Choose Wisely !
15For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18For 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. 19For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. The context of Romans 7:15-21
Always Remind me of this song, which is basically saying the same thing.
( A warring of the flesh ) ( Of course, Paul’s words are GOD’S words, ) But, you probably already know that ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPdKSlQOBYE Here are the lyrics --
"Sin's A Good Man's Brother"
Ain't seen a night
Things work out right
Things on my mind
And I just don't have the time
And it don't seem right
Ain't seen a day
That I don't hear people say
They know they're gonna die
Now, this may seem a little bit crazy
But I don't think you should be so lazy
If you think you've heard this before
Well, stick around I'm gonna tell you more
One just like the other
Sin's a good man's brother
But is that right?
You tell me that I don't
Then I say I won't
But then I might
You said this is the way it's supposed to be
But it just don't seem right to me
And that's outta sight
Some folks need an education
Don't give up or we'll lose the nation
You say we need a revolution
It seems to be the only solution
Writer(s): Mark Farner Point is ~ Were all in conflict, were all pawns in a cosmic war
With satan warring for the heavens, and what he feels should be his opportunity to be viewed like THE MOST HIGH. ( silly cherub.. )
Were the pawns & were the prize. Except ( 1 ) is trying his fool best to destroy us -
And ( 1 ) is giving us AMPLE OPPORTUNITY to be ‘ saved ‘ from certain destruction.
“ YOU “ Have got to pick a side. Not both, that would be considered: sitting on the fence. Choose one or the other.
One offers you (2) certain deaths. Physical & spiritual. ( satan ) ONE OFFERS [ YOU ] ETERNAL LIFE. ( JESUS CHRIST )
I don’t know about [ you ], but that is a “ no-brainer “
Revelation 19:1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: 1 Peter Chapter 1
7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see [him] not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
9 Receiving the end of your faith, [even] the salvation of [your] souls.
10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace [that should come] unto you:
1 Peter Chapter 1
3 Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
