When it comes to disobedience, it seems that our struggle can be really summarized by Paul’s admittance in Romans 7 where he says “ I want to do what is right, but I can’t. I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway.” Sometimes we find ourselves in that very same position where we know what the right thing to do is but yet it’s not only hard for us to make the right choice, a lot of times or more times than we’d like to admit, we find ourselves making the wrong choice and being in a place of disobedience to God’s word. Does this mean that we are all doomed if we can’t get it together and live completely holy obedient lives all the time? Not by any means. The Bible tells us many truths including these 2 important truths: 1. All of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) and 2. A righteous man falls 7 seven times and gets back up again (Proverbs 24:16). Now note that he is still considered righteous though he fall. However, his righteousness is shown through his attempt to try again, to be better again, to commit to doing what is right with his whole heart.
