Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God's law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin.

Romans 7:25 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord - That is, God will deliver me through Christ.

Serve the law of God with my mind - My reason and conscience declare for God. But with my flesh the law of sin - But my corrupt passions and appetites still rebel. The man is now utterly weary of his bondage, and upon the brink of liberty.

But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me.
And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.
1 Corinthians 15:57
But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.
