About The Road to Union Series
The new creation exists in union with Jesus and the Father—a fact. Yet the road to union isn't based on attainment, but revelation and realization.
Romans 7:21-22 AMPC
So I find it to be a law (rule of action of my being) that when I want to do what is right and good, evil is ever present with me and I am subject to its insistent demands. For I endorse and delight in the Law of God in my inmost self (with my new nature).
Verse 23 (NASB): 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.
The New Life is under assault from ‘within.’ The old man is under the law of sin, a LAW! The old man is compelled to sin, caught in sin and imprisoned to an unshakable law within—a law that is always in force and always rules. And always sins!
