Take a journey with one of the most extraordinary and impactful preachers in history: the apostle Paul
Grace-Powered Living | A Study of the Book of Romans
From where I sit as a pastor, it seems to me that an increasing number of people are suffering more heartache and struggle than ever before. Hardly a week goes by that I don’t hear news of a marriage that is in trouble — a heart-breaking addiction — or see discord unraveling relationships before my eyes.
In Romans 7, the greatest evangelist and theologian the world has ever known — the apostle Paul — allows us to see his personal struggle with sin. And he doesn’t mince words!
Paul says, “For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate” (verse 15). I really appreciate the paraphrase from the New Living Translation. “No matter which way I turn, I can’t make myself do right. I want to, but I can’t. When I want to do good, I don’t; and when I try not to do wrong, I do it anyway.”
Every time I read that I feel like Paul has “sneaked a peek” at my spiritual journal! That’s exactly how I feel. I bet it’s how you feel sometimes, too. There is a civil war that rages inside every believer between the desires of God and the pull of our old sin nature.
What is the remedy for our struggle? Let me be frank: there is no secret formula, spiritual therapy, or “other worldly” experience with the Holy Spirit that will ever rid you of sinful desires. The Christian life is a struggle. It always has been; it always will be. But here’s the good news: the struggle is winnable.
Today, I want to offer you, your family, and your loved ones the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of one of the most extraordinary and impactful preachers in history: the apostle Paul.
