August 26, 2012 – Morning Worship
Monday – Romans 7
What does Romans 7 teach us about the Word of God?
Tuesday – Romans 7:1–6; I Samuel 25
“If a married woman’s husband dies she is released from the “law of marriage”, “she is free to marry another.” Why does Paul use this illustration? What does it illustrate? How does it apply to us?
“The law of God is perfect reviving the soul”, it is holy, righteous and good. It is also a “yoke…that neither our fathers nor we are able to bear”; it brings condemnation, the knowledge of sin, etc. Which is it? Good that revives the soul or an unbearable yoke?
Paul says the answer to “the burden of the law” is death! How can that be? Why?
When we die to the law we are free to enter into this new relationship with Jesus. We are united to Christ through faith. How does this new relationship affect our lives?
Saturday – Hosea 2:14–23; John 10:1–18; 14:1–3, 15–27
When we die to the law through faith in Christ we are united to Christ. What blessings does that union bring to us?
