"Back to the Bible" with "Ron Moore"

God's Sovereignty, Part 2

Thursday, July 27, 2017

Ron MooreRon Moore continues our look at Romans and the questions that arise when we try to reconcile the sovereignty of God and the responsibility of man. We'll look at some attempts throughout history to merge the two concepts. But, in the end, we'll be reminded that our final authority, and the basis of all our action, rests in the Word of God alone.


God's Sovereignty, Part 1 - Wednesday, July 26, 2017
Of the many mysteries surrounding God and His relationship with man, one is particularly relevant: If God is in complete control--if He is indeed sovereign--why does it also seem that we have a choice when it comes to serving Him? Ron Moore begins a look at this complex question by focusing on Paul's defense of God's sovereignty found in Romans.
More Than Conquerors - Tuesday, July 25, 2017
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28 is a verse many have memorized and repeat often. Ron Moore helps us unpack this verse and shows how we can claim its promise even when things don't seem to be so good.
Eagerly Waiting - Monday, July 24, 2017
In writing his letter to the Romans, Paul didn't want his readers to suffer any illusions about life as a Christian. Though an eternity with God in heaven is assured, life today will undoubtedly be unpleasant at times. But, as Ron Moore explains, it's that eternity that awaits that can help us find the strength to stand against whatever life throws at us today.
No Condemnation - Friday, July 21, 2017
Is Christianity just a state of mind? Do we see the "glass" half-full instead of half-empty and that's the only difference? Paul says, absolutely not. Ron Moore continues in Romans with an examination of the believer's lifestyle in contrast to the lifestyle of the unbeliever. We'll find several ways in which the life of the believer is markedly different from the life of the unbeliever controlled by the sinful nature.
The War Within - Thursday, July 20, 2017
We know that over a lifetime, we can be spiritually victorious in the power of Christ. But what about over a morning--when the hopes and possibilities of 8:00 AM become failures and frustrations only an hour later? Paul had the same minute-by-minute struggles and doubts that we do, and in Romans 7 he lets out those frustrations. Ron Moore takes us through this chapter and shows how God is always greater than our doubts.
Recognizing Sin - Wednesday, July 19, 2017
Throughout Paul's letter to the Romans, he makes it abundantly clear that we who believe in Christ are no longer bound to the Old Testament law. So, should we just ignore it? Ron Moore takes us to Romans chapter 6 for Paul's answer to this question. We'll learn the importance of holding on to the Old Testament how to keep our hearts focused on serving God, and not ourselves.
Gift of God - Tuesday, July 18, 2017
There tends to be a lot of confusion when it comes to talking about how sin and salvation intersect. Why do believers keep on sinning even after they have "become a new creation"? Ron Moore continues our study of Romans by looking at the idea of sanctification, the process of becoming set apart. We'll also look at Paul's pointed response to those who wonder if it's okay to indulge in the old sinful lifestyle once in a while.
Dead or Alive - Monday, July 17, 2017
There is limitless life-giving power available to the Christian. Power to live as Christ desires. Power to live in victory. So how come so many believers seem to stay stuck in their sinful behaviors? Ron Moore takes us to Romans 6 to highlight several truths about the new believer that will help us embrace the new life we have in Christ.
The Gift of Grace - Friday, July 14, 2017
Ron Moore continues our examination of Paul's letter to the Roman's by considering the origins of sin in our world. We'll look at the results of Adam's sin back in Eden and find out why it was necessary for Jesus to die on the cross. And by understanding the grace that Jesus extended to sinners, we'll be encouraged to show grace to those in our lives.
