Overview Chapter Seven discussed thus far:
The connection to the what came before: Romans Six laying out both the Nature and the Necessity of Sanctification showing that sanctification consists both in our dying to sin and living to God, v 14. Also that as we are baptized into his death we must be conforming to it as Christ died for our sin we should be dying to it, v3. And as Christ rose and we also raised up to walk in newness of life we must be conforming to his resurrection living unto righteousness, v4. We are no longer under the law but grace and are receivers of great and gracious promises in Christ thus necessitating our sanctification for shall we sin against so much goodness, v 14. Our state is known by that to which we yield our obedience, v16. Sanctification and justification are two separate truths, two things that are not the same and are not to be confused but YET THEY ARE INSEPARABLE. We shall not continue in sin. But this is a high calling, this is a hard calling. And though sin no longer reigns over us and shall not have dominion over us as a tyrant and king we yet find that SIN still remains in us and can say as in ROMANS CHAP 7:19 we are not doing the good that we would but the evil that we would not. OH WRETCHED MAN THAT I AM WHO SHALL DELIVER ME FROM THE BODY OF THIS DEATH? I THANK GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.
Several things we may yet learn in our Study of Romans Seven some as follows:
-There is here a further encouragement to holiness.
-Though sin no longer reigns as formerly, it yet remains and so WE ARE NOT TO TRUST in ourselves.
-Romans Seven teaches us that sin is not yet wholly eradicated in the believer.
-And so we learn further the nature of Sanctification.
-And so also, even for the regenerate believer the law cannot justify. Justification is not by works even in the believer but by faith.
-We gain a right estimation of ourselves knowing that sin yet remains though no longer reigning.
- Romans seven speaks to the assurance of the believer alarmed to find that sin yet remains.
