Pastor Post - May 2, 2018

What an awesome blessing it is to walk through Romans with you, and the best is yet to come! Soon we will be in “The Great Eight,” the incredible 8th chapter of Romans. 

But before then, we will enter the deep waters of Romans 7. These 25 verses are among the most talked about and written about by biblical scholars. There are some interpretive challenges, for sure. 

For instance: Who is Paul talking about in verses 14-23? Yes, he uses the first person singular, which would suggest that he is talking about himself. But as we will see on Sunday, it’s not that simple. 

Although there is a certain amount of mystery in this text, the main point is very clear: The gospel of Jesus changes hearts! So be reading over Romans 7:1-25 as we prepare to talk about “New Way Versus Old Way.” 

I’m so thankful we are seeing that in our church. It is such a wonderful thing to be a part of a church family where people are being saved, lives are being changed, and missions to the ends of the earth are generously supported. Never take it for granted. Cherish it and seek to be the kind of healthy church member that builds a healthy church family. 

I love being your pastor, and serving the King with you. 

By His Grace, For His Glory, To The Nations,
