The Frustration of Trying to Follow God's Laws on Our Own / Romans 7:1-8:2

November 9, 2014

If we are "good" Christians, we try hard to not sin. We try to find out what God wants us to do, and then we try really hard to follow His laws. And yet so many of us, no matter how determined, continue to fail. What's wrong? Are we missing something? The answer is probably yes, but it may surprise you to find out what it is. It doesn't matter how many of God's laws you love and memorize. It doesn't matter how much willpower you have to follow them. Sin will always result as long as we continue to try with our own power and strength (what the Bible calls our flesh). Sin is too powerful and our flesh is too weak. But the good news is that God never left us to do it alone.
