Romans 7:14-25 

Romans 7:14-25 | 11/08/2013 | Tim Baldwin

Tim Baldwin preaching on Romans 7:14-25 Change is hard! Paul acknowledges this in this passage. Christians are no longer slaves to sin, but live with word">the presence of sin. Is Paul reflecting on his present state or at his state before conversion? Evidence for Present State - tense of word">the sentences - v8 desire to obey word">the law - v22 delight in Gods law - v25 thanks to God for delivering Jesus This can lead to complacency in dealing with sin. Evidence for Paul referring to his state before conversion - Consistency with Roms 6:6 - v17 sin living in me alive and kicking - v18 good itself doesn't dwell in me - v21 law still at work in him - v23 a prisoner to word">the law of sin - v25 slave to word">the law of sin - Roms 8:2 we are set free from word">the law of sin - Context of Rom 7 is Paul talking primarily to Jews who knew word">the law - v7 reflecting back to word">the time before word">the law (which must be pre-Moses) Gal 5:17 Paul acknowledges Christians struggle with sin. Key message of word">the passage is that life under word">the law is frustrating. Law refers here to word">the 10 commandments and word">the expanded version of laws in word">the first 5 books of word">the Bible. Rom 2:12-15 says that even Gentiles have moral law in word">their conscious. Law brings out sin in us, and helps us see sin. Sin is word">the problem, so what is word">the solution? More laws? No, word">the solution for sin is to let word">the Law humble us, so that we see our need for a saviour! v 25 - word">the answer is Jesus, his righteousness can be credited to us, making us right with God.
