Romans 7:12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. 13 Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 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?

Powerful Truth Bro. Bruce's message on Romans 7 was a tremendous blessing to me. God gives to each of His preachers a mixture of graces and thorns that make their message and style especially helpful to various of His elect. Bro. Bruce's style is genuine, direct and immediate without any of the in-your-face arrogance that accompanies so much preaching. His style reminds me of Peter and John of whom it is written: (Acts 4:13 NIV) "When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus." There has been much debate on the issues raised in Romans 7. Bro. Bruce transcends the merely intellectual/theological arguments often brought to this passage and appeals directly to the hearts and experiences of every believer. If you want to know what Romans 7 is about, I recommend listening to this message. I believe that every child of God who hears this message will give the Amen to it and rejoice to have heard it. -Joe Terrell
