Romans 7

Romans 7: Law of Moses Fulfilled

Paul explains that through Jesus Christ the Law of Moses was fulfilled; “…ye also are become dead by the body of Christ…” (Romans 7:4)

Paul goes on to explain that the law is not sin, in fact it is holy. We learn that the Law does not condemn, but it does reveal and define sin. Through the law we become aware of our guilt. The spiritual law cannot help a worldly man; being “…sold under sin” (Romans 7:14). Paul explains that Sin controls our actions regardless of our will. It is only by looking for help through Jesus Christ that we can escape the temptations of sin.
