Romans 8:1-17 Message

Romans 8:1-17 Message

LED BY THE SPIRIT Romans 8:1-17, Key Verse: 14 “For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.” I think it’s safe to say that in one way or another, everybody is looking for a new way to live—a way that will set them on higher ground and give them real victory over the struggles that they face day by day. But what can give us power to live in a new way? Many people…

DEAD TO THE LAW; BELONGING TO CHRIST Romans 7:1-25, Key Verse: 4 “So, my brothers and sisters, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God.” Thank God for the wonderful worship service last Sunday! We could see God’s great mercy on Msn. Jonathan, His gracious protection on Carlos and His guiding hand on Bill. We could also…

Romans 6:1-23 Message

UNITED WITH CHRIST FOR NEW LIFE Romans 6:1-23, Key verse 4 “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” From the last Sunday’s passage, Romans 5, we learned how God’s righteousness brings fruitful lives. They are peace, perseverance, character, and hope, that enable us to transcend from the sufferings of life to eternal hope through the…

Romans 5:1-21 Message

WE HAVE PEACE WITH GOD Romans 5:1-21, Key Verse: 5:1 “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, …” The key word of the entire book of Romans might be “righteousness.” We can divide Romans Chapters 1-8 into four parts, all relating to righteousness: First, the introductory section in 1:1-7, which states that God’s righteousness is revealed in the gospel. Second, in 1:18-3:20, Paul describes God’s righteous judgment upon the whole world. Third, in…

ABRAHAM’S FAITH AND OURS Romans 4:1-25, Key Verse: 4:23, 24 “The words ‘it was credited to him’ were written not for him alone, but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead.” From Msn. Gideon’s message last week, we learned that no one is righteous and that righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ. Since justification is done apart from works but by faith, there is no boasting…

Romans 3:1-31 Message

JUSTIFICATION THROUGH FAITH Romans 3:1-31, Key Verse: 3:24 “…and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” In the last passage, Paul challenged all self-righteous people who try to excuse themselves from God’s judgment by passing judgment on others according their own standards, either as a Gentile or according to the law and circumcision privilege as a Jew. But God’s judgment will be on the Jews for they did not keep the laws, and…

GOD’S WRATH AGAINST UNRIGHTEOUSNESS Romans 1:18-32, Key Verse: 1:18 “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness…” Thank God that we could embark one of the greatest spiritual journeys with the Romans’ study. It is not an exaggeration when we say our Christian theology is founded on Paul’s exposition to the Roman believers. From Msn. Gideon’s message last week, we learned about the grace…

THE RIGHTEOUS WILL LIVE BY FAITH Romans 1:1-17, Key Verse: 1:17 “For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: ‘The righteous will live by faith.’” Introduction: The book of Romans is a letter written by Apostle Paul for Christians in Rome during his 3rd missionary journey in AD 57, while he was either in Corinth or Cenchrea. The main purpose is to explain…

Ruth 3:1-18 Message

This Kindness Is Greater Than That Which You Showed Earlier Ruth 3:1-18 (K. V. 3:10) “‘The Lord bless you, my daughter,’ he replied. ‘This kindness is greater than that which you showed earlier: You have not run after the younger men, whether rich or poor.’” We are at the peak of Ruth’s study. Last week, we learned how God knows our faith and rewards those who honestly seek him. We also learned how Boaz foreshadows Jesus, our ultimate guardian-redeemer. Today,…

Ruth 1:1-22 Message

Naomi and Ruth Ruth 1:1-22, Key Verse 1:16 “But Ruth replied, ‘Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.’” Today we begin our study of the short Old Testament book of Ruth. The book of Ruth is important because (1) it shows the historical connection between the time of the judges and…
