I am a Christian family man, Lay Pastor and writer from Deep East Texas. I love life, and I enjoy working with young people. I have published two books; "A Small Mind Among Tall Trees" and "God If You Are Not Too Busy, Can You Give Me a Hand". If you want to obtain a copy drop me an e-mail or go to or barnesand . I have been a salesman, cowman and athlete in my past. I still have a strong sense of humor and am not afraid to use it.

Romans 7:21-25

Relax, Read and Reflect
Prayer- Lord, Open our hearts and open our minds and help us learn. Go-Fight-Win. Amen.

21So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22For in my inner being I delight in God's law; 23but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. 24What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.

The "other law at work in members of my body" is sin. Paul was a real person and therefore had real struggles with sin. Just as we do, he understood that sin was wrong. Whenever he felt he was giving away to sin, he got back to the basics of his faith. Christ is all powerful, and Christ will rescue us from sin. God’s law will win over other laws, God’s law will win over sin.
We are like Paul. We struggle with sin. We look at the world and see the challenges to our faith. We see the challenges to the life we know we should live. Who will save us?
Prayer- "Thanks be to God-through Jesus Christ our Lord." Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
