Be done with have to. Now we can do.
Get free from obligation. Now there's liberation.
Max Lucado ushers us into this study of one of the richest theological works ever penned, the book of Romans. The core idea of Romans is that we are saved by grace, through faith. When we truly understand the privilege and power of grace, it sets us free from having to do good things, so that we can do good things. There's no more have to, instead there's I can do.
In this liberating study, Max focuses on several important themes:
- The reality, danger and power of sin - the deepest problem humans face (Romans 1-2).
- God's grace, which is real, amazing, available to all (Romans 3-5).
- God has set us free, but the battle with sin continues - becoming like Jesus demands continual surrender (Romans 6-8).
- We are a part of God's beautiful story - creation, fall, redemption, and restoration (Romans 9-11).
- Christians follow in Jesus' footsteps by humbly serving and sacrificially loving others (Romans 12-13).
- Christ-followers are called to live in fellowship with each other (Romans 14-16).
- The Problem We Face
- The Gift We've Been Offered
- The Battle We Fight
- The Story We've Joined
- The Path We Follow
- The Fellowship We Find
Max Lucado's study on the Book of Romans is the inaugural study in a series called 40 Days Through the Book. Each of the studies in this series, taught by a different pastor or Bible teacher on specific books of the Bible, is designed to help us more actively engage with God's Word by understanding its background and culture, and applying it in a fresh way to our lives.
