This sums up Romans 7 perfectly… if you are going to focus on your own flesh, your own abilities to do right and wrong you will always fail. You can not please God and will in fact end up at enmity with God – God hates self-righteousness and only desires you to enjoy being a vessel of His righteousness. Why? Because self-righteousness hurts us more than we could ever know.

Note: For more info on the law and self-righteousness I’d encourage you to read my article “What’s the role of the law in the new covenant?” which goes into this topic in much more depth.
