But I can't help myself, because I'm no longer doing it. It is sin inside me that is stronger than I am that makes me do these evil things.I know I am rotten through and through so far as my old sinful nature is concerned no matter which way I turn I can't make myself do right. I want to but I can't. When I want to do good, I do not and when I try not to do wrong, I do it anyway.
Now if I am doing what I don't want to, it is plain where the trouble is, sin still has me in its evil grasp. It seem to be a fact of life, that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong.
I love to do God's will so far as my new nature is concerned, but, there is something else deep within me, my lower nature that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be Gods' willing servant but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is; my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I'm in ,who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God, it has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free.
