Text: Law Cannot Save from Sin
13 Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, nsold under sin. 15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. oFor what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. 16 If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. 17 But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 18 For I know that pin me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. 19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. 20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.
21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. 22 For I qdelight in the law of God according to rthe inward man. 23 But sI see another law in tmy members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me ufrom this body of death? 25 vI thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.
1 Truly bmy soul silently waits for God;
From Him comes my salvation.
2 He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my 1defense;
I shall not be greatly cmoved. 2
3 How long will you attack a man?
You shall be slain, all of you,
dLike a leaning wall and a tottering fence.
4 They only consult to cast him down from his high position;
They edelight in lies;
They bless with their mouth,
But they curse inwardly. Selah
5 My soul, wait silently for God alone,
For my 3expectation is from Him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my defense;
I shall not be 4moved.
7 fIn God is my salvation and my glory;
The rock of my strength,
And my refuge, is in God.
8 Trust in Him at all times, you people;
gPour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us.

Sub- devil confesses
-starting in the church first we must depowerize the devil.
Point Two: Expectations- looking forward
Sub- unmet needs
Sub- Jesus met them all
