Romans 7:24-25 ” What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God – through Jesus Christ our Lord!”

Paul had a way of cutting through the flowery language and being brutally honest about who he really was without Jesus in his life. He was one miserable human being… spiritually dead and separated from God. But in the next breath, Paul speaks of being eternally grateful that Jesus Christ had set him free and liberated him from the law of sin and death.(Romans 8:2) For in reality we can only serve one master…we can either be a slave to sin, or a slave to obedience. (Romans 6:16)
