Attributes of a Living Sacrifice

October 3, 2023

Unfortunately, when the first trial comes - as they most certainly will - the new believer often finds discouragement and feelings of abandonment. On today’s Dwelling Place, we’ll see the apostle Paul working to dispel this notion in the Book of Romans.

Throughout the Bible, the people of Israel consistently rejected Jesus as the Messiah. So, in response, has God given up on the nation of Israel?   Some suggest He has. But in Romans, chapter eleven, the apostle Paul says otherwise.  We’ll see what he had to say in just a moment.  Welcome to today’s edition of The Dwelling Place.  We’re about to see how God feels about His chosen people, and I think you’ll be greatly encouraged as we place the spotlight on the grace and patience of our Lord.

Pastor Al is in the middle of a study in Romans, and the plan today is to spotlight chapter eleven.  You might recall in chapter ten, we were talking about Israel’s stubborn refusal to believe in Christ, and so a logical question on the heals of that is, “Is God through with them as a nation?”  Far from it.  The Lord has a wonderful plan to reach Israel, and chapter eleven makes that clear to us.

As believers, we can have confidence in what God has promised, because we know that God never makes a promise He won’t keep.

We are nearing the end of a verse by verse journey through one of the greatest books in the bible - Paul’s letter to the Romans. Challenging is an understatement when it comes to the words we read here. Romans has been described as the Magna Carta of the Christian faith. Today we’ll continue in chapter fifteen, and a message all about hope - abounding  hope!

Today on The Dwelling Place,  we continue studying one of the most amazing chapters in the bible - Romans fifteen. In Romans fifteen, verses eight through thirteen, we discover that we are to place our hope in the Lord, and not in man. The result will be everlasting peace.

Hope is our subject on today’s broadcast, and our text is Romans fifteen verses one through seven. What this sinful world really needs is a good dose of hope through salvation in Christ, wouldn’t you agree?

Today On the Dwelling Place, pastor Al Pittman takes us to Romans chapter fifteen, and a message titled “Hope For The Weak”. we are going to spend a couple of weeks in this great chapter, and today, we will see just how great a hope we have in the Lord - despite our weakness.

Today on The Dwelling Place, we bring to a close pastor Al Pittman’s new series in Titus, titled “Setting Things in Order”. The title of today’s message is “Conduct Becoming a Christian”. We have a choice to make in every situation we find ourselves in - do I do it God’s way, or the world’s way? And we have to remember - the world is watching!

In Romans chapter fourteen we’ve learned lately about our relationship to other believers in matters of secondary importance.  Things that fall into the realm of Christian liberty.  It could be the music we listen to, or entertainment, the length of your hair, the food we eat, alcohol, or even smoking.  It’s not necessary for all Christians to agree on these issues, but they often are the center of great conflict and disagreement.  So let’s turn to Romans fourteen and see how to be pleasing to the Lord, and loving toward others.

The New Testament knows nothing of isolated believers; wherever you find Christians you find them together.  But that can create some difficulties because of our differences.  Not on essentials but non essentials. Someone once described it as “majoring on the minors”. Pastor Al will be in Romans chapter fourteen.
