Lesson 12 Romans 7:7-25
Please listen again to the sermon of March 26th, re-read Romans 7:6-25 and on your own, or better still, join with one of our small groups during the week and consider these questions, as together we dig deeper.
- What is good about the law? (read Romans 7:7-13). List all the aspects you can find.
- What are the limitations of the law? Make a list of these as well.
- How can the law, which was supposed to lead to life, actually lead to death?
- In Romans 7:14-25 we hear about one person’s inner struggle. Have you experienced a similar struggle in your own life of faith?
- Are there ways in your life in which your “spirit is willing” but your flesh is weak? In other words, you know what you should do but doing it is a challenge. (healthy eating, getting regular exercise, finishing up overdue projects, choosing good habits, etc)
- In spite of the struggle, why is Paul still thankful (vs 24-25)?
- Which is greater: the struggle to live this Christian life or being open and honest about the struggle?
- How can Paul’s honesty and openness about the challenges (which are common to us all) encourage us?
- Have you ever experienced Jesus rescuing you from a situation that was bigger than you could handle on your own? How do you experience Him helping you now?
