This week we will begin a journey through Romans 8 by focusing our attention on the true freedom described in the first four verses.
APEX – The tip, point or summit of anything.
Over the next three weeks, we will journey through what many believe to be the APEX of the entire Word of God, Romans 8.
It all begins in verse 1 with, “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Never has there been better, more encouraging and comforting words ever written.
Warren Wiersbe said of this chapter,
Romans 8 is the Declaration of Independence for the Christian.
Wiersbe also said, “Romans 8 is the greatest chapter…in the greatest letter ever written.” It was written by the greatest missionary and perhaps the greatest Christian who ever lived, the Apostle Paul.
The Bible Knowledge Commentary says of this passage, “In chapter 8, Paul describes the ministry of the indwelling Holy Spirit of God who is the source of divine power for sanctification and the secret for spiritual victory in daily living.”
Pastor John Piper even wrote about seven reasons why he believes Romans 8 is the greatest chapter in the Bible!
Prepare and Pray
This will be a life-altering series for you and me if we will just ask God to give us ears to hear and eyes to see! I invite you to invest some time in this text and in prayer before Friday. And then show up ready to buckle your seat belt tight as we go for a wild ride together!
I cannot wait to unwrap this together and I look forward to seeing you on Friday,
“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” – Romans 8:1-4
“… For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out.” – Romans 7:18
“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” – John 8:36
