ESV Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day
July 16
John 8:34
34 “Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin.”
Read John 8

*This verse and statement by our Lord teaches us several things, we are by human nature sinful-beings. But ‘In Christ’, and this is by our position we have power NOT to sin, but as sinful human beings we actually sin daily, though for the most part we are perhaps not conscience of it, but this is our fallen nature itself. But again ‘In Christ’ we are given a New Nature, and as we can read in Romans 7: 13-25, with Romans 8, we are given power NOT to sin. But noting Romans 8: 18-27, etc. we “groan” in both a sinful world and in a sinful human infirmity, even personally In Christ. But Christ is Lord and the Victor!
