How to live holy ?

Verse

Rom 7:25 “Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!”

Thought

Living holy is not by trying but by trusting, Living holy is not by striving but by surrendering. Paul explains properly the result of striving. And actually what had to be done

Knowledge of Self

Rom 7:14,15 “I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do” More you know the Lord, more sins in our lives will be revealed. Wretchedness of our state will be known when we look on to Jesus, do not compare with people.

Analysis of Self

Rom 7:18,19 “I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.” Paul knew the failure was because of the sinful nature within him. So stop condemning yourself.

Desire of Self

Rom 7:22 “For in my inner being I delight in God’s law.” True child of God delights in obeying. Obeying if it burdensome it is slavery. Those of love the Lord, rejoices in obeying.

Helplessness of Self

Rom 7:24 “What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?” Paul really understood that with his efforts he will never be able to live holy.

Remedy of Self

Rom 7:25 “Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!” Forgiveness came free to us by the blood of Jesus; Strength to live a holy life also comes freely through grace and by the power of Holy Spirit.
