The Trek Thru Romans - Day 6
I don’t know about you, but when someone is trying to convince me of something, a lot of times in my head I am saying, “Yeah, but what about this...” Sometimes people say, “Yeah, but aren’t all Christians hypocrites?”. Or, “Yeah, but if God is so forgiving, why doesn’t everybody get a pass?” The list goes on. In this Legal Letter, St. Paul deals with these.
Trusting in Jesus with no “ifs, ands, or buts” about it,

- Do you find it intimidating to read the parts of the Bible (like Romans) that seem very intellectual or hard to understand? What are some practices that have been helpful for you to understand the difficult parts of the Bible?
- The Bible isn’t just an intellectual treatise. God’s Word is personal and relational. How has the power of the Gospel personally impacted your life? In other words, how has the grace of the Gospel delivered you from the power of sin in your life?
- Christians are forgiven of their sin and saved from the power of sin. But Christians still sin. What should be the response of a Christian when he or she sins?
- How does the Gospel and the grace of God motivate believers to live lives unto God and not unto self or unto sin?
