Portrait of a Struggling Christian


From: £1.50


Romans 7:1–7, 13-24

Let’s face it: every one of us who knows Christ as Saviour has been torn within while fighting battles with the flesh. We feel frustrated, and we are occasionally defeated in that struggle. We realise we have God’s power within us, and we know that His Spirit is at work, prompting us to do what is right—but we do wrong. Knowing we should obey, we disobey. Wanting to think, say, and do what is best, we covertly rebel. We’re not short on desire, but when it comes to pulling it off, we blow it! Paul, speaking for all of us, brought truth out of the closet and exposed it for what it is: SIN. He put it this way: “I am of flesh, sold into bondage to sin” (Romans 7:14). When Charles Haddon Spurgeon stood to preach on this awful reality, he appropriately titled his message, “The Monster Dragged to Light.” Now, let’s face that monster head-on.
