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.

    Jesus already paid the price for us in the cross by his blood shed for us. Jesus will no longer remember our old sin for we are already pardoned and we are now saved by his grace. Lets accept Jesus and praise and worship him more for he is worthy amen

    Romans 7:14-15 14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not but what I hate, that do I. Paul had sin, he knew how to deal with it, he would feed the new creature inside him which was the Holy Spirit. The more we read the Word of God, the lest we sin. The Word cleans good.

    Paul described himself as a miserable man in verse 24 because he wanted to do what was right, but his imperfect flesh urged him to do otherwise.
