Romans 12:1-2by Alan Sherban
Unity in the local church comes only because of the ministry of the Gospel to the people of God. The Gospel unifies God's people because it transforms them, because it consecrates them, and because it demands it of them.
Romans 1:4by Alan Sherban
The resurrection of Jesus is the foundation for his presentation to the universe as the Son-of-God-in-power. Most importantly we should regard his resurrection and ascension as the means by which Christ receives his rightful exaltation.
Romans 8:31-39by Alan Sherban
The prospect of our future glory leaves us with present reasons to have courage in the face of our sufferings.
Romans 8:18-30by Alan Sherban
Paul contends for the fact that our present suffering is not worthy to even be compared to the glory that will be revealed. If this is true, our perspective on the trials of this life should filter through the lens of God's good purposes for future glory.
Romans 8:28-39by Alan Sherban
In case there is any confusion concerning the true nature of Justification, the idea of Soli Deo Gloria (to God alone be glory) will clearly illumine the fact that he alone is glorified in that he alone accomplishes and applies everything the sinner needs, apart from any cooperation.
Romans 4by Alan Sherban
Justification refers to God considering a sinner to be fit for fellowship with him, and he grants this status solely upon the basis of the person and work of Christ, through the means of faith alone apart from any human work at all.
Romans 10:17by Alan Sherban
The Bible and the Bible alone is the sole authority for all matters concerning the souls of mankind and the Church of Christ. We know this perhaps most vividly from the fact that by no other means can we be saved than through the Word of Christ.
