Witnessing Christ from the New Testament: Romans 1–6 - Truth in Love Ministry


Witnessing Christ from the New Testament: Romans 1–6

Episode Summary

In this episode of Witnessing Christ from the New Testament, Mark and Molly discuss Romans 1–6.

In the Book of Romans, we see that “The Gospel Creates New…” in the lives of believers. It brings awareness of sin and the need for God’s grace, understanding of God’s righteous judgment and the gift of justification by faith, hope in Christ’s redemption, peace with God, a new life empowered by the Spirit, freedom from sin and the law, inclusion, and unity, submission to authorities, acceptance and love for one another, and a compassionate ministry to others. The gospel transforms lives, creating a new identity in Christ and a close-knit community of believers grounded in the truth of God’s Word.

“I can do it on my own!” That thought is ingrained in us from childhood. How often don’t kids insist on taking on impossible tasks with false self-confidence—”I can do it on my own!” Life is often the slow realization that there are many things we can’t do on our own—including saving ourselves. Yet, how often don’t we insist on taking on the impossible task of saving ourselves with false self-confidence? “I’m getting better day by day, step by step.” “I’m trying to keep the commandments.” In other words, we say to God, “I can do it on my own!”

Know what God says? “You can’t! You’re sinful!” But God has a much better way. The Apostle Pauls tells us, “In the gospel, the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written, ‘The righteous will live by faith'” (Romans 1:17). 

The Bible’s great gospel message is that the righteousness (or perfection) we need to be saved doesn’t depend on us at all. It depends on Jesus—from first to last. We’re saved by faith from start to finish. From beginning to end. It’s not up to us to start our relationship with God. It’s not up to us to finish it. It all depends on God’s grace in Jesus! The next time you realize you can’t do it on your own, smile! You don’t have to. Jesus did! We’re saved by faith from first to last. (And even faith is a gift from God.)
