How blessed is the man whose sin if not counted against him. How wonderful forgiveness is.
In Romans 7 the apostle tells us that through Jesus the disciples had died to the law, been set free from sin and from death as well. So the chapter concludes, "Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!."
In the gospel we are justified — counted as just by forgiveness in Christ — and then we are to be sanctified — sin is to be subdued and overcome in our lives by Christ's help. In this lesson, we look at how and why that change must be effective in us.
In Romans 6 Paul answers those who think that the grace of God in the gospel will lead the forgiven to sin more so that there will be more grace. He argues that we have died to sin, so we can't live in it and that we are slaves of God, no longer slaves of sin.
A short sermon seeing how the Father models the qualities of love in 1 Cor. 13 for us, and we should model them to others.
"Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." This is what Paul told the Corinthians. In this study, we see how we have failed to do this, how God's grace has elevated and sustains us to get back to, and to keep on, doing things for God's glory.
Peter made 4 claims in this first gospel sermon. He claimed that Jesus' miracles proved that He was who He claimed He was, that His death was part of God's eternal plan, that God raised Him from the dead and now God has highly exalted Him. Peter cited the eyewitnesses and Old Testament prophecies as proof of these great things.
Pilate asked the Jewish leaders, "Then what shall I do with Jesus, who is called Christ?" How does his question apply to us?
Romans 4 tells us that salvation is by faith in Christ. By faith we are forgiven and counted as righteous. This is just how Abraham was saved, and it is through faith that he becomes the father of us all.
The book of Romans is about salvation by faith in Christ. Romans 1 through 3 tells us why we so desperately need this. Romans 1 is tells of the condemnation of those who reject God and fall to every sort of evil and mistreatment of others. Romans 3 says that all have sinned. But what about the sins in Romans 2? Study this "other" condemnation with us.
Jesus taught us to pray, "Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven." In this study, we see Jesus is the same here and there, and the kingdom is the same kingdom of God, and so we should show the same spirit here, especially in the kingdom, as will be shown there.
There are several examples of Christians showing their great concern for the apostle Paul as he was headed to and from Jerusalem the final time. We quickly look at a couple of these to see what kind of care we should have for one another.
The Day of the LORD has come many times before and will come again, in one great final time for certain. This is a day of revelation, of decision and or moral imperative. Study this great day with us.
Looking at the second chapter of 1 Thessalonians, the apostle Paul taught two of the fundamental parts of the gospel: receiving the gospel as from God and and that is should cause us to have a great love for one another.
At the end of a paragraph instructing women in responsibilities and restrictions, the apostle Paul gives a special note of assurance letting them know that their work under such conditions is appreciated and that God desires their salvation.
Paul's mind was so filled with wanting to good things that he couldn't do them all. So should ours be. This can sometimes be frustrating, but it should give us so many wonderful things to look forward to. In this short study, we he how Paul explained this to the Romans.
