Run Through Romans (ch 5.18-21)

18Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.  19For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. This isContinue reading “Run Through Romans (ch 5.18-21)”

Run Through Romans (ch 5.17)

17For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. Romans 5.17 is one of the most powerful truths in the Bible.  Adam sinned.  The consequences of this action was that he diedContinue reading “Run Through Romans (ch 5.17)”

Run Through Romans (ch. 5.13-16)

Dear All, I am going to continue our run through Romans series.  I apologise in advance that it has been a couple of months since the last post on this, but I have been really busy with the church and with work and with planning the gospel crusade.  I would love for all of youContinue reading “Run Through Romans (ch. 5.13-16)”

The Normal Christian Life, chapter 3 (Watchman Nee)

I consider that this chapter, beautiful illustrated and explained will aid as you seek to learn from and understand Romans 1-8: Our old history ends with the Cross; our new history begins with the resurrection. “If any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: the old things are passed away; behold they areContinue reading “The Normal Christian Life, chapter 3 (Watchman Nee)”

Run Through Romans (ch. 5.12)

 12Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: Romans 5.12 introduces a new topic for Paul.  Paul’s topic from Romans 1.18- Romans 5.11 has been consistent: how God has completely dealt with the fact that man hasContinue reading “Run Through Romans (ch. 5.12)”

Run Through Romans (5.6-11)

6For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. This emphasises the point of the law: to show you that you have no strength.  To show you that you could never achieve righteousness on your own.  Because you could never achieve it on your own, Christ died for you. Continue reading “Run Through Romans (5.6-11)”

Run Through Romans (5.2-5)

2By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. You see, when we know that we are righteous and that we have peace with God we have full access to the grace of God.  That means we can stand no matterContinue reading “Run Through Romans (5.2-5)”

Run Through Romans (5.1)

1Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: Just one verse this morning, though as snow has ground London to a halt, I may have time later to comment on more of Romans 5.  However, I wanted this one truth to be nailed into your heart today.  PaulContinue reading “Run Through Romans (5.1)”

Run Through Romans (4.14-25)

Now that Paul has shown us through the example of Abraham that there is nothing you need to do to become righteous but simply believe, he decides that it is important to keep emphasizing that it is important to realize that Abraham was made righteous by his faith: 14For if they which are of theContinue reading “Run Through Romans (4.14-25)”

Run Through Romans (4.9-13)

This is some beautiful teaching here from the apostle of grace, Paul: 9Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness. Paul is taking here about the blessedness of not having your sin held against you.  As I said inContinue reading “Run Through Romans (4.9-13)”
