ROMANS 8: 18-25 I reckon that the sufferings of this present age are nothing in comparison with the splendour that will be revealed to us; for the creation peers ahead eagerly towards the unveiling of God’s children.The universe was made subject to frailty, not by its own decision, but by the One who subjected it, […]

In view of that, brothers and sisters, we are under obligation, but not to our flesh and blood, to live by their power; for if you live by their power you will die, but if by the Spirit you kill the habits of the body, you will live.Everyone who is guided by the Spirit is […]

ROMANS 8 There is now no death-sentence on those who share the life of Messiah Jesus, for the Law of the Spirit of life has freed you,- in Messiah Jesus- from the law of Sin and Death. What the Law could not do because it was enfeebled by flesh and blood, God has done by […]

ROMANS 6: 1-11 So am I saying that we should keep on sinning so that God’s favour may increase? Certainly not! If we’ve “died” to sin, how can we still live in it? Don’t you know that all of us who have been baptised into Messiah Jesus were baptised into his death? We were buried […]

ROMANS 5: 9-end If now, in his blood, we have been made into just people, how much more shall we be rescued by him from God’s anger! For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his son, so much more now we shall be rescued by his life.Not […]

ROMANS 5 So, since we have been made into just people by our trust, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Messiah. Through his faithfulness we also have a way into this divine goodwill in which we stand and boast – in hope! – of the glory of God. Not only that, we […]
