Slice of Bread : Romans 7

May 26, 2012

See Bulletin Board.

Romans 7:

I believe verse 4 is speaking of our heart that changes to the accepting of Jesus Christ as Lord and as the Risen King, followed by repentance, followed by Water Baptism.

Ending of verse 6 calls us all to live in the Spirit. I was always under the impression that having the Holy Spirit in you was a radical, body shaking experience that was only available to the strongest of Christians. I was wrong, and this verse is one of many that illustrate that. The Spirit is available to all and is actually required in us if we are to really grow closer to Christ. Something that I have been hearing and I want to really believe, but Im not quite there, is seeing the realization that the Spirit World is actually more real than the Real World! I know to a lot of you that may sound ludicrous but it is a fact.

The ending of verse 13 is the case with many of the other religions nowadays. The Word or the Law has been twisted into religious practices, rather than the heart seeking to please God Almighty!

The remainder of this chapter speaks of sin, and the evil that it brings into our lives. We need to learn to not beat ourselves up on our past, our present and our future struggles. But we need to learn to pinpoint that the sin in us is the poison not ourselves. Once we pinpoint this poison, now we try like crazed dogs to flee, turn and remove this sin from our lives so that we are no longer slaves to it!!
