Victory over Sin

In Romans chapter 7 verse 14 through to chapter 8 verse 2 the apostle Paul describes the struggle he and we as Christians face. Our spirit is born again but not our soul and body (John 3:1-6). We are instructed to renew our minds with God's word (Rom 12:2) and discipline our bodies (1 Cor 9:27). In Romans chapter 7, Paul laments that his spirit desires to do good but his mind and body tend toward sin and carnality.

However, as born-again Christians we have the Holy Spirit in us (1 Cor 6:19) and the word of God. Paul teaches us in Romans Chapter 8 verse 1-2: "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death".

Paul is saying that as Christians God does not condemn us because our new life in Christ has set us free from the spiritual death that resulted from our old life of sin. As we strengthen our spirit by allowing the Holy Spirit to bring us revelation of God's word (John 14:26), we can bring our soul and body into subjection to our spirit, directed by the Holy Spirit and God’s word. We as Paul, can walk in victory, the: “Life in Christ Jesus”. The power of the Holy Spirit enables us in this process (Rom 8:11); he helps us to change (Gal 5:22-23). We cannot change in our own strength.
