Intro into Romans

Romans: The Bible Project

Sermon Notes:

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬

For I am not ashamed of the gospel (good news), because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. For in the gospel (good news)  the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:16-17‬ ‭NIV‬‬

The Good News is my life has been rescued into a Godly, powerful, conquering kingdom.

What are you clinging to for your security?

Sermon Reflection: 

To the People of the Cross, in Rome:
Whose feet bridge the gap between two worlds,
Who languish in the belly of the Beast,
In the broken midst of the World’s City -
For this is what Man’s Kingdom is like:
Where pride of power is taken by force,
Culture of arrogance advanced by sword;
A place where the oppressor wins
And Death defeats the stranded soul   
Some kingdom this is,
Where the God of Love is tortured in the street
And killed like a common thug.

To the People of the Cross, in Rome:
Remember the ripple that starts with stone -
The one these builders, in blindness, rejected.
You messengers of Love, remember His city -
For this is what God’s Kingdom is like:
Where power is shared and given away
Culture of compassion advanced by dying
And the oppressed are lifted up -
Not with striving, but Faith from first to last;
Some kingdom this is,
Where Love defeats Death,
And man is undone with a heart of flesh.
This is the Godly Revolution.
