ROMANS 15 STUDY AND COMMENTARY

Yet again, we would discuss Romans 15 which talks about the weak brother and the strong brother Romans 15:1-2– In Chapter 14, Paul encourages the strong to bear the scruples(weaknesses) of the weak. He says the strong should please the weak but for edification purposes. He didn’t mean please others and displease God, but please others in such a way that aids spiritual growth. In Chapter 14:15-17, Paul tells us …

ROMANS 14 STUDY AND COMMENTARY

Romans 14 emphasises on spiritual growth as do other chapters Romans 14:1– Paul says we should receive believers who are weak in faith. The Greek word for “weak” is “astheneō” and could refer to physical or spiritual weakness. The next two words let us know which one Paul was referring to, “in faith”, so it’s a spiritual weakness, just like the one spoken of in Romans 8:26. The weak ones …

Romans 11- Salvation for all men Romans 11:1– Paul tells the Jews that they aren’t excluded from salvation. They may have thought that since the Gentiles could get saved, they wouldn’t be a part of God’s plan anymore, but Pail tells them it’s not so. 11:2-5– Paul reminds them how God had preserved 7,000 people in the days of Elijah at the time when Paul wrote the book of Romans. …

ROMANS 12 STUDY AND COMMENTARY

Romans 12- Believers’ Edification Romans 12:1– Paul urges believers to live their lives as worship unto God, offering our bodies as a living sacrifice. This is like what Paul said in Romans 6:13, we should give our membership instruments of righteousness. If sacrifices were offered in the temple and our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, it only makes sense that our bodies are living sacrifices. Romans 12:2– When …

ROMANS 10 BIBLE STUDY AND COMMENTARY

The beauty of the Gospel- Romans 10 Romans 10:1– Paul kept praying for the salvation of the Jews, not because they did not know God but they put their trust in themselves and in the law, just as we saw in Romans 9. Romans 10:2– The Jews had a zeal of God, which was well-known but it wasn’t according to knowledge. Zeal, in itself, is not bad but it isn’t …

ROMANS 8 STUDY AND COMMENTARY

At the end of Romans 7, Paul thanks God that salvation from the body of death comes through Jesus Christ. In Romans 8, we see how the love of Christ is demonstrated. 8:1– The Greek word for condemnation is “katakrima” which is pronounced as kat-ak-ree-mah, meaning an adverse sentence. There is no condemnation to them in Christ; when you are saved, you are in Christ forever. It is the reality …

Now in Romans 6 and 7, we would talk about how we could stop sinning while in grace. Chapters 1-3 talk about how all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

Understanding Romans_ Chapter Four Commentary
bible study faith romans

A Guide to Romans Bible Study and Romans Commentary || Chapter 4

Chapter 3 ends on the note saying that it is the law of faith that enables us to fulfill the law and Chapter 4 encompasses GRACE. So far, Paul has pointed out the fact that salvation is by faith and faith alone, he talks about the ungodly nature of men who have chosen to have reprobate minds and how God has given them up to their reprobate minds. In Chapter 3, we see Paul talk of 2 categories of people; the Jews and the Gentiles. The Jews were the people whom God had given the laws and told His promise, for this they felt like a special kind of people, judging others and being hypocritical. The second set of people, the Gentiles, were the ones who did not know or serve God and were regarded as outsiders and not God’s people. But Paul tells us that all the people, Jew or non-Jew had all fallen short of the glory of God, none was good and all needed saving. And this salvation could only come through faith and not works. In Chapter 4, he uses 2 examples to support his statement, Abraham and David.

Understanding Romans_ Chapter Two Commentary

A Guide to Romans Bible Study and Romans Commentary || Chapters 2 & 3

Romans Chapter 2 talks about how the Jews seem to judge others because they think they have a special relationship with God, teaching and instructing the ignorant but yet, do not practice what they preach. He simply points out the fact that the law is not what makes us right with God What then does? Let’s look at Chapter 3.

Understanding Romans_ Chapter One Commentary
bible study faith romans

Bible Study and Commentary || ROMANS 1

The book of Romans is the longest and the clearest exposition by the Apostle Paul on the Gospel. This book contains the doctrinal foundation for the Christian faith, and it is for this reason that it was arranged first in order among the New Testament epistles. The truths presented here must be understood before proceeding to other doctrinal matters. In this letter, Paul dealt with a larger number of doctrinal issues than in any other of his epistles. His treatment of the doctrine of salvation by grace through faith was so masterfully done that its divine inspiration cannot be questioned.

Being Christian and single can be really tiring, very tiring actually. And impatience is a very common trait with singleness and the popular question, “God when?”.

The right way to express love

Let Your Words Find Expression

The right way to express love was shown to us by Christ. Question: What if Christ only came to earth to say “I love you” and then He just ascended right back up to heaven? Would we truly understand? Pause. Don’t answer yet. As Christians, we tend to live our lives with more of a ‘mind your business’ attitude, which is totally fine. But! If the person who talked to …

What Are You Feeding On?

Are you feeding on the word of God? Many times we would have heard this, What you feed is what grows. OR You are what you eat. I’m here to tell you that it’s very true. As a Christian, the times you spend not praying or studying are the times you’re most vulnerable. You might not want to hear it but it’s true. It’s easier to fall into temptation at …

SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Emphasis on Spiritual Growth

I’ll start by saying this spiritual growth can never be over-emphasized. It’s as important as the air you breathe. Why? Others are depending on you for growth. 😱 You did not see that coming but it’s so true. When you grow spiritually, things become easier for you and that includes preaching the Gospel of Christ. Spiritual growth is actually never convenient, it takes a lot of time and effort: intentionality, …
