Human Ability or The Work of Christ?

In this message taken from Romans 7:14-25, we examine for a second time how Paul refutes any notion of human ability. We find in this passage that Paul uses himself as paradigm for all unregenerate Jews who were under the Law of Moses. From his example we learn that the Law of Moses could not enable an unbeliever to overcome their sinful nature. We also learn in this message that the Apostle Paul didn’t rebuke the Jews for desiring to obey the Law of Moses; instead, Paul criticized them for their failure to obey the Law coupled with their deception in thinking that they could obey! Come and hear for yourself why God’s power through the work of Christ and the Holy Spirit is necessary to enable sinners to do that which is pleasing in His sight.

About veldaville

A retired special education teacher with a Masters Degree in Education from Mount St. Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Was raised in an evangelical church but at age 20 joined Armstrong's Worldwide Church of God. After spending over 30 years in that cult, God opened my eyes to his truth and brought me back to the things I had learned when I was a youth. I believe that I was a Christian all along but because I was young and unlearned in the Scriptures, I fell prey to a religious cult. My ambition is, therefore, to proclaim Jesus Christ to all and especially to those who have been deceived by false teachers. My hope is that they may see the light and be saved from those who prey on their souls.
