Back in Romans this Sunday! + Weekly Announcements
Happy New Year! I’m looking forward to seeing you all this Sunday as we get back into Romans! Specifically, we’ll begin to unpack chapter 7, one of the more challenging and debated chapters in the whole letter. The issue at hand is the role of the Law in the Christian life.
I know I say it often, but this is not a text that you want to hear taught on without reading it over and over for yourself. I encourage you to spend time wrestling with Romans 7 as we plod through it together in the coming weeks. It’s thick and at times a little complicated, but God has given us His Spirit and promised to help us understand. So let’s get after it! This Sunday we’ll look specifically at Romans 7:1–6. See you soon!
Grace and peace,
