God's Sovereignty, Part 2  

Ron Moore continues our look at Romans and the questions that arise when we try to reconcile the sovereignty of God and the responsibility of man. We'll look at some attempts throughout history to merge the two concepts. But, in the end, we'll be reminded that our final authority, and the basis of all our action, rests in the Word of God alone.

God's Sovereignty, Part 1  

Of the many mysteries surrounding God and His relationship with man, one is particularly relevant: If God is in complete control--if He is indeed sovereign--why does it also seem that we have a choice when it comes to serving Him? Ron Moore begins a look at this complex question by focusing on Paul's defense of God's sovereignty found in Romans.

More Than Conquerors  

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28 is a verse many have memorized and repeat often. Ron Moore helps us unpack this verse and shows how we can claim its promise even when things don't seem to be so good.

Eagerly Waiting  

In writing his letter to the Romans, Paul didn't want his readers to suffer any illusions about life as a Christian. Though an eternity with God in heaven is assured, life today will undoubtedly be unpleasant at times. But, as Ron Moore explains, it's that eternity that awaits that can help us find the strength to stand against whatever life throws at us today.

No Condemnation  

Is Christianity just a state of mind? Do we see the "glass" half-full instead of half-empty and that's the only difference? Paul says, absolutely not. Ron Moore continues in Romans with an examination of the believer's lifestyle in contrast to the lifestyle of the unbeliever. We'll find several ways in which the life of the believer is markedly different from the life of the unbeliever controlled by the sinful nature.

The War Within  

We know that over a lifetime, we can be spiritually victorious in the power of Christ. But what about over a morning--when the hopes and possibilities of 8:00 AM become failures and frustrations only an hour later? Paul had the same minute-by-minute struggles and doubts that we do, and in Romans 7 he lets out those frustrations. Ron Moore takes us through this chapter and shows how God is always greater than our doubts.

Recognizing Sin  

Throughout Paul's letter to the Romans, he makes it abundantly clear that we who believe in Christ are no longer bound to the Old Testament law. So, should we just ignore it? Ron Moore takes us to Romans chapter 6 for Paul's answer to this question. We'll learn the importance of holding on to the Old Testament how to keep our hearts focused on serving God, and not ourselves.

Gift of God  

There tends to be a lot of confusion when it comes to talking about how sin and salvation intersect. Why do believers keep on sinning even after they have "become a new creation"? Ron Moore continues our study of Romans by looking at the idea of sanctification, the process of becoming set apart. We'll also look at Paul's pointed response to those who wonder if it's okay to indulge in the old sinful lifestyle once in a while.

Dead or Alive  

There is limitless life-giving power available to the Christian. Power to live as Christ desires. Power to live in victory. So how come so many believers seem to stay stuck in their sinful behaviors? Ron Moore takes us to Romans 6 to highlight several truths about the new believer that will help us embrace the new life we have in Christ.

The Gift of Grace  

Ron Moore continues our examination of Paul's letter to the Roman's by considering the origins of sin in our world. We'll look at the results of Adam's sin back in Eden and find out why it was necessary for Jesus to die on the cross. And by understanding the grace that Jesus extended to sinners, we'll be encouraged to show grace to those in our lives.

The Road to Reconciliation  

One of the more astounding truths found in the Bible is not just that God exists, but that He wants to have a personal relationship with us. And in his letter to the Romans, Paul, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, explains how God has made that relationship possible. Ron Moore explores this miraculous relationship and help us understand how we can experience a life with Christ.

Trusting the Builder  

In his letter to the Romans, Paul puts a lot of emphasis on the life lived by faith in God as opposed to the life lived by faith in one's own accomplishments. But this wasn't a new concept. As Ron Moore continues our study in chapter 4, we'll look back at the life of Abraham and see how faith characterized the life of this important figure in Jewish history.

Righteousness through Faith  

Ron Moore takes us to Romans 3 for a look at a topic of great importance to all people: salvation. Why is it necessary, and how is it accomplished? We'll look closer at the work of Jesus on the cross and consider how we are called to respond. We'll be reminded that while from our perspective, salvation requires only belief, from God's perspective, it required an unimaginable sacrifice.

No Not One  

Is the New Testament teaching of salvation by faith new? Did God have one way to save the Jewish people and another way to save the rest of us? Or can we all find peace with God by doing good things and being good people? Ron Moore continues our study in Romans by looking at Paul's answers to these questions.

The Heart of the Matter  

It's natural to test the limits in our relationships. We all tend to figure out how to gain the approval of some, and how to avoid the wrath of others. But this is a dangerous attitude to bring into our relationship with Jesus. Ron Moore takes us to Romans 2 to examine Paul's uncompromising words to those who would try to impose limits and boundaries on God's unconditional love and offer of salvation.

No Excuse  

In a way, the Good News starts with bad news: we are all sinners bound for eternal judgment, and nothing we can do will impress God enough that He'll allow us into heaven. But, as Ron Moore explains, that was never our responsibility. Only God can forgive our sins, and it's up to us to understand and accept. And this is an offer available for everyone.

Reality or Rejection  

Paul begins his letter to the Romans with a bold declaration: "I am not ashamed of the Gospel." Because, Paul tells us, the Gospel holds God's plan for salvation. So, Ron Moore asks, if God provides salvation, what are we being saved from? We'll find out the answer and consider the ways God in His mercy can lead even the worst sinner to salvation.

God's Plan Revealed  

In his letter to the Romans, Paul tells his readers that he has been "set apart for the gospel of God." And though "gospel" was a common word in use back then, it took on special significance when applied to Jesus. Ron Moore shows us what was so significant about the good news of the Gospel and how it still impacts lives today.

Serving the Land  

Among the books of the Bible, the Book of Romans stands out from the rest as one of the most concise and thorough descriptions of the relationship between God and man. Bible Teacher Ron Moore begins a month-long study of this important book with a look at the Apostle Paul, the author of Romans. In looking at Paul's life, we'll see how God can use even the dark days of our life to prepare us for future service.

God, Who Are You in My Shaken World?
