Romans

Governing Authorities (13:1-7)

In category:

We serve a God who is loving, kind and merciful. The Old Testament writers repeatedly assure us that He does not treat us as our sins deserve. We see this most clearly in the fact that God sent Jesus Christ to redeem us from our sin. Jesus takes the penalty for sin upon Himself for those who choose to follow Him.

Cling To What Is Good (12:9-21)

In category:

The Gospel – that is the death, burial and resurrection of Christ – should have a profound effect on our lives. Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf is the strongest expression of God’s love for us and of His mercy.

Living Sacrifices (12:1-8)

In category:

The theme of the first 11 chapters of the Apostle Paul’s inspired letter to the followers of Christ at Rome is God’s mercy in granting salvation to sinners. Without God’s mercy, all of us would perish because we fall short of God’s expectations and standards.

Mercy On Them All (11:25-36)

In category:

We enjoy stories in which the characters overcome seemingly impossible odds. They face a situation which threatens to overwhelm them or destroy them and there is no way out. Then, when hope is almost gone, the consequences of a choice made much earlier change the situation and provide a solution.

Riches For The Gentiles (11:11-24)

In category:

It is probably true that almost all people live with a sense of failure. Very few of us are able to accomplish everything we would like to do. Even the things we do accomplish rarely reach the level of perfection we would like. In a more profound sense, we fail to reach our full potential. We are not the people we know we ought to be. We know that there is still room for growth in our character. For example, we are not as wise as we should be.

A Remnant Chosen By Grace (11:1-10)

In category:

We humans have the tendency to let the principle of “collective guilt” influence our actions. For example, if a foreign government does something we don’t like, we will insult or harass a person from that country even though he had nothing whatever to do with the incident, has no influence over the policy of his government and disagrees with what it did. In the same way, it is not uncommon for people to vent their displeasure on a whole community for the actions of one of its members. What is even worse is when a whole community is punished, not on the basis of actual guilt, but because of a rumor that someone might have done something.

Good News (10:14-21)

In category:

Businesspeople face a two-part problem. First, they must provide a product or service which others are willing to buy. Secondly, they must let others know that the product or service is available. For example, suppose someone starts a restaurant. His kitchen may be spotlessly clean. He may use only the finest ingredients in his dishes. His recipes may be healthier and tastier than anybody else’s. He may serve large portions. His prices may be cheaper than other restaurants. He may provide swift and efficient service. Yet, if nobody knows that his restaurant exists, he will not have any customers. Somehow he must tell people about his restaurant before they will come and eat there.

The Word Is Near You (10:5-13)

In category:

There is a saying that, “Ignorance gets us into trouble and pride keeps us there.” The reason pride often prevents us from escaping the situation we are in is that we don’t like to admit that we are wrong. We don’t like to confess that we have made a mistake.

A Righteousness That Is By Faith (9:27-10:4)

In category:

When a painter paints a picture the paint does not have any right to say what kind of picture he should paint. When a potter forms a utensil the clay does not have any say in what kind of pot it ought to be. Further, the painter and the potter can destroy their work if they so choose. The paint and the clay have no right to complain about it. Though this is obvious to us regarding the things we make, we object when the same principle is applied to us. God created us. He has the right to make us however He likes and He has the right to honor us or to destroy us if He so chooses. Nevertheless, we object and say that God is not just when we find ourselves under His condemnation.

God’s Purpose (9:1-18)

In category:

One of the messages of the Apostle Paul’s inspired letter to the church at Rome is that there is nothing which can separate the followers of Christ from God’s love. No matter what the situation is; whatever dangers or persecution they may have to face, there is nothing in all of heaven or earth which can prevent God from bringing good out of it for those who love Him.
