Romans 7:1,5,6,18-25
1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I
speak to them that know the law,) how
that the law hath dominion over a man
as long as he liveth?
5 For when we were in the flesh,
the motions of sins, which were by
the law, did work in our members to
bring forth fruit unto death.
6 But now we are delivered from the
law, that being dead wherein we were
held; that we should serve in newness
of spirit, and not in the oldness of
the letter.
18 For I know that in me (that is,
in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing:
for to will is present with me; but
how to perform that which is good I
find not.
19 For the good that I would I do
not: but the evil which I would not,
that I do.
20 Now if I do that I would not, it
is no more I that do it, but sin that
dwelleth in me.
21 I find then a law, that, when I
would do good, evil is present with
me.
22 For I delight in the law of God
after the inward man:
23 But I see another law in my
members, warring against the law of
my mind, and bringing me into
captivity to the law of sin which is
in my members.
24 O wretched man that I am! who
shall deliver me from the body of
this death?
25 I thank God through Jesus Christ
our Lord. So then with the mind I
myself serve the law of God; but with
the flesh the law of sin.
Romans 8:1,2
1 THERE is therefore now no
condemnation to them which are in
Christ Jesus, who walk not after the
flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life
in Christ Jesus hath made me free
from the law of sin and death.
