09.07.14 – We Have an Obligation

READ: Romans 7:1-8:17 REFLECT: Prior to becoming Christians, we had no option, no opportunity and no power to resist the sinful nature.

08.30.14 – There is No One Righteous

READ: Romans 3:1-31 REFLECT: “There is no one righteous, not even one.” This may seem contradictory to the argument Paul was making in chapter two. But what Paul is saying here is that there is no one righteous in and of himself and that all people, Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male or female, …
