Putting it All Together

Truth must be spoken and lived, understood and practiced. Knowing the science of balance is one thing, riding a bicycle is another. Paul outlines the facts of the gospel in Romans 1-4, but he then speaks of the power of the gospel in us, chapters 5-8. Today, Dr. John reviews the effect of this good news in the lives and actions of believers.

The Golden Chain

A chain is a series of connected links whose strength is as strong as each individual link. Dr. John teaches from Romans 8 on the theological chain forged by God which holds us to Him, His purposes, and our destiny. This Golden Chain of 5 links has the strength of God. No believer needs ever fear that it will break.

God’s Sovereignty

Believers are not immune to the pains of life. People of faith get sick, die in accidents, and can lose their jobs. Today Dr. John teaches on the promise of hope from Romans 8:28.

Creation’s Groaning

The redemption found in Jesus Christ covers all of creation. Even as the whole of creation was stained by sin, so the whole of creation looks to the renewal of God in Jesus. Dr. John reminds us that the efforts of man to prevent and renew the ecology fall short. God Himself will make the earth and all creation exactly as He intended – all for His glory.

The Weight of Glory

There are unavoidable truths in life. No matter who you are, where you are or how you live; they are inescapable. Suffering is one of those facts. Today, Dr. John speaks of our present suffering in light of our coming glory. When the certainty of current suffering and promise of future glory are compared, glory shines brighter. Since that is true, if our present sufferings are real, how great the coming glory must be!

We can become family by birth. We can become family by adoption. God has done both for us. He grants us new life in Jesus, but then He does more. He makes us His family by the Spirit – sons and daughters of God. Dr. John teaches on the abundant graces that have been granted to us. He has offered more to us than could be imagined.

Life in the Spirit

When hitting a baseball or riding a bicycle, this principle applies; “You go where you look.” Our bodies will follow our gaze, when swinging at a pitch or navigating a sharp turn. Today Dr. John reminds us that a similar principle is at work in our spiritual growth. When our minds and vision are set on the things of God, we will follow the leading of the Spirt.
