Do You Really Know Him?

Sermon for the Seventh Sunday After Pentecost

SermonThe Texts  
Romans 7:15-25
15  For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.
16  Now if I do what I do not want, I agree with the law, that it is good.
17  So now it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.
18  For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out.
19  For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing.
20  Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.
21  So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand.
22  For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being,
23  but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.
24  Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?
25  Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.

Matthew 11:25-30
25  At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children;
26  yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.
27  All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
28  Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
30  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
