    AN INTRODUCTION TO THE BOOK OF ROMANS. I BELIEVE THAT PAUL TEACHES US THAT A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST WILL ALWAYS LEAD TO A DEEPER EXPERIENCE WITH CHRIST, BUT A CHURCH EXPERIENCE ALONE MAY NOT LEAD TO A RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST.

    THE DIVINE CALLING ROMANS 1:1-17 LETTERS ARE A SIGINIFICANT PART OF OUR LIVES. I REMEMBER AS A CHILD HOW EXCITING IT WAS TO BE HANDED AN ENVELOPE THAT READ MASTER DOUGLAS PHILLIPS. IT WAS ALWAYS A SPECIAL DAY AS IT DIDN’T HAPPEN TO OFTEN. I REMEMBER ON THE DAY OF MY MOTHER’S ...read more

    CHAPTER TWO, BRINGS US INTO A KEY THEOLOGICAL POINT FOR PAUL, IN THAT HE EXPRESSES THAT BOTH JEW AND GENTILE STAND EQUALLY GUILTY BEFORE GOD WITH REGARDS TO SIN AND THE NEED OF FORGIVENESS.

    MORE THAN HEARERS ROMANS 2:18-29 PAUL WROTE THE BOOK OF ROMANS AS A MEANS OF INTRODUCTION TO THE CITY-CHURCHES OF ROME. HE HAD A GREAT DESIRE TO VISIT THERE, THOUGH THE CHURCH ITSELF WAS NOT ESTABLISHED BY HIM. PAUL DESIRED TO BE AN ENCOURAGER TO THE ESTABLISHED CHURCH, AND POSSIBLY TO HAVE ...read more

    RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT ROMANS 3:21-31 THERE ARE TIMES IN OUR LIVES WHERE SHORT SIMPLE WORDS CAN HAVE GREAT SIGNIFICANCE. CONSIDER THE HUSBAND IN THE WAITING ROOM AT THE HOSPITAL GOES BANANAS WHEN HE HEARS THE DOCTOR SAY “IT’S A BOY” OR “IT’S A ...read more

    tHIS IS THE SECOND PART OF A SERMON ON ROMANS CHAPTER 3. IT FOCUSES ON PAUL'S TEACHING ON JUSTIFICATION IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, AND THE POWER OF THE NEW COVENANT

    JUSTIFIED BY CHRIST ROMANS 3:22-31 WHEN LAST WE MET, WE CONSIDERED HOW THE OLD TESTAMENT BORE WITNESS TO THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD. THE OLD COVENANT IS SIGNIFICANT IN THAT IT WAS, FIRST A TEMPORAL MEANS FOR THE ISRAELITES TO ATTAIN A RIGHTEOUS STANDING, AND SECONDLY POINTED TO A MORE PERMANENT ...read more

    PAUL CHANGES FOCUS IN CHAPTER FIVE AND BEGINS TO DEAL WITH THE ISSUE OF SANCTIFICATION. THIS IS THE FIRST PART OF A TWO PART MESSAGE THAT DEALS WITH FIVE CONTRASTS BETWEEN THE OLD COVENANT AND THE NEW COVENANT, THE FIRST ADAM AND THE LAST ADAM..

    COMPARE AND CONTRAST ROMANS 5:12-6:14 THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES WHEN I HAVE BEEN ASKED TO EXPLAIN SOME VERY CONTROVERSIAL THEOLOGICAL POSITIONS, ONE OF WHICH IS THE UNIVERSALITY OF SIN. IT DOES NOT SEEM FAIR THAT BECAUSE ADAM SINNED, WE SHOULD ALL BE PLACED IN A GUILTY POSITION AS SINNERS. SOME ...read more

    THIS IS THE SECOND OF A TWO-PART SERMON ON PAUL'S TEACHING ON SANCTIFICATION. HE USES BAPTISM TO TEACH THAT AS CHRISTIANS WE ARE NO LONGER UNDER THE DOMINION OF SIN BECAUSE WE UNITE WITH CHRIST, NOT JUST IDENTIFY WITH HIM, IN HIS DEATH, THROUGH BAPTISM.

    FROM DEATH TO LIFE WE NEED TO REMEMBER AS WE START TODAY, THAT THE BOOK OF ROMANS IS A LETTER THAT ORIGINALLY HAD NO CHAPTER OR VERSE BREAKS. WHEN WE GET TO THE END OF CHAPTER FIVE, IT DOES NOT MEAN WE’VE REACHED THE END OF PAULS THOUGHT ON THIS ISSUE. LISTEN WHEN I READ THE LAST TWO ...read more
