We all have a great need for Christ, his forgiveness and his mercy. C. H. Spurgeon said, “I have a great need for Christ, and I have a great Christ for my need.”. Obedience to Christ is very important and a part of the Christian life. As we study in the book of Romans, we will find out that it says that If we sink our roots down deep into Romans 1–11, we’ll produce much fruit in our obedience.
Whatever passage you read, do these four things:
- Read it through
- Think it clear
- Pray it in
- Live it out
A.W Tozer said “Mercy is not something God has, but something God is.”, but how should we respond to God’s mercy?
- Response #1 to God’s Mercy: A Surrendered Life (vv. 1–2)
- Response #2 to God’s Mercy: A Serving Heart (vv. 4–8)
- Response #3 to God’s Mercy: A Spiritual Mind (vv. 9–21)
Never stop asking God for forgiveness . . . His mercy is always greater than your sins. If we try and fight our own battles, then God can’t fight them for us.
- The devil says, “Repay evil for good.”
- The world says, “Repay evil for evil and good for good.”
- But God says, “Repay good for evil
