Romans 7:7-25 – A Picture of Futility (mp3)


The difficulty of Romans 7 comes through in many ways. Is Paul talking about himself? Is he speaking of his life in Christ, or of the struggle he had in the law before his conversion? How could he consider himself once “alive” apart from the law, or the law dead until the command came? Today, we hope to provide some guidance for questions such as this, knowing that full confidence is likely impossible. But we of one thing we are assured: struggling against sin in our own power is futile, but through Christ we have all the victory we will ever need!

1. The law is good

2. Sin is really evil

3. Jesus is better
