Romans 13:8

Romans 13:8-14

REVIEW: 13:1-2 Four examples where this seems to have been violated: Exodus 1:22-2:1-3 Daniel 3:14-18 Daniel 6:11-13 Matthew 2:13-15a&16 So what are we to make of this? What Jesus had to say: Mark 12:17 and Luke 12:12-21 Romans 13:3-4 Example Proverbs 28:1 Romans 13:5 Do not set yourself up as sole arbiter of what is just and what is not, but use God’s word and His appointed leaders – even there be cautious. When Paul wrote this, the first generation…
Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

Romans 13:1-7

REVIEW: Romans 12:1-2 1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:6-8 Whatever your gift is, use it…
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be instant in prayer.

Romans 12:2-21

(Recording is distorted) Do Not Conform, Serve the Body, Love not Hate REVIEW: Romans 12:1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 12:2 Why are you here? Once you have made Jesus your Savior and your Lord you become a living sacrifice. As a living sacrifice, learning how to be a non-conformist! Look at Romans 12:2…
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

Romans 11:33-12:2

Your Living Sacrifice – Holy and Acceptable /Pleasing REVIEW: Matthew 26:26-28 Communion While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and gave it to His disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is My body.” Then He took a cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is My blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many for…
Oh, how great are God's riches and wisdom and knowledge!

Romans 11:22-36

Israel’s Salvation and I, Paul, Know Nothing REVIEW: Romans 9: God is sovereign and no one deserves to go to heaven. It is only through God’s sovereign mercy we are afforded the opportunity to accept the free gift of Grace for salvation. Romans 10:9-10 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are…
Did God reject His people? By no means!

Romans 11:1-21

REVIEW: If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Replacement Theology teaches that the church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. Remnant – 1. a small remaining quantity of something Why these two definitions? Because if you…
If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Romans 10:1-20

REVIEW: We need to be rescued from our sins which are leading us directly to death. Who will rescue us? Chapter 8 We have a living relationship with Christ – because of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit … there can be no such relationship without the Spirit. As Christians over time we experience a spiritual evolution of sorts as we conform ourselves to the image that is Jesus. Chapter 9 God is sovereign and no one deserves to go…
What then shall we say? Is God unjust? Not at all!

Romans 9:1-33

REVIEW: 7:24-25 We need to be rescued from our sins which are leading us directly to death. Who will rescue us? There is only one who will rescue us – Jesus Christ. Why does it take time to complete the rescue to rid the body of sin? Because we knew very little of all corruption or sin we had inside. Jesus and the Holy Spirit knew so we have Philippians 1:6 He who began a good work in you will…
If God is for us who ca be against us?

Romans 8:18-39

REVIEW: The indwelling sin we all have is a tyrant whose dictates we hate and loathe like Paul. Like Paul, we struggle in vain by our own strength. So the problem boils down to his and our inability to win the war against sin. We want to do what is right, but find ourselves doing what we know is wrong. 7:24 So we all cry out in agony how wretched we are. We need to be rescued from our sins…
If our minds are ruled by the Spirit, we will have life and peace.

Romans 8:1-17

REVIEW: Paul’s and Our Conflict The indwelling sin we all have is a tyrant whose dictates we hate and loathe like Paul. Like Paul, we struggle in vain by our own strength. 7:14-23 So the problem boils down to his and our inability to win the war against sin. We want to do what is right, but find ourselves doing what we know is wrong. 7:24 So we all cry out in agony how wretched we are. We need to…
What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Romans 7:1-25

REVIEW & PREVIEW: What happens if and when you try to get rid of sin on your own? Jesus gives the answer in Luke 11:24-26. Paul provides the answer to defeating our sin nature at the end of this chapter and it will be similar to 6:14 The law demanded obedience, but grace supplies the will and the power to obey; grace breaks the mastery of sin as law could not. Marriage and the Law In these six verses we…
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life.

Romans 6:15-23

Who do you belong to? Who do you follow? REVIEW: Paul’s confession in 1 Timothy 1:13-15 Although born into Adam’s family, into sin, we are reborn into Jesus’ family and Jesus says in John 10:27-28 Question asked in 6:1 and answered in 6:2 By no means! (All other versions: God forbid! Certainly not! Absolutely not! Heaven forbid! May it never be! By no means! That’s unthinkable! What a ghastly thought! What a terrible thought!) 6:11-12 …count yourselves dead to sin…
