The most fundamental truth that is tested in our lives when hard times come to us is whether God is for us. Behind that statement is whether God truly loves us which will bring us the urgently needed assurance and stability in the midst of an unstable world.God's promises for the Christian are unsearchable, and they can all be packaged in the statement: God is for us. Listen to this message on Romans 8:31-39 by Pastor Raphael on Easter.
The missional reality of each believer must be modeled after Jesus. In Mark 6:30-44 we see Jesus's compassion, and he feeds the crowd and also satisfies them. Through the gospel God feeds us and satisfies us. We are then able to learn from Jesus's compassion and show compassion instead of frustration.
Today we continued in our series Life In The Spirit from Romans 8. Romans 8:28-30 delivers the amazing promise that God is at work, through our trials and troubles and even sins, to produce a good in His children that is described as "glorious" - being conformed to the image of Christ! Hope you have a great week.
Today we continued in our series Life In The Spirit from Romans 8. As we examined Romans 8:14-17 it is evident that the greater privilege of the gospel is not that we are freed from our sins but also that we are adopted by God. We hope you have a wonderful week.
Today we continued in our series Life In The Spirit from Romans 8. As we examined Romans 8:12-13 it is evident that a new relationship with God means a new relationship with our old way of living; following our old way of life will cost me everything and putting it to death through the Spirit will gain me true life.
We are still in the series on Romans 8: Life in the Spirit. Today we look at Romans 8:9-11, taught by our Elder Larry Stout. The gospel is the gift of eternal life that is experienced through the Holy Spirit. The work of the Holy Spirit is to bring us into the reality of being “in Christ.”
