Every Day Can’t Be Awesome

Every Day Can’t Be Awesome

Everyday, if we want to win, we will have to battle.

Romans 7:18-21
18 For I know that good itself does not dwell 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 I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. 21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me.

  • Everyday Can’t Be Awesome
    • “Evil is right there with me”
      • Evil will snuggle with you on a cold day
      • Evil will be your wingman on a dark night
      • Evil will wear red dress on a road trip
      • Evil will be a notification from an old friend in your inbox
    • Change Seemed Impossible
      • His want to wasn’t enough

Romans 7:22-23
22 For in my inner being (my spirit) I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me.

  • My Flesh Will Make My Mind A Prisoner
    • Nature Versus Nurture, Or Neither
      • The Chasm Between Factors And Fate
      • Between Options And Outcomes
      • Nature: Predisposition Does Not Equal Permanence
        • DNA is hardwired
      • Nurture: Proximity Does Not Decide My Destiny

Romans 7:24-25a
24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25a Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!

  • Who Will Rescue Me?
    • It’s Jesus
  • Here’s The Forecast
    • We have all sinned and fallen short
  • We Must Oppose The Opposition
    • Everyday, if we want to win… we will have to battle
    • We have to battle our desire to lust, our desire to twist and our desire modify God’s Word
