That which I do…

For that which I do I allow not:
for what I would, that do I not;
but what I hate, that do I.

If then I do that which I would not,
I consent unto the law that it is good.

Now then it is no more I that do it,
but sin that dwelleth in me.

For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,)
dwelleth no good thing:
for to will is present with me;
but how to perform that which is good I find not.

For the good that I would I do not:
but the evil which I would not, that I do.

Now if I do that I would not,
it is no more I that do it,
but sin that dwelleth in me.

Romans 7:15-20

Praying the world will read God's Word for themselves, and not rely on what someone else tells them His Word says or means.

  1. I’m thankful that God had Paul write that.
    Because those words of scripture are every Christian’s experience.
    Which makes us all the more aware that we have no works that are worthy of justification before God.

    Thank you Lord for guiding Margaret in what to post. And thank you Margaret for obeying God.

    All glory to the risen Lord Jesus Christ who loves us. 🙂
