This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

Thankful for Eternal Security Romans 7:14-8:1
John 1:12 John 3:16
This message is for those who have trusted Christ as Savior AND WANT to do what He commands, but who STRUGGLE with indwelling sin in your life.
2 Corinthians 5:21
You will never possess more positional righteousness in God’s sight than the moment you place your trust in Christ and are born again. You will never possess less positional righteousness in God’s sight after that, even as you daily BATTLE for practical righteousness in your life. That’s what grace is all about!
Romans 1:16-17 Romans 4:5
What we learn from Paul’s struggle in Romans 7:
True believers face an internal war, because they now have two NATURES
When Paul speaks of the flesh he is speaking of the COMBINATION of anti-God influences that have and do influence our decisions – our own history of sinful impulses and decisions; the Devil & his demons; unsaved influencers in our lives – all like fiery coals always ready to erupt into a fire when fed.
Engaging in the struggle itself is EVIDENCE that you really are saved
The same Jesus who saved us is going to make sure we get SAFELY to Heaven Romans 8:18-39
