When I consider Romans 7, two concepts stand out that seem to sum up the chapter as a whole:
Rom 7:4
4) Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
Rom 7:19
19) For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
My question to you: Are you still experiencing Romans 7:19? Do you still find yourself struggling to overcome the sin nature and doing things contrary to God’s perfect will?
The remedy, of course, is found in Jesus Christ because He is the One who points us to His Father. It is the spirit of the Father that creates the action needed to overcome.
What is spoken of in Romans 8:3, condemning sin in the flesh, is further explained in Romans 8:13. By means of God’s truth, we put to death the deeds of the body. The truth of God’s glory is to be more specific.
Exo 34:5-7
5) And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.
6) And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,
7) Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting (attending to) the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
Realize, God needs to govern the conscience, symbolized in Revelation as Him sitting on the throne. Also, take to heart the following scripture:
1Sa 2:8
8) He raises up the poor out of the dust, and lifts up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them.
Always turn to the glory of God and keep His character on the throne of your conscience. His spirit will quicken your mortal body to overcome the deeds of the flesh.
