I do the very evil I do not want! Romans 7.19

“For I do not do the good I want, but I do the very evil I do not want!”

Romans 7.19

Paul shows the futility of human struggle against sin in this chapter. Man may intend to do go, but he winds up committing the sin he has rejected.

The final declaration of the chapter ends this exercise in frustration. It is a must read. It leads into the rich victory of chapter 8.
