    There are five I's in verse 20 Is there a lesson here ? Are there any thoughts or comments

    on this passage?

    If you read all of Romans 7, you'll see the total of count of "I"s is much more.

    Paul called himself "chief of sinners" somewhere else.

    I think many people feel that way too. But then we roll into Romans 8: "there is now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus...."

    It's not What We Did that's impressive: it's what Jesus did that was impressive!

    Amen?

  • Chris - in Reply on Galatians 2
    I'm sorry, I don't read anymore in that Scripture, but read it as given. Paul often spoke of his life, before salvation & with Christ now, & it seems to me that the point he wanted to get across to his readers, was that the "life that he now lives" was formerly a life that was totally against & offensive to God, in spite of all his pharisaical knowledge & piety.

    But now, he "counted all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord" ( Philippians 3:8) as a further emphasis that he, who was once a somebody, became a nobody as far as man was concerned, but now a precious witness to the Grace of God, to be mightily used by God. With all this in mind, his abundant use of personal pronouns here & elsewhere, speak of his vibrant testimony to the Churches & to us of what God can do in a life once given over to religion & self-righteousness.
