Sermon on Romans 7 – July 3, 2017
In the wake of Paul’s proclamation of God’s gracious acceptance, those familiar with God’s Word can ask, “What’s the law go to do with it, then?” In Romans 7, Paul reveals that while the law is God’s good gift to us, because of our rebellious nature and self-centeredness, we turn it into a curse. “I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.”(Romans 7:15) What are we to do then? This sermon wrestles with that question.
