, we need to talk to Jesus as we live.
His strength in us is powerful.
Be thankful for all He has done, recognize the Cross..
