What is Your Vision of Reality?

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, we hover above chapters one through seven to take in Paul’s vision of reality as a whole. My prayer is that God would cause this vision to become our vision. This reality is not meant to float above our lives, but give shape to it every day.

Heirs of the World by Faith

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, we look at 4:13-17a. Paul is in the middle of proving that God’s people, beginning with Abraham, have always been made right with God by faith-not works. As we’ll see, everything is at stake in getting justification right, even the world.

How Does OT Circumcision Relate to NT Baptism

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, we are back in 4:9-12, especially v.11, which for the last 400 years has been used by advocates of infant baptism to build their case. So, let’s examine this claim. But, first, let’s consider why this is relevant for us along with the very real danger, and unfortunate prevalence of, theological minimalism in our day.

Abraham, The Father of All Who Believe

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 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).
