ROMANS Our Victory: Sanctification Through Jesus – A Great Struggle

4.10.16 AUDIO AND SLIDE TRANSITIONS – Romans 7:14-25 paints a vivid picture of a struggle against sin. Paul speaks from experience. But is he referring to his struggle as a religious Jew, or as a believer in Jesus? In this sermon, we examine the context of this passage and the language God inspired Paul to use in order to answer this question. Does this passage give the believer an excuse? “See, I can’t help sinning.” Or does it provide a vivid comparison of the one “sold into sin’s power” (Romans 7:14) before coming to Jesus and one who now follows Him and is free to “walk by the Spirit” (Gal. 5:16)?
