WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW WHERE YOUR MIND IS TAKING YOU?

Do you ever stop and think about where you are going? Where is your mind taking you? Would you like to know the answer to these question? Follow CTTT as we study Romans 8:5-11. The answers are just a few words away!

What is the mark of a true believer? Do you ever ask yourself this question? If you ask yourself this question where do you go to find the answer? Today we will look at Romans 8:5-11 to answer the question, “what is the mark of a true believer?” Looking at Romans 8:5-11 also answers the third question, “where do I go to find out what a true believer looks like?” The answer, the Word of God. I also want to add the Word of God is the only reliable place we can get our information. God has graciously and with a warning gave us everything we need to know.  We are without excuse. Placed between Paul’s worship of Christ and His setting the believer  free from their condemnation of sin he briefly stops to give  a picture of a true believer and an unbeliever.

THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE LAW ARE FULFILLED IN CHRIST!

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The requirements of the Law are fulfilled in Christ! Join CTTT as we do a Bible Study in Romans 8 and learn this marvelous truth. O, go and tell someone this truth!

Do you not know? Have you not heard? God did it! God sent His One and only Son in the likeness of sinful flesh as an offering for sin. Why did He do this? We read in Romans chapters 1-3 that men do not fear Him, they do not honor Him, and they exchanged His incorruptible glory for an image that is corruptible. {The man that Romans speaks of is me, and all humanity.} This man made image  will fade away but the God who always was, will always be! The God of heaven and earth, who man rejected, sent His Son to die for our sins and to accomplish in us what the Law could not do.

What are blaming for your sin? Romans 7:7-13 teaches that sin is our enemy not the law. Join CTTT as we do a Bible study in Romans.

Romans Lesson 20|Week-4|Day-3

Believers are no longer bound to Law. We have been joined to christ! We can now walk in newness of life. Join CTTT in our Bible Study in Romans.

In the beginning, God said, Let there be… and by the word of His power, there is. Then God said, “Let us make man in Our own image, according to Our Likeness. He formed man out of the dust of the ground and breathed the breath of life into Him. He placed the man in the garden of Eden to cultivate it and to keep it. He commanded the man saying, ” From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.” {Genesis 2:16-17}

{ARE YOU A SLAVE TO SIN OR A SLAVE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS?}

Romans Lesson 19|Week-3|Day-1

Do you ever question how you are living your life? Are you a slave to God or a slave to sin?

Paul begins Romans 6:16 with these words, “Do you not know?” He asks this question looking back at verse 15 addressing  those who might say, “hey we are not under the law but under grace, let’s continue in sin. Why not, grace will cover it, RIGHT?”  To help us understand and explain this un-truth Paul is going to use the word “slave” something that the believers in his day would have understood. Today, In order for us to understand what he is teaching we must read and study the Biblical texts and study the word that he used. So, let’s look at the word  Paul used in this text in order that we may have a good understanding of what he is teaching and also why he chose the word slave.

DID YOU KNOW DEATH IS WORTHY OF CELEBRATING?

{Week-1|Day-3|Romans Lesson-16&17}

I do not normally celebrate a death. How about you? But according to the Bible there is great reason to celebrate our death. Please join Conforming To The truth as we study inductively through Romans. Print your Free Bible study today.

As I was reading through Romans 6:1-11  in preparation for this post, I noticed the words die, death, died and dead appeared  in 9 of the eleven verses. I could not help myself, I had to count them! I found these words, collectively, recorded {for us} 18 times! We know that when a writer repeats a word  in Scripture he is trying to teach us something.  I do believe that God through the Spirit is flashing a bright light right before our eyes trying to get our attention. It has my attention, what about you?

WHAT IS THE ONE STEP OF SANCTIFICATION?

Did you know that you have died to sin once for all? Please join conforming To The Truth as we study inductively through a Bible Study in Romans. We are learning we are alive to God but dead to our sin!

To understand progressive sanctification or the work of the Holy Spirit that transforms us more and more into the likeness of Christ,  I believe it is most important for us to know and understand the act of being set apart as holy unto God or as I will refer to it, “the one-time act of sanctification.” Paul says in Romans 6:3 “Do You not Know”. We need to know and understand what Christ has accomplished on the cross! Our discussion will center around our being set  apart unto God and making us aware of the death that has taken place in us at our conversion.

{ROMANS LESSON 16-WEEK-1-DAY-1}

watts-1012402_1280

WHAT IS THE GIFT OF CHRISTMAS?

