I am fully aware that we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us (2 Cor 4:7) and that in this lifetime we see through a glass darkly, but then face to face, now we know in part, but then we shall be known even as also we are known (1 Cor 13:12).
The theme goes like this, we take our will back and commit some sins then we give it back to God. Paul described it as a war within. He said he did things he didn't want to do, but the force inside was making him sin against his will.
Now Paul was a very Godly and Holy Saint, so if he couldn't defeat residual sin within him what hope is there for the common sinner to gain control over themselves and stop sinning. The Bible tells us we have no power over sin, only Christ has and we are at sins mercy.
