Unspiritual – Romans 7:14

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Romans 7:14
We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin.

To get a better understanding on this, let’s read some of the following verses here for context.

15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do – this I keep on doing.

The text continues with explaining Paul’s struggle. So, what’s the point? As long as we are alive on this side of eternity, we will be at war with sin.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!
