But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. 24
Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? 25
Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin.
