There is a chorus to a song that goes like this: “When the gates are all down and the signals are flashing and the whistle is screaming in vain, and you stay on the tracks, ignoring the facts, well you can’t blame the wreck on the train”. Folks sometimes continue to repeat mistakes and blame others or circumstances or events, when in truth they continue to place themselves in a position that causes the problem.
In Romans 7:21-25 the apostle Paul describes the dilemma and gives the solution: “So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, 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. Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 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.”
Man, you gotta quit blaming that train!
