A Brief Study of Romans Day 2
This cam about as a result of confusion within me. Having an understanding of the Gospel, Jesus Christ and not misspeaking when attempting to present the Gospel to a nonbeliever is a driving force in my life today. Romans 7 and 8 seem to be a important chapters to help anyone move a little a closer to Jesus Christ, understand the law of sin and the law of God while at the same time creating a sense of grounding within the reader.
We find in he next few passages the law of sin interacting with the law of God.
Romans 7 NKJV
7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law. For I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said, You shall not covet.”
8 But sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner of evil desire. For apart from the law sin was dead.
9 I was alive once without the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died.
10 And the commandment, which was to bring life, I found to bring death.
11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me.
12 Therefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good.
