STRUGGLE - Romans 7:14-25
When was the last time you struggled to do what you knew was right? The apostle Paul shared that he struggled with doing what he knew to be right instead of what he felt like doing. The struggle is real. Let’s engage the struggle using the help Jesus offers instead of just using our own will-power.

III. Use the means of grace that Jesus provides

Questions To Consider
What are the areas of life in which you know the right requirements from God but struggle to do them? Why do you think the struggle exists?

Throughout history there has been a debate over whether Paul is talking about Christians or non- Christians as struggling with sin. What evidence do you see for each? What does the fact that there is evidence on each side suggest?

How will you use the help that Jesus offers as you continue to struggle with the temptation to sin?
