June 4, Day 156 - Romans 1

Click here to go to Romans 1

Paul desired to see the Romans and that was his prayer.  In just finishing Acts we see that Paul did get his desire eventually. 

16 For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile. 17 This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.

I love this part of the passage, especially "This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight."  It's nothing we can do, it's through faith.

  1. Romans 1
    29b ...gossips...
    speaking about others what would not be spoken in front of the one spoken of; walk away from idle talk or... confront it?

    31 ...don’t keep promises...
    breaking promises, our word given; trustworthy to keep our word?

    sins against ourselves and against others; initiate or partakers?

    32 Although they know God’s judgment that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do these things but also approve of others who do them.

    sin has no degree; no big or little, no "oh, that's not so bad"

    Revelation 3
    15-16 I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!

    sin is sin
    sin separates us from God

    19 I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your indifference.

    Psalm 139
    23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
