"Evil is present with me..."
Text: Romans 7:21
THE PRESENCE OF EVIL
Evil can take many forms. It wears many masks. It is always deadly. The following are expressions of evil that we are familiar with:-
1. The evil deeds of Satan
a) It was he who caused Adam and Eve to sin against God.
b) It was he who perpetuates even in the world.
2. The evil deeds of man
a) Wars are terrible reminders of how evil man can be.
b) Rampant crime is another expression.
c) Man’s inhumanity is well evidence (genocide etc).
ANOTHER STARTLING REVELATION
Sometimes we think that we are “pretty good”. Paul reveals a startling reality in this text.
“I find then a law, that evil is present with me,
the one who wills to do good.”
