2 Corinthians 7:1-11

A few years back Helga and I had an interesting experience on one of our Florida trips! Cruising along, mile after mile, we had to take an exit for a different road near Ocala. The problem was that we weren’t really paying attention, so we took the exit that seemed right without thinking about it…

Psalm 51

As we sit between our studies of 1st Corinthians and 2nd Corinthians, we will be taking a break from the beloved Apostle Paul, and instead talk about King David and Psalm 51! For some Psalm 51 is familiar territory. For others, you will be in for a treat! Psalm 51 is a song (poetry) written…

1 Corinthians 5:1-13

This week as we enter the fifth chapter of 1st Corinthians, Paul has a difficult topic to handle with the immature Corinthian church: discipline in the body. The issue is blatant and unrepentant sexual sin, and the response of the church has been to boast at their openness and grace to this troubling issue, that…

Romans 8:1-11

We are now entering Romans 8, which is just a continuation of what the apostle Paul has been discussing in Chapter 7: we are in the “Power Plant” — where we discover the power source for living the Christian life! We know it is in not in our own power to live a life pleasing…

Romans 7:7-25

This next section in Romans chapter 7 is for every Christian that feels liken they are failing to be a “good Christian”. Is your experience unique? Is there something wrong with you?

Romans 6:15-23

Have you ever felt like your life is out of control? Have you ever felt the frustration of doing something even though you really don’t want to do it? As we step into the second half of Romans chapter 6, Paul deals with control issues. You will no doubt determine to control yourself in the…

Romans 6:1-14

Leaving the courtroom, we are now entering the “power plant” at the beginning of Romans chapter six. Paul starts by answering a question that might immediately surface after we learn God’s grace overflows where sin abounds: well then, why not sin so that grace might “super-abound!?” But, the truth is that we are in a…

Romans 5:12-21

The second half of Romans chapter five could be summed up as “Two men in a one act play.” Paul uses the picture of “two Adams”; a first Adam, the Adam in the garden, bringing original sin into humanity, and then the “second Adam”–Jesus Christ–who provides a remedy for this sin. Listen in as Pastor…

Romans 3:21-31

The first three chapters of Romans have led us to this crescendo–there is no one righteous before God: not the religious person, not the atheist; no one! The reason Paul led us to that point is to reveal the beauty of the gospel: it is by faith in Jesus we are rescued from this divide…
