English Standard Version (ESV)
No matter how much delight we may take in God's law and in serving God, our sin is ever near, drawing us away from living in the splendor, grace and majesty of God. Without God's unconditional love, our story would end at verse 24, lamenting our fate as determined by our sinful nature, with little hope of attaining the state of grace that is marked by the purity and love of God.
Thanks be to God indeed! Through Jesus Christ, we who were marked as dead have been fated for life through faith. Because of grace, we serve Christ as redeemed, rescued, repaired. We have been saved, and we no longer look at sin as our future, but rather as a doomed enemy that cannot win the day.
