Wesley's Notes for Romans 7:23


7:23 But I see another law in my members - Another inward constraining power of evil inclinations and bodily appetites. Warring against the law of my mind - The dictate of my mind, which delights in the law of God. And captivating me - In spite of all my resistance


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.

    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.
