Romans: Saved for Mission

The Rev. David Alwine | Romans 8:26-34 |

Romans 8 provides a moving account of the Holy Spirit’s action in the lives of believers. This description includes the unusual language of the Spirit “groaning” on our behalf. What does this say about God, and how does Spirit to “groan” for us? Join Rev. David as he explores this unique phrase and its implications for us.

 

Romans: Saved for Mission

The Rev. Patrick Schlabs | Romans 8:18-25 |

In Romans chapter 8, Paul explores life in the Spirit. The Spirit is given to God’s children to bring about new creation in their lives even while they live in a broken world. Paul shows the Spirit as the connection between the ‘already’ of God’s kingdom and the ‘not yet’ of the Christian life. Listen as Patrick Schlabs shows how the Spirit brings hope in suffering and assures us of the future renewal of all creation as well as our physical bodies.

 

Romans: Saved for Mission

Mr. Jacob Graudin | Romans 8:7-17 |

The first half of Romans chapter 8 describes a new kind of existence for God’s people: life in the Spirit. What does it mean to live life in the Spirit? What does this life in the Spirit look like, and why does it so often feel like the Christian life is anything but Spirit-filled? Join Jacob as he wrestles with these questions and finds deep and important answers in the pages of Scripture.

How does it affect our lives with God and with one another? Join Rev. Patrick as he unpacks the meaning of our death and our life in Christ.
