Are the “struggle verses” of Romans 7 about a Christian’s struggle with sin? In this closer look at Romans 7, we find the glorious truth that God has freed us in Christ from sin and the law.
This is the concluding part of our series, “Living in the Reality of Perfect Sanctification”. In this lesson, we learn about Satan’s primary tactic of attacking who we really are in Christ, to try to get us to live out of ourselves. We learn about the all-sufficiency of God Himself, the great I AM.

Exploring the fact that one in Christ sins, not because they have a sinful nature, but because they are deceived. They sin because they are walking by the flesh, rather than walking by faith in the Spirit.
Most Christians hold to unbiblical, though popular, ideas about sanctification. Perhaps one of the most dangerous of these lies is the idea that one who is in Christ is bad and/or a part of them (i.e., a “sinful nature”) is bad. These dangerous doctrines are exposed with scripture and the truth of what the Bible has to say about who your really are in Christ is highlighted.
Because we have perfect sanctification, based on the perfection of Christ Jesus and His perfect finished work, we are walking “according to” this perfect and complete sanctification, not to become more sanctified.
The child of God has a perfect, full and complete sanctification, because of the perfect and complete life, sufferings, blood, sacrifice and death of Jesus Christ. This is the foundation of the fact that every single person in Christ is perfectly sanctified.
The great truth about what the Bible has to say about sanctification is astounding. When we lay aside man’s wrong definition of “sanctification” and find what the Bible has to say about this incredible truth, is indeed truth that “makes us free” (John 8:32).
