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…

REVIEW 2:25 You become effectively a Gentile if you do not believe. 2:28-29 Purpose of circumcision – Genesis 17:9-11 Then God said to Abraham, “As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you for the generations to come.

God's kindness is intended to lead you to repentance. Romans 2:4

Romans 2:1-16

Hypocrisy Then Jew or Gentile, ‘Do You Know Jesus?’ Review Paul’s wrote to the church in Rome to instruct them in the faith as no Apostle done as none had visited there. He wanted to tell them the truth about Jesus just as he had in Galatia, Thessalonica, and Corinth followed by letters of additional details, knowledge, and application. 1:1-9 Eight times Paul mentions Jesus or God’s son in the first nine verses and the gospel twice (v1 and v9).…
For in it God's righteousness is revealed from faith to faith just as it is written: the righteous will live by faith.

Romans 1:13-32

Review Who started the church in Rome? No one knows, but the result was errors in the faith. “Paul knew the Roman church had come into existence without the authoritative leadership of an Apostle of the Lord … and he wanted to add validity to their existence by instructing them in the faith through his epistle. He also desired to deposit a compendium of theological truth and the capital city of the empire was the natural place to do so”…

1 Thessalonians 1:4

1 Thessalonians 1:1-10

On Fire For the Gospel of Jesus Christ Review: Who are these three guys Paul, Silas, and Timothy? Paul was the Jewish Roman citizen who was named after King Saul until he met the resurrected Jesus on the way to Damascus Acts 9. In Acts 9:15-16 the Lord Jesus Christ gave the following instruction to Ananias “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel. I…
1 Thessalonians 1:2

1 Thessalonians 1:1-3

John 20:29 one week after the resurrection Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” None of us have seen Jesus in the flesh, yet we believed. We are blessed. What will we do with the blessing? Grow in Holiness? Grow in Love? Grow in our Future Hope / in our Faith. Galatians 5:6b The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.…
