We are indeed sinful, and we cannot save ourselves or deliver ourselves from our wickedness. We deserve death and punishment for our evil. So as Paul asked, “Who will deliver me from this body of death?” Here is the answer: Jesus Christ can deliver us from the body of death! Jesus can set us free from the bondage of sin that entangles us! And once he sets us free, we are free forever.
And we pray:
LORD, You sent Your Son – Jesus so that I could be free. We sinned; we screwed up, but You still cared for us. You made a way for us. It boggles my mind how much You care for us – for me. Deliver me through Your Son. Set me free of my sin and transgressions. I come to You in The name of Jesus, Who has covered and washed me. Amen.
