Just In Spite Of (Romans 7:18-8:8)Bruce Whitehead, August 10, 2016
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
There will be times in a Christians life when the devil will throw your past in your face. You're flesh craves the bad things, what the devil gives and reminds. A weapon that can be used to fight the devil against your past is that God has cast your past sinful life as far as the east is from the west. Satan can not condemn you of something that Christ has removed. A saved person can not stay in sin. They may linger in sin but, in the end a decision must be made. Those that are lost walk in sin and will not and can not please God. The best part of it all, 1 John 2:1-2 you will never walk alone if you're saved. Attending church is not something you have to do, it's something you should want to do. Are you wondering where God is in your life? Has it been awhile since you've felt God?

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. 22For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. (KJV)
