Romans - Week 11 – Chapter 7 - The Triumph of Grace over the Power of the Law

Rom 7:1-25

Or do you not know, brothers--for I am speaking to those who know the law--that the law is binding on a person only as long as he lives? Thus a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies she is released from the law of marriage. Accordingly, she will be called an adulteress if she lives with another man while her husband is alive. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law, and if she marries another man she is not an adulteress. Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.

Weeks 9 & 10 – Romans 5 – Holy Living!

The Gospel's Way to Holy Living: Rom 6:1-23

Rom 6:1 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?
Rom 6:2 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?
Rom 6:3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
Rom 6:4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
Rom 6:5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.

Week 8 Chapter 5 continuing TRIUMPH!

You may or may not be aware that I love some of the old Greek words used in our Bible. I have a program on the computer that gives me a new word for every day, on Thursday as I was beginning to put my thoughts together, when I saw my word for the day, I thought this is not a good start for the day! My word for Thursday was ‘nekros’  which means dead, it’s the word used in our New Testaments for being spiritually dead – unsaved –lost. And then I read verse 12 to 21 of Romans chapter 5 and thought, it’s not a bad word after all. Because you have to be spiritually dead to appreciate grace and justification!

Week 7 The Blessings of Justification - Living like a King!

Our justification is not simply a guarantee of heaven, as thrilling as that is, but it is also a source of wonderful blessing that we enjoy in the here and now.

 

So let us read the first 11 verses of chapter 5

 

I think this is exciting stuff…
