Wesley's Notes for Romans 7:23

People's Bible Notes for Romans 7:23


Ro 7:23 But I see another law in my members. One law of our being is the approval of righteousness; another is the inclination of the flesh to do evil. This law wars against the law of [the] mind, the conscience and will, and brings it into captivity. It prevails. Hence, unregenerate man is a captive. There is a struggle in the nature of man; of the "inward Man" (Ro 7:22), with the flesh, with the result of captivity of the soul.

    I thank God he understands our struggles and given us a way of escape , if we accept was he has given for us

    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.

    God tells humanity the importance of law the implications and consequencies of disobedience and the advent of grace.
  • Lilian
    We are now living under Gods grace thru the blood of Jesus. Thanks to the blood of Jesus thru him we are pardoned our sins are cleansed and we are redeemed and forgiven Jesus is the perfect obedience to our Father therefore we must also obey God's words and worship him alone. Unless if we are not born again in spirit we cant please God and our flesh remains sinful. We must be born again in spirit
