I am an Expert Practitioner of These Verses…and It’s Exhausting!!!

Screenshot 2018-03-07 at 1.51.40 PMI do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do – this I keep on doing (Romans 7:15-19).

This is one passage I have no problem practicing. I am an expert practitioner of these verses…and it’s exhausting!!!

I long for a day when I will be free from the pull of the flesh. I long for a day when I will fully be who I am in Christ.

Until that day, I will continue to wrestle. I will continue to battle. I am okay with that…until that day, when Christ shall return and set me free.

Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! (Romans 8:24).
