Let's Talk about Our Walk

Romans 8:1-10

Airs: November 27 - December 1

Everybody dreams of a fulfilled life—one that results in our reaching maximum potential with only a minimum amount of conflict and stress. But as we learned in Romans 7, such dreams are more ideal than real. Nevertheless, we still long to be less frustrated and less anxious in our walk with the Lord. Who doesn’t desire greater balance and more consistency? But is that possible? God’s answer is yes, but the outworking of His answer calls for drastic changes in our mental attitudes and the breaking of long-standing habits. These alterations that lead to an abundant life are humanly impossible; we simply cannot pull it off, no matter how hard we try! But Romans 8 offers good news: the fulfilled life is divinely possible through the power of Him who lives within us. The secret lies in simply allowing Him to take control and change our walk.

  • December 2 - December 3 Glorying and Groaning

    Once Paul got past the sinfulness of sin (Romans 1-3) and the grace of the Gospel (4-5), he focused our attention on the sanctification of the saint (6-8). That third subject reached its climax in Romans 8, where Paul emphasized the work of the Holy Spirit, especially what Jesus called the abundant life (John 10:10). As we learned in the previous message, life is made possible by His empowering us to live above the drag of the flesh.

  • December 4 - December 7 Providence Made Practical

    At long last, we have reached the climax of the first section of Romans. Finally, the truths we’ve gleaned thus far begin to come together. Now that we have acknowledged the essential and inescapable presence of suffering in our journey, we need strong words of encouragement and reassurance.

  • December 8 - December 10 Strengthening Your Grip on Purity

    “Pleasure is supreme.”…“Follow your feelings.”…“Do whatever makes you happy.”…“Purity? That went out with the Puritans!”

    These tag lines of our pleasure-obsessed society pulse from the media like a strobe light, mesmerizing us into a state of moral apathy. Sitcoms depict abstinence as fit for only the undesirable or the immature. And advertisements blatantly seduce us into acquiring absolutely everything our hearts desire.

  • December 11 - December 15 Simplicity Starts from Within

    Though centuries have passed since He spoke them, Jesus’ words remain just as penetrating as when they first fell on the ears of His original audiences. Because He alone spoke with anointed authority, people were amazed as they listened and ultimately became changed individuals.
