Abraham, The Father of All Who Believe

Media, Romans, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Romans

This morning, we continue our study of the most influential, life-changing, worldview-shaping letter ever written—Romans. It is a timeless, divinely-inspired masterpiece on the joy-filled-life-as-it-should-be freedom found in Jesus. Today, in 4:9-12, Paul continues to reveal the multi-faceted beauties of justification by faith. This is a good opportunity to zoom out, take stock of where we’ve been, and ask, “Why does Paul emphasize justification by faith like he does? Why take so much time to drive this truth home?”

Defending Justification by Faith

Media, Romans, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Romans

We continue our study of the most influential, life-changing, worldview-shaping letter ever written—Romans. It is a timeless, divinely-inspired masterpiece on the joy-filled-life-as-it-should-be freedom found in Jesus. In 4:1-8, Paul defends justification by faith in a surprising way-by appealing to Abraham and David. In this, he demonstrates that justification by faith is not a new idea, but God’s ancient way of counting the ungodly as righteous (4:5).

Questioning Justification by Faith

Media, Romans, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Romans
We continue our study of the most influential, life-changing, worldview-shaping letter ever written—Romans. It is a timeless, divinely-inspired masterpiece on the joy-filled-life-as-it-should-be freedom found in Jesus. Today, in 3:27-31, Paul pauses to defend “justification by faith” by addressing common objections. He explains that justification by faith: transforms how we understand salvation, clarifies who salvation is for, and empowers us to live for God. But, first, we need to explore the nature of faith.

The Gift Of God’s Righteousness

Media, Romans, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Romans

Today we continue our study of the most influential, life-changing, worldview-shaping letter ever written Romans. It is a timeless, divinely-inspired masterpiece on the joy-filled-life-as-it-should-be freedom found in Jesus. Today, in 3:21-26, the terrain shifts dramatically as Paul answers the question: In light of our sinful condition (see 1:18-3:20), how can we be made right with God? Is it even possible? In response, he begins to unravel the wonder and glory of justification by faith alone, through grace alone, in Christ alone.

God’s Glory as Fuel for God’s Mission

Media, New Year Essentials, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

New Year Essentials

This sermon concludes a set of annual sermons we refer to as our New Year Essentials. These sermons address subjects and important themes that we must repeatedly return to for the glory of God and the transformation of our inner and outer lives. These are not, of course, the same sermons. Rather, they are different sermons, taking different angles, on issues we need to come back to again-and-again. Today, in Isaiah 40:12-26, we consider God’s glory as the fuel for God’s mission.
