Up-Front Information

What kind of person could write the “Constitution of Christianity”? While Paul had plenty of intellectual credentials, it was being a recipient of the grace of God that qualified him to tell others about it with power and authority. Covers Romans 1:1-7.

Unashamed of the Gospel

When was the last time you had an opportunity to share the Gospel - and failed to speak out? Being ashamed of the Gospel is a failure to understand its power. Speaking the Gospel by faith releases its power in you and another’s power to believe it. Covers Romans 1:16-17.

Are the Heathen Lost?

Can God (who is just) really hold heathen peoples - those who’ve not been told about the true God - accountable for their sins? This persistent question can be answered with scriptural evidence concerning conscious and creation. Covers Romans 1:18-27.

Abandoned by God

Does man reach a point of no return in his sin before God? Isn’t God supposed to be infinitely gracious and forgiving? “Yes” to both questions - but He is also righteous. When His righteousness is violated by those who reject Him, He releases them to the consequences of their own actions. Covers Romans 1:24-32.

Standards of God's Judgment

What parent has not heard, “That’s not fair!” when making a judgment call involving children? Standards in the home can vary, and children may have a case. But God’s children have no case when He judges. His standards are righteous and unchanging. Covers Romans 2:1-16.

The Disadvantage of Advantage

Ritual and Reality

Ever heard someone in the church say, “We’ve always done it that way”? That’s a sure sign of a tradition. If it’s kept, it must reflect a genuine biblical principle or practice- a visible sign of an invisible spiritual truth. Romans 2:25-29

God's Privileged People

Perhaps no gift has been so overlooked by mankind, and so taken for granted by the church, than the availability of the Holy Scriptures - the thought, instruction, and promises of the God of the universe. Paul reminds us what a treasure we posses. Covers Romans 3: 1-2.

Questioning the Faith

When we feel like saying, “It doesn’t matter; God will forgive me,” we are playing with spiritual fire. Sin is unjustifiable. Yes, God is glorified when He forgives, but He is also glorified when we obey Him. Covers Romans 3: 3-8.

The Final Argument

Where is the evidence of sin and depravity in the lives of those who do good and generous deeds for others? Do they really need a Savior? Paul makes it plain that, regardless of actions, man’s spiritual condition is plainly one of separation from God. Covers Romans 3:9-20.

The Righteousness of God

The work ethic is strong in all cultures, as well as it should be. Likewise it is in the kingdom of God. The difference is that in His kingdom, God has done a work that man can never do, and given it as a gift. God has freely provided His righteousness for man. Covers Romans 3:21-31.

Justification by Faith Alone

Abraham's Faith and Ours

Thus far in Romans, we have learned that salvation is by faith alone, through grace, and apart from any human works. Now Paul goes into greater detail concerning the nature of Abraham’s justification by faith, in order to make clear the inadequacy of works in contrast to the complete adequacy of the plan God has instituted.

So What's New About You?

Adam and Christ

In the second half of chapter 5, Paul introduces the doctrine of solidarity. He presents all of mankind under the federal headship of two men - Adam and Christ. We will learn that man’s connection with Adam involved him with death, and man’s connection with Christ involves him with life. Covers Romans 5:12-21.

Free to Sin or Free from Sin?

The first five chapters of Romans really deal with the past! Whet we were - what we have become through Christ. The key word here is justification. Chapters 6-8 deal with the present and the key word for these three chapters is sanctification. This lesson examines the flow of Paul’s argument from a discussion of justification for the sinner to a discussion of the holy life of the saint. Covers Romans 6:1-7.

Three Keys to Victory

Paul’s message from the beginning of Romans 6 has been the death, burial and resurrection of Christ - for us – in our place. We rejoice that the death of Christ secured for us freedom from the penalty of sin. But in chapter 6, the apostle has begun to show us a “fire insurance” from eternal punishment. His death, burial, and resurrection have freed us from the very dominion of sin and have given us the ability to live lives that are pleasing to Him and fulfilling to others. Covers Romans 6:8-14.

The Freedom of Slavery

Whenever the Gospel is preached, someone is sure to pervert its message and claim that it promotes a cavalier attitude toward sin. It is encouraging to all of us who have felt that criticism to discover that Paul had the same reaction from those who heard him. In this passage, Paul conducts a hypothetical dialogue designed to answer those who would draw false conclusions concerning the freedom that belongs to every believer in Christ. Covers Romans 6:15-23.

Freedom from the Law

There are very few things that divide Christians like their attitude towards the law. The two towers of legalism and license polarize many congregations. Legalism is the tendency to reduce one’s relationship with God to a set of rules which can, in turn, be used as a standard to measure spirituality. License is the improper application of our liberty for the purpose of gratifying the flesh rather than allowing the Holy Spirit to control our lives. Covers Romans 7:1-13.

The Holy War

As we study Romans 7, we discover three kinds of men and their relationship to the Mosaic Law. The spiritual man is delivered from the lay (7:1-6); the natural man is doomed by the law (7:7-13); and the carnal man is defeated by the law (7:14-25). Now, as Paul begins the last section of chapter 7, he shifts into the first person and the present tense. Covers Romans 7:14-25.

The Spirit and the Flesh

In a day when tolerance and non-discrimination are cultural watchwords, we must not forget that God still discriminates. He draws a firm line between spiritually-minded and carnally-minded persons. For that reason, it’s a good idea to know which is which. Covers Romans 8:5-11.

The Ministry of the Holy Spirit

We are not born again by the Spirit and then abandoned by the Spirit. We are not released from bondage to the flesh and then left to struggle on our own. Rather, we are ushered by the Spirit into an entirely new household of faith - of which God Himself is the Father. Covers Romans 8:12-17.
