How can Jesus recue us from this body that is subject to death?

Romans 7:24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?
Romans 7:25Thanks be to God–through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.

It seems you have both your question and your answer in Romans 7.

If not, could you ask another question?

i think Jesus gives grace to him, then he can be healed.

Seeing that I am indeed taken captive by the law of sin which is in my members, how do I become free again? It was not me with my best intentions that did those things I did not want to do—it was the sin in me that became too strong for me and took me captive. This capture and the resulting deeds are called “deeds of the body
Deeds of the body are things we realize are wrong only after we have done them, because the Holy Spirit points them out to us; our eyes are opened to the fact that they were wrong. Therefore, anything wrong that we do unconsciously—without our mind or our enlightened self agreeing to it—is a deed of the body. There is no… More
.” (Romans 8:13) They are to be put to death
Is to overcome the temptations to sin that arise when our lusts and desires draw us to react in ways we know to be evil (i.e. pride, hatred, evil-speaking, envy etc.) It is the act of denying those thoughts and refusing to agree with them. The lust to sin is not only suppressed, but it actually dies. (Romans 8:13; Colossians… More
by the Spirit, and then we shall live. But if we live according to the flesh, that is to say, if we, live according to the flesh with our mind, we shall die. That is why we are not in debt to the flesh—we do not owe the flesh anything. (Romans 8:12)

Paul asks: “Who will deliver me from this body of death?” There is certainly none other than God who can liberate us from it, either through transformation
This is the process of sanctification, in which we our sinful human nature is gradually exchanged for divine nature when we in obedience to God’s will deny and put to death the sinful lusts in our flesh. (Romans 12:2; 2 Corinthians 3:18; 2 Peter 1:3-4)… More

“O wretched man that I am!” Doing what you do not want to do
If someone dares to say: “I do not serve the law of sin with my flesh!” I can only respond: “You are incredibly ignorant regarding this, and secondly, I would say you are giving in to things that you are unaware of.” No one can serve the law of God with his flesh, and where you still do not have life and light, you must necessarily serve the law of sin with your flesh. You do not want to do it, but your flesh, in which dwells no good thing, compels you to do things you do not want to do. And all this is despite you serving the law of God with your mind.

Here vigilance in the Spirit is a great help, so you can find your “deeds of the body” and judge them. Through this you are continually transformed through the renewing of your mind, so you can prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. (Romans 12:2) Or, as it is written in Ephesians 4:23-25: “… and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man
Your “old man” is your mindset before conversion. It is a state of allowing your lusts and desires to rule in your life; you have not made a conscious decision to resist committing sin. The new man is your mindset after conversion. It is a decision to overcome sin and live in righteousness and holiness. It is the mind to… More
which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore, putting away lying, ‘Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor.’”
