Sermons on Romans
As we examine ourselves under the Law, we feel shame. We know nothing we could ever do would allow us to earn our way into Heaven. But through Jesus, God promises to never condemn us or forsake us. Resting in this promise helps take away our guilt and fix our eyes on the miracle and gift of God’s grace. Scriptures: Psalm 32 Sermon Text: Romans 8:1
Jesus sacrificed everything for us. Because of his death and resurrection, we are assured forgiveness of sin and eternity in Heaven. Worship is our opportunity to thank God for His sacrifice for us. God doesn’t need your money, but He wants your heart. We don’t give to God because we feel guilty or because of a mandate; we give to God out of thankfulness and appreciation for all He has done for us. Giving money and time to God is worship. Romans 12:1-2
There is unbelievable power in my baptism. God’s Holy Spirit resides in me enabling me to put off my old sinful nature and to live the new and holy life.
When we understand how much God loves us in Christ, then we’ll learn to cling confidently to the truth that in all things God will work for our eternal good until he calls us home to heaven.
Because of Jesus, even our greatest sufferings are not worth comparing with the future glory that awaits us at the restoration of all things! Romans 8:18-25
We now have power by God’s Spirit to put to death sin in our lives and live to the glory of God. Romans 8:5-17
Because Jesus conquered sin, death, and the devil, there is right now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Zilch.
I can’t tell you how often I have the best of intentions, but in the end I fail to follow through. What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I do what I want to do? Sermon Text: Romans 7:18-25
