People's Bible Notes for Romans 7:22


Ro 7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man. The inner man, the better nature, our spiritual being, approves of and delights in the law of God. This is the part of our being that "wills to do good", spoken of in Ro 7:21, but is overcome by evil.

    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

    Please don't misunderstand me. I have not arrived yet either just like you... and am not trying to compete with any other brother in Christ. I just have a burden to share some key items that have helped me along the way. Look to Christ and His precious written Word brothers and sisters. He will lead you and guide you into His truth! Bless Him! Bless Him!

    Verse 18 is key. The desire to live righteously comes from the new nature which is pure but powerless. Where then does the power to overcome come from? The power comes from the Holy Spirit. He is the power. John 15 tells us to abide in the Vine. This is not done in our own strength. We learn dependence on Him through many trials. We don't arrive but we do grow.
