The Law aggravates sin.

For I would not have know what coveting really was if the law had not said “Do not covet.” But sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, produced in me every kind of covetous desire.

7:7b-8

slide28

The law exposes the extend of our sin.

  • Augustine-stole pears not because he was hungry, but because he was told not to. Fed pears to pigs.
  • Story of Mark Twain-a man is like a mule who will do exactly the opposite of what it is told to do. We can be mean for meanness sake.

Realize everyday you are at war with sin.
  • Most people are at “peace” with sin in their lives.

  • I believe in honesty (but I have no choice to be dishonest in my business).
  • I want my wife and daughter to be virtuous and pure (but I enjoy indulging in sexual sin).
  • I think there should be equality in this country (but I have no qualms making derogatory racist remarks).

“With every day, and from both sides of my intelligence, the moral and the intellectual, I thus drew steadily nearer to the truth; by whose partial discovery I have been doomed to such a dreadful shipwreck: that man is not truly one, but truly two.”

“I learned to recognise the thorough and primitive duality of man; I saw that, of the two natures that contended in the field of my consciousness, even if I could rightly be said to be either, it was only because I was radically both.”

Robert Loius Stevenson, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Romans 7:19 For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do- this I keep on doing.

The gospel leads us to repentance of our sins.

  • Learn daily to hate sin.(7:24 what a wretched man I am!)
  • When was the last time you admitted you were wrong in any conflict?
slide38

The gospel renews our thinking-dead to sin but alive to God (6:11).

  • Sin begins in the mind.
  • Determination to fight sin begins in the mind. (6:11a in the same way, count yourself dead to sin).

But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord, is there is freedom. And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Cor 3:14-18

the mind of the spirit chapter 8 1 11
The mind of the Spirit-chapter 8:1-11
  • 8:5Those who live in accordance to the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
  • What preoccupies us, what drives us, how we spend our times and energies, what we concentrate on and give ourselves up to will reveal whether we are in the flesh or in the Spirit.

Think about His Love, think about his goodness

Think about His grace that’s brought us through

For as high as the heavens above

So great is the measure of our father’s love

Great is the measure of our Father’s love

So great is the measure of our Father’s love

How could I forget His love

And how could I forget His mercies

He satisfies, He satisfies, He satisfies my desires
