Our Service Of Love-Part 7

May 24

 

“O wretched man that I am!  Who will deliver me from this sinful body of death? I thank God – through Jesus Christ our Lord!” - Romans 7:24-25

There are many Christians today who believe that this selfish nature we have was destroyed or removed when they were saved, but this is not so.

God does not remove the old sinful nature when He saves us; instead He gives us the Holy Spirit at the moment of our salvation to overcome the self-life as we abide and rest in Him moment-by-moment.

My friend, the old man no longer has the power to make you do wrong. You make your own choices to do wrong. Remember, you must count on the cross and your crucifixion with Christ. This is the victory that is yours in Christ Jesus. You have been set free!
