Living 24/6 in a 24/7 World – Part 1

“LIVING 24/6 IN A 24/7 WORLD – Pt. I” INTRO: Are we really made to live 24/7? Do you ever feel like your life is too busy? like you’re often tired, and seldom truly rested? Does it ever seem like life has gotten more complicated than it should be? Could it be that God wants […]

Thankful For Justification By Faith (Romans 5)

“THANKFUL FOR JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH” (Romans 5) INTRO: Justification by faith (”just as if I’d never sinned”) – a guilty person’s record being pronounced clean. 7 BENEFITS/CHARACTERISTICS OF JUSTIFICATION: Peace with God (v. 1).

Guilty, But Justified Freely! (Romans 3)

“GUILTY, BUT JUSTIFIED FREELY!” (Romans 3) I. GOD’S JUDGMENT IS JUST (Rom. 3:1-8).

“GUILTY!” (Rom. 2:6 – 3:20) INTRO: The primary theme of Romans is the good news. Good news is only good news when there’s a need for or benefit from the good news. One of the primary reasons why the good news is such good news is because of the universal guilt of mankind. I. GOD’S […]

Judging (Romans 2:1-5)

“JUDGING” (Romans 2:1-5) INTRO: Last week in Romans 1:22-32, we saw that when people don’t honor God, they tend to do dishonorable things and God obliges.

Three Foolish Exchanges (Romans 1:22-32)

“THREE FOOLISH EXCHANGES (Romans 1:22-32)” INTRO: Why do reasonably smart people often reject God and His standards as clearly revealed in the Bible?
