This story was inspired by Romans Chapter 7 and 8.
You were weighed down by a weight too heavy to bear.
That weight is called the law (a.k.a. our self-demands) which condemns and accuses you.
With your mind you try to serve the law, but your sinful passions work with the law to produce death.
Who can save us from this death? Thank God through Jesus Christ!
Now we are dead to the law and no longer serve the sinful nature.
We no longer live by the way of the law but we live instead by the way of the Spirit of God.
Now we are alive to God as new creations and live under grace by the power of the Spirit.
