Romans 7:21 ” So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me.”

The principle being talked about here is God’s law vs the law of sin. It’s kind of like that image of having a angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other, each trying to persuade you to do things their way. Paul went on to say, “I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members.” (Romans 7:22-23) These two diametrically opposed laws are constantly at war within us…it’s just a matter of who we listen to or not…but as Romans 6:16 warns us, “You are slaves to the one whom you obey.”
