May 27, 2012 – Morning Worship
Monday – Romans 3:20–4:25
Paul took a lot of verses in Romans 1:18–3:19 convincing his readers of their sin. Now in Romans 3:20–4:25 (and more!) he takes a lot of verses explaining the good news, i.e. justification by faith alone. Why do both subjects demand such extended focus?
Tuesday – Romans 4:15; 7:7–25; Exodus 20:1–21
“For the law brings wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression.” What does that mean? What does it have to do with Paul’s discussion of justification of faith?
“That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring.” What does that mean? What is grace?
What is saving faith? How is it seen in these passages? Do you have it?
“Abraham was fully convinced that God was able to do what He had promised.” How does that apply to you?
See how the resurrection is central to the gospel. Why is that? What does the resurrection have to do with being justified by faith alone?
