Passage: Romans 7:24-25

With The Mind I Myself Serve The Law Of God

O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin

(ROMANS 7:24-25)

God’s children would be very glad if they could “live as they [desired].” How so? Because it is the will, the desire, the wish, of a renewed soul, that is, of the new man, or the believer’s regenerate part; (for old Adam never was a saint yet, nor ever will be;) it is, I say, the will and the wish of a renewed soul to please God in all things, and never to sin on any occasion or in any degree. This is the state to which our pantings aspire; and in which, would the imperfection of human nature admit of such happiness below, we “[desire]” to walk. For every truly regenerated person can sincerely join the apostle Paul, in saying, “With the mind I myself serve the law of God;” and wish I could [serve Him] better.
