Nothing Good in Me , Myself and I !

The Believer’s experience

  • God is so adamant against the flesh and its every activity; yet the believer appears to reject only its bad features while clinging affectionately to the flesh itself.
  • Only after many years does one gradually come to realize how untrustworthy is his flesh.
  • There is uncleanness even in his best effort.
  • God consequently lets him experience Romans 7 deeply until he is ready to acknowledge with Paul: I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in my flesh” (v.18). How hard to learn to say this genuinely!
  • If it were not for countless experiences of painful defeat ( orchestrated by God ) the believer would continue to trust himself and consider himself able.
