Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.
Our wretched introspection must always recoil into the perspective of God’s grace. Our mind was renewed with our souls by the blood of our Savior, but our carnality still shrinks back into its sinful desires. This is why our mind must be disciplined, which is only by the work of God HImself, that thrives only in the nourishment of His word.
