God's Amazing Story of Relentless Grace
The book of Roman is a masterfully written exposition on grace. This letter to the believers in Rome has changed the hearts of many as they read and understand the wonderful truths nestled inside. Paul wrote this letter to these Christians to explain his revelation of grace.
Romans 1 covers Paul's introduction to the book of Romans as well as building a case against the entire world that we were guilty before God. The reason for writing the book of Romans was to share the gospel and teach that our righteousness comes by faith in Jesus Christ apart from what we can do to earn it.
Romans 2 is written to admonish the Jews that living by the law and circumcision does not make them righteous in God's eyes. This comes as quite a shock, but Paul stresses that living by rules and regulations only brings about judgment and condemnation. Paul concludes that a true Jew is one that has experienced circumcision of the heart by the Spirit of God.

Today marks a special day for me as I have finished blogging about the book of Romans. This past year has been an incredible joy as I have studied and written about these wonderful truths and have been brought into deeper understanding of grace through faith in Jesus. As subscribers to this blog, I pray that you also have experienced a quickening in your spirit that has changed your perspective on God's grace and mercy toward you in the person of Jesus Christ. I trust this revelation has changed your life.
Exploring Hebrews, the Bridge between the Old and the New
I am excited to announce that the next blog topic will be an in-depth look at the book of Hebrews. Most Christians I talk to, do not understand the differences between the Old and New Covenants and live somewhere between them, mixing and matching. However the differences between the two are much more than the one page in your Bible that separates them. The differences are vast. Understanding our covenant as New Testament believers is imperative to the health of your relationship with God.
The book of Hebrews is the bridge between the two covenants, explaining and showing us how Jesus fulfilled the types and shadows of the Old Covenant so that we can live under the new. I pray that you will continue this journey with me as we learn about our faithful high priest who lives to make intercession for us. We will also learn about total forgiveness, boldness in approaching God, faith and dwelling in a constant state of Sabbath rest as his chosen people. I know as you join me in this journey your heart, like mine, will be forever changed.
