Romans: The Gospel According To Paul … Part 10

Published: February 4, 2017
We began this series from the perspective that our time is short and we should make sure we're ordering what's left of it around the Lord's priorities for us. It won't be long before the life we've worked so hard to build for ourselves here will be left behind. All that will remain is the treasure we've stored up in Heaven.

Romans: The Gospel According To Paul … Part 9

Published: February 1, 2017
Romans 9 spoke of God's sovereign election of Israel as His chosen. In chapter 10 we saw how in the obsessive pursuit of a righteousness of their own, they rejected the righteousness that comes from God. But the rejection was clearly temporary, its duration dependent upon their response.

Romans 7:1 to 8:21
Having had a righteousness from God imputed to us by faith apart from the Law, we now have the choice to live a life of holiness. No longer enslaved to our sin nature, we can rise above any self-destructive behavior that has caused us, and those around us, sorrow in the past.

Romans: The Gospel According To Paul … Part 4

Published: January 21, 2017
Romans 5 and 6
Paul spent the better part of three chapters showing us man's desperate need for a savior. Any righteousness we can earn on our own is clearly inadequate to meet God's standards. We need to acquire a righteousness equal to His in order to dwell in His presence.

Romans: The Gospel According To Paul … Part 3

Published: January 18, 2017
Romans 3:21-4:25
But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

A Featured Article by Jack Kelley

There was such peace and harmony in The Garden. Every need was met, every desire of the heart fulfilled.

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The Book of Acts is sometimes called the Acts of the Apostles because it’s a record of their experiences in building the early Church.
