21So I find it to be a law that when I want to do what is good, evil lies close at hand. 22For I delight in the law of God in my inmost self, 23but I see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind, making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. 24Wretched man that I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with my mind I am a slave to the law of God, but with my flesh I am a slave to the law of sin. (Romans 7:21-25, NRSV)
Who will rescue me from myself?
Who will save me from the evil that I do?
Because when I want to do good, evil is close at hand and I know there is a war inside of me.
Jesus is the one who can lead us out of our darkness and into his light.
This reminds me of one of my favorite songs. Todd Agnew’s War Inside. A song that talks about how we battle ourselves every day with the decisions we make.
