For sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, deceived me, and through the commandment put me to death (Rom. 7:11).
Here when the commandment says “do not steal / do not commit adultery”, yet our sinful nature says: “No!. It will be good and pleasing” (deceived me). And so by committing the crime gets us into the state of disobedience which ends us in death.
These are notes from my wife, May Lin, on this verse which I thought were worth sharing.
