“The Christian’s Own Worst Enemy” (Romans 7:14-25a)

Pastor Dale Jaech, July 23, 2017
Part of the Funeral/Memorial Service series, preached at a Sunday Divine service

Prayer: Heavenly Father, You have given us poor sinners the way to Salvation in Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. We pray that Your Holy Spirit would strengthen us along the way to our eternal rest, that we may not be persuaded to turn aside to the left or to the right in answer to the enticements of this world and of our own sinful flesh, but keep us steadfast in true faith that we may safely reach our heavenly destination. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Romans 7:14-25a

14For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25I 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. (KJV)
