For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. Romans 7:19

This sentiment is very similar to 7:15 – “For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do.” These parallel sentiments show us, quite clearly for even the hardest head to think through, that we have a will which desires to do good.… Read the rest

If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. Romans 7:16

This verse is an obvious truth. If the thing that I will to do, which is based on the law (see the previous verse’s example concerning the people of Israel at the giving of the law), is the thing that I don’t practice, and the thing that I do is the thing I will not to do (which is something contrary to the law), then “I agree with the law that it is good.”

To get this straight, because the wording can be hard to grasp, just think of a law which is good and reasonable – say for example, keeping the posted speed limit of 40 mph.… Read the rest
