Carnal Man: 3) The Battle Within Sunday, March 21, 2021
Romans 7:21-23 - Paul asks why is it that he cannot do what he really wants to do. As he deals with this inward struggle, he acknowledges once more that the law is spiritual and that he is carnal and sold under sin. He does what he does not want to do and he fails to do what he wants to do. In this passage from Romans 7:21-23, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones says that Paul is talking about two different types of law: the law of the mind, which is God’s law, and the law of the members of his body. The outward members of our body such as the eyes, feet, and hands have a persistent power and law that controls them. The inward part, such as the mind and spirit, are controlled by God’s law. This conflict wages war within his body! He has a desire to keep God’s law and this shows the struggle of a regenerate man, a believing Christian. Paul also laments that the law controlling the members of his body makes him a wretched man. However, there is hope! In death, Christ will deliver the inward man, the regenerate man, from his earthly body and sin will no longer have an effect on the Christian.
