I really liked the visual that was made between Paul’s almost schizophrenic emotion that is found in Romans 7:15-20 to that of Frodo being controlled by the ring. He knows what he should do, but doesn’t. He knows he should get rid of the evil that is in the ring, but it controls him and he does what he hates.
I also enjoyed the peek into the next sermon that will cover Romans 8. The law of sin is replaced by the law of the Spirit. The Law reveals sin, but the Law of the Spirit will set us free from the law of sin and death.
