In Romans 6:1-11 Paul reminds us of what happened when we trusted in Christ. In our baptism a transformation occurred, a death and resurrection. Since we died in Christ we have also been raised in Christ. We are no longer slaves to sin and death. Instead, we now have a new master, Jesus Christ our redeemer.
Josiah will continues our Too Much & Not Enough series with a message from Romans 3:21-30. Join us as we unfold the ultimate surprise of human existence – God’s provision of grace for sinners who look to Christ in faith – and consider it’s impact on our lives and future.
From Romans 3:9-20. Paul’s statement, “None of us is righteous, not even one” is clear and could be depressing apart from the good news: the only human being who was sinless, Jesus Christ, has become the righteousness of God for us.

We seem to be born with it–the notion of God’s existence. Perhaps this is why the Bible assumes or declares the existence of God rather than spilling ink to prove it, then continues to teach us how to respond to that reality. Certainly we could all use more knowledge of God but as for knowledge essential for accountability, we have enough. The challenge is love and obedience.
