A PURE HEART – HOW CAN WE HAVE IT?

We are the Problem

At the end of Romans 7 Paul discovers that he doesn’t just have a problem – he is the problem! He finally says “Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?” At this point he knew that no amount of trying harder or resisting more was going to prevent us from sinning. He was the problem so he can’t be the solution. He has to look elsewhere and having reached this point he immediately sees the answer “Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord (Rom. 7:25).”

I hope you have also realized that we cannot cure ourselves. Only our Lord Jesus can. A dog doesn’t become a dog because it barks. A dog barks because it’s a dog. The same with us, we are not sinners because we sin, but we sin because we are sinners. So we cannot help ourselves because we are the problem ourselves. The only solution is our Lord Jesus.
