Therefore, how shall we live?
A Study in Romans ch12-14
The book of Romans is probably one of the most encouraging, yet challenging letters written by the Apostle Paul. He begins by declaring that 'he is not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes'. The truth regarding our sinful and unrighteous state before God is laid bare, then the good news of the Gospel is pronounced by the words 'while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us'. The result of the death and resurrection of Christ now means that 'there is therefore no condemnation to those who are in Christ' and there is now indeed nothing that 'shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord'.
With this in mind, action is demanded and so in Chapters 12-14 of Romans, Paul then explains how we as believers in Christ ought to live in the light of God's great mercy to us.
