Romans 3:19-26

July 31, 2022
God saving us from his own wrath through grace
God will establish Christians to be full of good works (2v16/17) - sacrificial service (3v8) that flows from our commitment to hold fast (2v17) to the gospel. So, stick to the tradition you've been taught (3v6) and fill your time with good works, fulfilling your responsibilities and being a blessing to others, not shirking them and being a burden (3v8). But be careful not to grow weary as you do good (3v13). Win back those brothers or sisters who repeatedly disobey God's word by having nothing to do with them (3v6/14/15).

Isaiah 11v1-9

June 5, 2022
The promise of a righteous Spirit-empowered King brings hope to God's beleaguered people, since he will end oppression and bring a perfect reign of peace.
