Romans 12:1-8

1. Believers’ best response to God’s favor towards them is to offer to Him their life as a worship by renouncing their claim over it in a complete consecration to Him—sacrifice—living, holy, and acceptable [This is not a command but an exhortation] 2. For such worship to take place, believers must consciously saturate their mind…

Romans 8:31-32; 12:1-2

1. With the expression “What then shall we say about these things?” Paul concludes the section 1:1-8:29—(“these things) (a) Justification (b) Sanctification (c) Sin, death, self, and the Law 2.

Romans 6:1–8:4

1. God ushers a justified person to a new life unto Him [dative of association] (verse 1-14) (a) By associating/uniting him with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection (vv. 3-6) (b) By separating him from sin’s dominion (verse 7) (c) By moving him from living to sin to live to God (verses 8-10) 2 Sin continues…

Romans 5:1-21

God’s acquittal of sinful man has immediate and ongoing benefits 1. Immediate Benefits (5:1-11) (a) Peace with God (verse 1): Peace here does not mean inner tranquility, but an absence of hostility that existed because of sin (5:1) [the goal is that this peace between God and man must lead to man’s inner peace] (a1)…

Romans 3:21-26; 12:1

1. Both religious and non-religious people stand condemned before God (3:9) 2. Instead of convicting them, God acquits them (verse 24)—i.e., (a) God treats them as if they were innocent when they are just the opposite (verse 21)—Paul calls it “the righteousness of God” (b) God extends His grace to those who stand condemned before…
