“For in my inner self I delight in God’s law, but I see a different law in the parts of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and taking me prisoner to the law of sin in the parts of my body.
What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?
Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!” (Romans 7:22-25)
Isn’t it nice to know that even the great Apostle Paul found himself caught in the war between the flesh and the Spirit? That all of us, from the so-called greatest to the so-called smallest, struggle and fail in our humanity? But even better to know that victory can be ours, not by our own striving, but through the power of Jesus Christ which is freely and equally available to all.
P.S. See this original post for info about this photo challenge and more about this reading plan I’m using this summer for the book of Romans (and I’d love to have you join in!)!

the war inside us is probably worse than the war we can see outside our front door.
