    In the past, I have viewed Romans 7 as a description of the battle between my flesh and spirit. That is a sin management view of the Gospel and it is a vicious cycle or “doom loop” or as I like to call it, an exercise in futility. The battle is not ours and it has already been won.

    The alternative view is Romans 8:1-2. The issue of my sin has been settled and I am no longer under the Law of Sin and Death (John 3:16-18), but I have to accept that and live my life under the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus. Therefore, the issue for me is no longer sin management or behaving, but abiding in Christ and walking in the Spirit. I hope JD will talk more about this in the Second Part of the Gospel.
