Romans 7: Limits of the Law

Like the police officers who are charged to enforce the law of the land, the Law of God merely draws attention to our shortcomings. The police cannot make you slow down, and the Law of God cannot make you stop sinning. But both can certainly make you aware of your deficiencies. God was not satisfied to leave us dwelling on our failures. 7:24-25 tells us some very good news!
