Pastor Dave York wraps up our study of Romans. We’ll read Romans 8:31-39 to see this big idea: Because of our union with Christ, God is for us, and nothing can separate us from His love and care.
Pastor Dave Ruble reads from Romans 8:26-30. There, He will show this big idea: The promised gift of the Holy Spirit is unceasingly at work in perfect union with God the Father and the Son in the lives of His chosen ones from predestination to glorification; from before the cradle to beyond the grave.
Pastor Dave York is back to bring us a message from Romans 8:12-15. Here’s the big idea:Because of our union with Christ, the Spirit of God resides within us. He is at work daily work in us, reminding us that we are God’s children and that we have a future hope.
Pastor Dave Quilla reads from Romans 8:1-11 to show us this big idea: Our union with Christ frees us from the fear of condemnation. The requirements of the law were fulfilled based on the performance of Christ, not our performance. We are now free to live by the spirit which gives us the power and desire to obey the law.
Perry Sorensen reads from Romans 7:1-6 to draw out this big idea: Just as death dissolves legal obligation to one’s spouse in a marriage, the Law is dissolved when the Christian “dies” with Christ. Because we have a new “union” with Christ, the Holy Spirit gives us a new status, a new power, and new security so that we can serve God’s Kingdom.
Pastor York continues reading Romans 6:1-14 to point out this big idea: Our union with Christ means that we died to sin with Christ and we are raised to live in a brand new way with Christ. Sin no longer has power over us.
