The Trek Thru Romans - Day 3
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?
Today, we need to think about the difference between your privilege/responsibility and your right/favor. It is huge!
Take a read through Romans 3 and ponder if this helps you understand a bit about the Jewish people’s situation because it is very similar to the Church’s today.
As a fellow sinner, don’t get discouraged. We are soon to climb to the peaks of grace with Paul.
Seeing myself clearly to appreciate grace,
David J. Collum

- Those who grow up in church who are exposed to God, His Word, and the Gospel have a great privilege in life. Does growing up in church and experiencing these privileges make one right with God? Why or why not?
- How does Romans 3:23 shatter the myth that many believe that all people are in general “good people”?
- Have you ever thought of yourself as a good person? What does Romans 3:23 say about you? Do you accept this assessment or reject this assessment of yourself?
- What questions do you have for the group so far as you study Romans?
