Sermons on Romans

He Did It All

Everyone faces eternal death and judgment. Nothing less than perfection in thought, word, action, even motive can fix the problem. So who can rescue us? Only God. Jesus claimed to be God and the only Way a person can be made right with God again. He came to earth, fulfilled all of God’s laws by…

We Lost It All

Text: Various passages Summary: Sin is any thought, motive or deed that goes against God. Adam and Eve were morally perfect in the Garden and after they rebelled, moral imperfection was born. Sin has impacted every relationship in creation. It broke our fellowship with God as well as with each other and with all creation.…

Belong to One Another

Text: Romans 12: 3-16 Throughout the New Testament virtually no instruction is given on how the church should run her programs.  No time is devoted to sermon length, musical style, VBS, and summer mission trips.  Instead, the NT writers provide clear teaching on how the people are to relate to one another.   We kick off the…

Chapter 6 stresses an intimate identity with Christ and answers a misconception people could have about salvation. If grace abounds…

Peace with God and More

Romans 5 builds off of chapter 4 where Paul uses Abraham and David as great examples of justification by faith. But justification is not simply a theological or theoretical belief. When we embrace justification by faith we begin to experience tremendous, life- altering truths that shape the contours of our daily lives. We explore the…
