Kindness is Presence (Romans 12:9-210

Kindness as presence means being present in life's ordinary and extraordinary moments. Kindness as presence is the power of being there.

Life in Christ (Galatians 3:25-27)

Faith for Paul is deeper than many of us see. For Paul, faith is born out of loss and pain. "I have been crucified with Christ, it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me."

Suffering and Glory (Romans 8:12-28)

It is hard many times to see that suffering and glory have strong relationship in our lives. Biblically, there is a beautiful relationship. Today, Paul reminds us that the victory Jesus won was not over suffering, but rather through suffering.

No Condemnation (Romans 8:1-11)

Romans 8 is one the greatest single chapters in our Bibles. Paul is beginning to fulling develop his statements in chapter 8. We, the people of God, are to be people no longer in dwelt by sin, but rather the Spirit.

The Dimensions of Salvation (Romans 6:22-23)

John Wesley saw three dimensions of salvation in Romans 6:22. 1) Freed from sin 2) Freed from the plague of sin (sanctification) 3) Eschatologically free from all evidence of sin (eternal life).

Not Ashamed (Romans 1:16-17)

We began a new series today on the most theologically rich books in the Bible- Romans. The beauty of Romans is unbelievably deep and complex. Join us this summer as we journey in Radical Grace.

The Exchange of Truth (Romans 1:25)

One of the core issues in our lives is summed up in a statement in Romans 1:25. "...they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator..." How have we, as people created by our Father, worshipped and served the creature rather than our Father?

Righteousness of God (Romans 3:21-31)

We are in darkness and we desperately need the light.

Because of God's Love (Romans 5:1-5)

Romans 5 reminds us to "rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope..."

United with Christ (Romans 6:1-11)

Paul draws from his understanding of the Old Testament as he writes to the Romans. The Exodus is a central story in the lives of the people of God. God set his people free from the slavery of Egypt. Through Christ, God set his people free from the slavery of sin. Today, we explore these parallels.

Know Your Disease, Know the Cure (Romans 5:12-19)

Our fifth Article of Faith deals with sin. We have all sinned and are in need of a Savior.

Sanctifying Grace (Romans 5:1-5)

We wrap up our Easter series today. Sanctification is an important biblical doctrine where grace grows us into what God has designed us to be.

Welcoming Others (Romans 12:9-13)

A life of generosity includes opening our lives to other people. This openness leads to the opportunity to share truth in the lives of those God has given us.
