The good news follows hard on the heels of that passage, Romans 7:25 – 8:1. In Christ I am not condemned for the failing of my flesh. I still, like Paul have to battle, not only my flesh but the one who is trying to devour me, 1 Peter 5:8. But the hope and the glory is that the victory is not in my ability to deal with my sin but Christ’s.
I got there through Psalm 24. I guess it is not such a bad passage after all.
