So I find it to be a law, Paul says, that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand.
Sin is crouching at your door, the LORD warned Cain. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it.
You must rule over sin. But you are enslaved to sin, sold and law-bound to keep on sinning, and how is a slave to rule over his master?
He must be set free.
Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!
Crucified with Christ, the body of sin is brought to nothing, for one who has died has been set free from sin.
Thus we live and walk, no longer slaves of sin, but sons of Almighty God, set free from the law of sin and death, declared righteous, loved with a love from which nothing can separate.
Oh, yes, evil lies close at hand, but there is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
I find this to be good news, indeed.
