The struggle is real. Knowing what is good and right, while at the same time wanting what is sinful. Paul reveals his own struggles with this to the church in Rome. Sin is a really strong power within our lives, and infiltrates our desires even when we want to do right. Human strength alone cannot withstand the power of sin. This is why Paul also rejoices in God because God through Jesus and the resurrection is strong enough to defeat the sin in our lives for us.
1. How has sin entered into your life?
2. How has God helped you battle this sin?
Challenge: Pray about it - ask God to continue to help you remain steadfast, and combat sin in your life. Thank God for the times that He has helped you with the struggle of sin.
