It is our prayer that the Word of God will not only be preached and heard at Woolsey but daily applied to our lives. Talk-It-Over is created by Pastor Chuck as a resource to accompany the Sunday Morning Sermon. Use these questions for personal reflection or discuss them with your spouse and families!
Please do not hesitate to contact Pastor Chuck if he can be of any assistance to you in applying God's Word.
Paul’s flow of argument in Romans begins with sin in the opening chapters. What does this structure imply about our presentation of the gospel to sinners? Why is it so important to establish the reality of sin when talking about justification?
It was mentioned in the sermon that justification means to declare to be righteous. Think of a court scene where God is the Judge and we are the ones on trial for our sins. The wages of sin is death and as guilty sinners we deserve that sentence. But Jesus took our death penalty in our place. Because of Jesus’ atoning death, God, the Judge turns to us as guilty sinners and pronounces us not guilty which also includes forgiveness of sins and the imputation of Christs’ righteousness. Why was Jesus able to take our penalty? How can God accept us as sinners? What is an illustration of imputation in our culture? How do you respond to this good news?
