A bit on Romans
I do miss writing a bit. I get a chance to write some, but not near as much since having a daughter. I never realized how much work kids are. So while the little Evelynator is napping, I decided to write some. I started writing on the book of Romans a while ago and hope that in the future I can continue my study of it. No other book of the Bible has as much doctrine nor the depth of doctrine as Romans does. I can't think of any book that convicts me as much as Romans does either. But it also gives so much hope. The verse that sums up Romans in my opinion is Philippians 1:6- "Being confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in me will continue it until the day of Jesus Christ." God calls us from our dirty, rotten sinful background into an abundant life in which He completely sanctifies us in the end. We have our battles that we fight and we choose between God and sin so often, but ultimately, it is God who pulls us through them. Romans explains that process and encourages us to choose to follow Christ every time.
