Primary texts: Romans 7:158:11 Supporting text: 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 2 Peter 1:3-4 Galatians 3:16-18

Those who attempt to obey God’s commandments without the saving grace of Christ find themselves unable to accomplish the good intentions of their heart. They are not their own masters; evil and sin rule within them. They are slaves to them and are brought into captivity to the law of sin. Only in Christ will God with every temptation make a way to escape. Paul shows that life without the grace of Christ is defeat, misery, and bondage to sin. Paul says in Chapter 8 that spiritual life, freedom from condemnation, victory over sin, and fellowship with God come through union with Christ by the indwelling Holy Spirit.

By receiving and following the Spirit, we are delivered from the power of sin and are led to final glorification in Christ
