Jesus Christ alone can set us free from sin and death.

Scripture: Romans 7:21-25

ESV Text: Romans 7:21-25

Romans 7:21-25 (Listen)

21 So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. 22 For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, 23 but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. 24 Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin. (ESV)


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 7
21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 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.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 297:
The Gospel Shows the Father’s Grace

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. The Gospel shows the Father’s grace, 
Who sent His Son to save our race, 
Proclaims how Jesus lived and died 
That man might thus be justified. 

2. It sets the Lamb before our eyes, 
Who made the atoning sacrifice, 
And call the souls with guilt opprest 
To come and find eternal rest. 

3. It brings the Savior’s righteousness 
Our souls to robe in royal dress; 
From all our guilt it brings release 
And gives the troubled conscience peace. 

4. It is the power of God to save 
From sin and Satan and the grave; 
It works the faith, which firmly clings 
To all the treasures which it brings. 

5. It bears to all the tidings glad 
And bids their hearts no more be sad; 
The heavy-laden souls it cheers 
And banishes their guilty fears. 

6. May we in faith its tidings learn 
Nor thanklessly its blessings spurn; 
May we in faith its truth confess 
And praise the Lord our Righteousness!
