Holy Anticipation part 1

July 22, 2019

According to Romans eight, verses 19 through 25, we should be eagerly anticipating the renewal and transformation of ourselves and everything around us. To see a blighted area of town get renewed and upgraded is a wonderful thing, but when renewal happens in a person's life, that's truly amiracle.Today’s message is part of pastor Al’s verse by verse series through Romans.

As Christians, we delight in the law of God. Unbelievers don’t care about God’s law - they couldn’t care less. And though it’s a battle - ultimately there is victory! Today on The Dwelling Place we’ll be encouraged in the fight.

When we come to Christ, does that mean all of a sudden we stop sinning?  Well First John makes it clear that if we claim to be without sin we’re a liar.  While we’re certainly not sinless, we will sin less than before we met our Savior.

Moses gave three hundred sixty five prohibitions and two hundred forty eight positive commands. David reduced them to eleven in the Psalms, Isaiah made them six, Micah binds them into three commands, and finally Habakkuk reduces them all to one great statement: The just shall live by faith. Living by faith has great freedom, but it also has great responsibilities. We’re in Romans seven, and today pastor Al underscores the freedom we have from the law.
