Anti-pelagian Writings by St. Augustine

Chapter 22.--Why the Passage Referred to Must Be Understood of a Man Established Under Grace.

And it had once appeared to me also that the apostle was in this argument of his describing a man under the law. But afterwards I was constrained to give up the idea by those words where he says, |Now, then, it is no more I that do it.| For to this belongs what he says subsequently also: |There is, therefore, now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus.| And because I do not see how a man under the law should say, |I delight in the law of God after the inward man;| since this very delight in good, by which, moreover, he does not consent to evil, not from fear of penalty, but from love of righteousness (for this is meant by |delighting|), can only be attributed to grace.
