5 MINUTE MORNING BIBLE STUDY
Thank you for visiting this page. The pastors at Stanwich believe being in God's Word every day is an opportunity to draw closer to the wisdom, beauty, and goodness we all desire in our lives. This devotional, even if only for 5 short minutes, is a way for you and our entire Stanwich community to draw near to our Lord and Savior. I encourage you to set a reminder on your calendar to visit this page daily or sign up to receive the daily newsletter.

Rescue me, Lord, from evildoers; protect me from the violent, who devise evil plans in their hearts and stir up war every day.
The Apostle Paul confesses that there is a power residing within his heart that aggressively desires to separate him from the love of God. He cries out in anguish, knowing the enemy dwells within: "Who will deliver me from this body of death?" His only answer: Jesus Christ.
Food For Thought
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 the 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.
Referring to Romans 7:7-25, have you ever wondered why you "do not do the good you want, but do the evil you do not want but which you keep on doing anyway"? (see Romans 7:19)
