Day 14…

Nogreaterjoy.com/Michael Pearl – Romans Series

  • 7.
  • What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid . Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said , Thou shalt not covet .
  • 8.
  • But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead.
  • 9.
  • For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came , sin revived , and I died .
  • 10.
  • And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death.
  • 11.
  • For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me.
  • 12.
  • Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.
  • 13.
  • Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid . But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.
  • 14.
  • For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
  • 15.
  • For that which I do I allow not: for what I would , that do I not; but what I hate , that do I .
  • 16.
  • If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
  • 17.
  • Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
  • 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. <img id="iconStrongs21_1698" style="PADDING-RIGHT: 2px; DISPLAY: non
