18 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. Romans 7:18-19 ESV
There is no good in our human flesh. Evil is the natural result of our human condition.
There is no good in us. No matter how hard we try we are unable to live the life of Christ without His Spirit. As Paul, we are unable to do what we want and we do what we do not desire.
Lord, empower us to live in the Spirit and not by our flesh.
