Wesley's Notes for Romans 7:17


7:17 It is no more I that can properly be said to do it, but rather sin that dwelleth in me - That makes, as it were, another person, and tyrannizes over me.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 7:17


Ro 7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it. Not Paul as a freeman who sins, but Paul as the bond-servant of sin (see Ro 7:15), and hence it is sin who reigns over him, who sins in him, as the instrument. He describes the sinful state as one of bondage. How often a man does what he "would not"!

    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.
  • Jeremy
    Praise and glory and love to Jesus!
  • Winstone Selewende
    God tells humanity the importance of law the implications and consequencies of disobedience and the advent of grace.
