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.

    I love the father and his only begotten son. Christ Jesus word is true.

    We died to sin, its no longer I that liveth, but Christ that liveth in me. We died with Christ,the old body of sin has been destroyed. Now if we sin, its not us, but sin that lives in the flesh. THEN if its not us, we are not to be blamed.Cant blame a dead man..There is therefore no condemnation..Thats why I John 1:9 means this: to become saved, you have to confess homo-logeo , to say the same thing as God, that we are sinners, then believe Jesus took our sins in his body on the cross and died for them..Then we receive His righteousness as a gift..He only died once for your sins. don't have to repeat I John 1 9, thats to nail Him on the cross again..

    With out the Lord we are weak souls, therefor we need Jesus for strength to defeat evil! Other wise without Jesus we are all evildoers and will not be excepted in to paradise.

    One does not know the immense depth of sin till they have come to the truth in Jesus Christ our Lord. By the power of His working Holy Spirit in the believer sin can be conquered and cleansed by the blood of the lamb. Till that knowledge is expressed on the inner man by Gods Holy Spirit Romans 6:23 tells us "for the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal through Jesus Christ our Lord." Paul was gifted by Gods Holy Spirit on that road to Damascus making him to know the sin that abide within and the Waring of his mind and the flesh was evident in all his teachings. Thank you Jesus for His immense love He gave of Himself on the cross so that we may live likewise. PRAISE JESUS!!!
  • Isaac Ajao
    Sin and Satan are far powerful than humans. We need a more supernatural power to over these two before we can be like Jesus who went about doing good. Since Jesus overcame we will overcome.
