Paul cries out in Romans 7 24, O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? The apostle s unredeemed soul was working in league with his body, holding him back from serving God. He refers to it as the law of sin and death Rom. 8 2 . But in the same verse Paul reveals the secret of victory over this law. It is another law, the law of the spirit of life in Christ which frees believers from the law of sin and death. Some call it the law of counteraction. credit James Hollandsworth 3 Tenses of Salvation

This indicates that,what i see in the mirror is not the actual me.I am the soul which is trapped in the body which is physical.JESUS has taught us not to sin even in our taught.The old testment and the quran only teaches us about our bodily deeds but JESUS teaches about our soul and that you are the soul and not your body

It is difficult to imagine that this exhausting struggle between flesh and spirit would be occurring in the life of the beloved Paul. Yet here he comes completely clean in admitting that indeed he does have the struggle going on in him. There a continual internal warfare going on inside of Paul and of every righteous Christian. Thank God that the resolution of this raging series of battles is resolved in Christ who redeems us from the curse of the law and raises us with Christ to the victory of the Spirit through our precious Redeemer Jesus Christ. The weak difference in me is made up in the mighty power of Christ and when I truly team up with and surrender to Him I know I will eventually and always win.
