From Agony to Ecstasy




Romans 7:24 – 8:4

The old saying goes, “It’s always darkest before the dawn.” Those who have been Christians long enough would agree that this statement reflects something true about the spiritual life. In fact, those words summarize the flow of Paul’s writing as he transitioned from the darkness of Romans 7 and approached the light of Romans 8. By the end of chapter 7, he was at the bottom, discouraged and groaning. He exclaimed, “Wretched man that I am!” (Romans 7:24). It doesn’t get much darker than that, does it? But then the dawn breaks in chapter 8, bringing supernatural help and bright hope to all of us. In this message, we discover how God rescues us from sin, giving promises of assurance and affirmation.
