Holy, Right, and Good

Series: Recalibrate | Week 7: Released from the Fight You’ll Never Win

Day Three Romans 7:11-13

Pray: Invite God into your time and ask Him to speak to you, then read the passage.

11 Sin took advantage of those commands and deceived me; it used the commands to kill me. 12 But still, the law itself is holy, and its commands are holy and right and good. 13 But how can that be? Did the law, which is good, cause my death? Of course not! Sin used what was good to bring about my condemnation to death. So we can see how terrible sin really is. It uses God’s good commands for its own evil purposes. – Romans 7:11-13 (NLT)
