So far in BSF we have done Romans chapter 1 to 3 and if I could summarise my thoughts, it would be:
- God’s gospel has transforming power and we should not be ashamed to proclaim it widely (Romans 1:16)
- God’s wrath is now being revealed – meaning, right now, right this moment but also one that great final day, it will be revealed against those who have not believed in Christ (Romans 1: 18 – 32)
- Not one of us is righteous. None of us can stand on our own and claim that we are not guilty of sin. None of us, not even one of us (Romans 2:10 – 11).
- The good news, no the great news is that we are justified by faith apart from the works of the Law and this applies to all, Jew and Gentile alike. We are free from the penalty of sin which is death and free to claim eternal life if we only believe.
Will you believe? And if you have believed, will you persevere in your Christian walk?