WEEK-4| DAY-1| LESSON 14&15|

bokeh-1033287_1920

The book of Romans does not open with the birth of  baby Jesus, wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.  It does not give an account of three wise men following the star to Bethlehem. There is no mention of gifts for the baby Jesus. We do not have an account of Mary and Joseph, but we do have the story of Christmas!

WHAT ARE THE FOUNDATION STONES OF THE GOSPEL?

WEEK-3|DAY-3| LESSON- 13

What are the foundation stones of the gospel? Join Conforming To The Truth in an inductive Bible study in the book of Romans to learn the answer to this question.

Paul moves back and forth in his teaching, with the corruption of man, the love of God, the work of Jesus Christ; the corruption of man, the love, and justice of God, the work of Jesus Christ. Each time giving us a better understanding of where we were as lost sinners and the need for the grace of God through the perfect sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ. Paul taught in the first three chapters of Romans the corruption, the depravity of man. He taught in the first chapter of Romans God’s wrath on mankind because of their corruption and their irreverent fear of Him.

ARE YOU PRAISING GOD FOR YOUR TRIBULATION?

Did you know that all of your tribulations are producing fruit? Join conforming To The truth as we do an inductive Bible study in the book of Romans to see what fruit our tribulations are producing.

Paul ends Romans 5:2 with us exalting and praising God for the hope that we have received through the atoning work of Christ. It is easy to praise God for the works of Christ. After all, He is the One who took on our punishment and suffered and died. We have received all that God requires for salvation, no works required. There is much to praise God for. We should never forget or take for granted what God in Christ has done for those who believe! But, when we look further into this passage we learn that not only are we to glory in God for His gift of grace but we are also to exult or glory in our tribulations!

BELIEVERS ARE SECURE IN THE GRACE OF GOD!

 WEEK-3|DAY-1| LESSON 13

Will you praise God with us as we study inductively through Romans and learn that we are secure in God's Love!

Paul begins Romans 5 with the word “therefore”. He is pointing us back to chapter 4 where he spent much time  teaching and discussing justification through faith alone! There is no work on our part that is either accepted or required.  This in itself should cause all believers everywhere to jump for joy and find complete rest!

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF CHRIST’S RESURRECTION?

It is so important to understand the resurrection of our Lord and Savior! Please join us in our Bible Study of Romans as we walk through the word to learning what God teaches us. 

Today as we walk through Romans 4:24-25 I want us to think about the importance of Christ’s resurrection from the dead. Believe it or not, there are many so-called “professing Christians” who do not believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ! This fact is central to Christianity. Without it, our faith is worthless. Look at what 1 Corinthians 15:16-17 teaches:

DO YOU KNOW SCRIPTURE IS WRITTEN FOR ENCOURAGEMENT?

All of the Scriptures are written for our encouragement! We are doing an inductive Bible Study in Romans to be encouraged through the word.

Romans 4:23-24  teaches us that His words have been written for the sake of Abraham and for our sake as well. Before we move on I want to give a little reminder about the context. These passages are teaching that our righteousness comes through faith, not by works,  This dear one is the main point of the Gospel. Over, and over, and over, God,  through the Holy Spirit is prompting Paul to teach and remind this truth.  Our salvation is completely  the work of the Trinity. We need only to believe!  Let’s read Romans 4:23-24 together:

THE PROMISE OF GRACE IS REALIZED THROUGH FAITH!

DAY-1| WEEK-2| LESSON 11

The promise of God's grace is realized through faith, not our works. Come join us in an inductive Bible study in the Book of Romans as Paul teaches us what grace through faith really means.

To further tear down the idea that one must work to earn their salvation, or that those who were under the Mosaic Law were counted as righteous,  Paul turns our attention back to the Old Testament using Abraham, again, as the example. To refresh our memory to what blessing  Paul is referring  in verse 9,  we will need to go back up into what was  previously written. Verse 6 teaches that David speaks of the blessing on the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works. Having broken the Law of God David understood in His heart that his works of keeping the Law condemned him. For he did not, nor could he keep the Law.

DAY-2| WEEK-1| LESSON 11

What a blessing to know that we do not have to work for our salvation! Join Conforming To The truth as we do an inductive Bible Study in the book of Romans and learn to rest in the work of Christ.

In  verses 21-26 Paul lays out the work that Christ did on the cross to teach us that justification comes through His work  and not our own attempts at working. For all those who believe, the righteousness of God comes through faith in Jesus Christ.
