Discussion for Romans 7

  • Brianna
    Rom 7:19,20

    The apostle Paul describes the fight that he had, and that all other Christians have, and how, in spite of their best efforts, they will make mistakes, though not deliberately, insolently and willfully. The value of Christ's atonement sacrifice as applied for their sins, over which they repent and make confession, is the basis for their being declared righteous.

    We are now living under Gods grace thru the blood of Jesus. Thanks to the blood of Jesus thru him we are pardoned our sins are cleansed and we are redeemed and forgiven Jesus is the perfect obedience to our Father therefore we must also obey God's words and worship him alone. Unless if we are not born again in spirit we cant please God and our flesh remains sinful. We must be born again in spirit
