Under Gods Command

Romans 7:15 I do not understand what I do, For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.   

This is more than the cry of one desperate man-it describes the experience of any Christian struggling against sin or trying to please God by keeping rules and laws without the Spirit’s help.  We must never underestimate the power of sin.

Lets Bring it Home: We must never attempt to fight it in our own strength. Satan is a crafty tempter, and we have an amazing ability to make excuses. Instead of trying to overcome sin with human willpower, we must take hold of the tremendous power of Christ that is available to us.  This is God’s provision for victory over sin, he sends the Holy Spirit to live inside us and give us power.  And when we fall, he lovingly reaches out to help us up.
