    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.
