Sure, the Bible illumines to the conscience about sin.
But what is the way to be saved from its power?
Just to hate the sin is not enough.
Just to say "Wretched man that I am" is not enough.
So Paul who pioneered the way in Christ to freedom from sin's guilt and sin's power leads us on into chapter 8. That is he leads us to "the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus."
"There is now then no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has freed me in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and of death."
The feeling of wretchedness that concludes chapter 7 is remedied in learning to unleash a more powerful law of the Spirit of life - that spontaneous liberating grace that empowers one to fulfill the law when setting the mind on the regenerated human spirit where Christ is dispensed into the saved man.
"For that which the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God, sending His own Son in the likeness of the flesh of sin and concerning sin, condemned sin in the flesh." (v.3)
The power of sin can be annulled and put down by a more powerful Person Jesus Christ. The living LAW of divine life in Christ can free us from self condemnation and wretchedness of bondage to the hated sin nature.
"That the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the spirit." (v.4)
