Key Passage: Romans 7.19
God knows everything about us. It’s crazy that the God of the universe knows what we’re thinking. If we’re honest with ourselves, it can be overwhelming. God hears that intense, internal dialogue we have about someone that really frustrates us. God knows about the junk in our lives. Today, we’ll read about the apostle Paul’s struggle with sin. Scholars differ as to whether Paul’s referring to his current experience or the time just before his conversion. Regardless, let’s dig in and we’ll find we have some things in common with Paul. Contemplating our sin can be like fingernails on a chalkboard. We don’t want to go there, but it makes Christ’s forgiveness and grace even more meaningful.
