Sermon Notes and Scripture:
4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. – Matthew 5:4
21 So I find this law (principle) at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. – Romans 7:21
BE KILLING SIN, OR IT WILL BE KILLING YOU.
22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. – Romans 7:22-23
JESUS CHRIST RESCUES THE CAPTIVE AND SETS THEM FREE.
24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin. – Romans 7:21-25
