You, Sin, and the Law (Romans 7:7-12)

Sermon Notes

Proposition: In Romans 7:7-12, we see two crucial clarifications in regard to YOUR relationship to the LAW and SIN so that you will affirm the goodness of the law while understanding that it cannot save or sanctify you.

  1. The law REVEALS the sinfulness of your sin (v. 7)

  2. Sin uses the law to RUIN your life (vv. 8-11)

    • Sin uses the law to produce evil in you (v. 8)

    • Sin uses the law to deceive you (v. 11)

    • Sin uses the law to bring the DEATH SENTENCE upon you. (vv. 8-11)
