Romans VS: According to His Purpose

Romans VS: According to His Purpose

We’re back in Romans 8.28-30 this week.  We’ll be camping in this passage for the next several weeks as dig into the deep theology within.  Today we’ll be looking at how we should handle challenging topics with humility.

Focus Text: Romans 8.28-30

Key Points

    • Romans 11.33-36 (Who has known the mind of the Lord?)
    • Job 38.4 (Where were you?)
    • Titus 3.9-11 (Avoid foolish controversy.)

Questions to ask

  • What caused people to get offended and walk away from Jesus?
    • He was loving, healing, defending outcasts, changing lives.
  • Am I practicing humility when it comes to the Lord? to Scripture? the Gospel? to other Christians?
  • Am I distracting from the Gospel or aiding the spread of the Good News?
  • Are you putting speed bumps (stumbling blocks) in front or the gospel or in front of Jesus?
