All in Online Bible Study
Note: After TODAY, you'll be 25% done! Keep up the great work. This week we are tackling Romans 4-8. The following two weeks, we will trek through four chapters a week.
How are you doing? You are three chapters in. You can do this. You can read Romans with me. Keep it up! Take your time! If you were on a hike, I would make sure of a few things.
Have you consumed some water?
How about a snack?
Are you resting?
Are you looking at the views?
Legal arguments can be a bit dizzying. Take it slow—we are only doing four days a week so you can go back a read and think about each chapter a bit more.
St. Paul tackles his own people—the Jews. If you read the Big Picture Story of the Bible from the Introduction, you will understand why this is such an important question.
Let me just ask you to think about being the Best Man or Maid/Matron of Honor at a wedding. What is your responsibility?
What do you think? Do we need a Savior? For those folks who think, "No, we just need some help," Chapter two is for you. St. Paul would call you the “law keepers”, people trying to prove they are good. They don’t generally murder folks, etc. In his day, they were Jewish people. In our day it is mostly church-goers. Yup, this chapter is for us church-goers.
You may remember I said you were going to have to think about yourself.
You are going to read that this letter is written to explain why the “Gospel”, the “Good News about Jesus”, is the Power of God to Save People.
Which then begs the question—do you think there is a God, and if so, do you think you need to be Saved not from Him but for Him?
I know you might be looking up, thinking “Do I really want to read Romans?” Let me tell you, we can do it.
Below are some notes I have written about what we are starting.
Theologians love this letter, but let me just remind us (me and you), this is a letter, and St. Paul wrote it to people... not theologians!
Do you want to prepare yourself to get the most out of celebrating the resurrection of Jesus? If so, we have the answer for you! Join us and other League Members for a 16-lesson engaging and life transforming study through the book of Romans written by The League’s CEO, David Collum.
