The Great Reveal: Our Epic Journey Through Time, Space and Eternity – Part 15

In the last part of our study we saw how God responded to Adam and Eve after they failed God’s simple test –

“… but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” Genesis 2:17

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.” Genesis 3:6-7

God met with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and told them how their lives were going to change. They would experience pain, sorrow and death because of their disobedience to God.

What happened next is deeply important to the eternal plan of God that is playing out in time and space.

Romans – The Gospel of God (Part 70)

We are currently looking at Romans 3 as the Apostle Paul asked and answered several questions about accusations against his teaching. They included –

  • Paul’s teaching impugns God’s covenant with Israel (3:1-2)
  • Paul’s teaching impugns God’s faithfulness (3:3-4)
  • Paul’s teaching impugns God’s justice (3:5-6)
  • Paul’s teaching impugns God’s truth (3:7-8)

In the next part of our study we will look at another pair of questions and answers that contain some of the most powerful of God’s accusations against the human race.

Teaching Wisdom to Our Children (Pt 20)

The Desperate Need Of The Church Today (Pt 2)

Church

Last week we looked at the desperate need for passion in the Church today. Is there anything else we need? Yes! We need to understand that God’s Grace has made us free from the bondage of sin to serve Him freely and powerfully. We need to become servants of righteousness.

“What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.” Romans 6:15-18

Paul uses an excellent technique to emphasize and drive home his point — “What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.” This question is similar to the one Paul posed in verses 1 & 2 of chapter 6: “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid.”
