Dwelling Place with Al Pittman


Romans 8:12-18 part 2

Thursday, July 18, 2019

Al Pittman

Today on The Dwelling Place, we’ll discover that the moment we receive Jesus Christ as Savior, we begin a new relationship with our adopted father, a relationship that eventually takes us to an everlasting home with Him! 

Paul says as believers in Jesus Christ, we have received a spirit of adoption. What does that mean exactly?


Romans 8:12-18 part 1 - Wednesday, July 17, 2019

If you took a survey of Bible scholars and pastors, and asked them which book of the Bible was most important for the believer to read, Paul’s epistle to the Romans would receive a significant number of votes. It’s rich with insights on living a life pleasing to God, and that should always be the goal of the Christian. And within Romans is the amazing chapter eight - a chapter that has so many rich assurances for the believer, it’s difficult comprehend it’s awesomeness! Today we’ll continue our look at chapter eight of Romans as we study verses twelve through eighteen. 

Romans 8:2-11 part 2 - Tuesday, July 16, 2019

We’re studying Romans chapter eight right now, and today we’ll make a return visit to the first several verses. This is a wonderful chapter in that it reminds us that through Jesus Christ, we have nothing to fear as far as our eternal future is concerned. He paid the price for us on the cross and no matter how badly we foul things up, he’s there waiting for us. And we will find out today, how to be a “Par” Christian! 

Romans 8:2-11 part 1 - Monday, July 15, 2019

today on The Dwelling Place, we’ll begin a study of Romans chapter eight, as we learn about the one thing in life that really is an absolute, one hundred percent sure thing! You can bet your eternal life on it! Pastor Al Pittman has a great reminder for us today about the assurance of our salvation through Christ. That’s what this wonderful chapter is all about. 

Romans 7:14-8:1 part 2 - Friday, July 12, 2019

As Christians, we delight in the law of God. Unbelievers don’t care about God’s law - they couldn’t care less. And though it’s a battle - ultimately there is victory! Today on The Dwelling Place we’ll be encouraged in the fight. 

Romans 7:14-8:1 part 1 - Thursday, July 11, 2019

When we come to Christ, does that mean all of a sudden we stop sinning?  Well First John makes it clear that if we claim to be without sin we’re a liar.  While we’re certainly not sinless, we will sin less than before we met our Savior.

Romans 7:1-13 part 2 - Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Jesus Himself said so many times that we can’t keep the Law no matter how hard we try. Of course, that’s why it’s so wonderful to know that we have a Savior who paid the debt once for all. This is The Dwelling Place and we’re pleased to bring you another study from Romans today. 

Romans 7:1-13 part 1 - Tuesday, July 9, 2019

Moses gave three hundred sixty five prohibitions and two hundred forty eight positive commands. David reduced them to eleven in the Psalms, Isaiah made them six, Micah binds them into three commands, and finally Habakkuk reduces them all to one great statement: The just shall live by faith. Living by faith has great freedom, but it also has great responsibilities. We’re in Romans seven, and today pastor Al underscores the freedom we have from the law. 

Romans 6:11-23 part 2 - Monday, July 8, 2019

Slavery has been a part of mankind's existance for almost as long as we have existed. That is an unfortunate truth. For the Christian, we may not be completely free from sin, but we are no longer slaves to it. There is indeed a difference. Join us in Romans six, verse fifteen,

Romans 6:1-11 part 2 - Friday, July 5, 2019

Contrary to what many think - sin is still mankind’s greatest problem! And no matter what kind of religion or philosophy a person has, if it doesn’t deal with sin - what good is it?  Romans chapter six, verses one through eleven, deals with our sin problem in a definitive and liberating way. It tells us that as Christians, we’re to count on the great reality that we are “dead to sin and alive to God.”
