The 9th lesson in this series was given on April 19, 2009 and covers Chapter 8 of Romans with the scripture reading in verses 1-4, and 38,39. What God has done though Christ goes beyond the cross and the resurrection, it involves your life and the practical relationship with Him as savior and that is where the rubber meets the road. We all have difficulty with this because there is a desire to serve God and please Him, but we fall flat on our face. Why? We have a character flaw called sin and it is part of the flesh that we have in our old nature. But God has taken the means to make us conquerer’s over sin and that is why Paul ends this chapter of Romans 8:38-39 saying “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans is divided into three sections. Chapters 1-8 involve doctrine and chapter 8 is the culmination of this message because it summarizes the condition we find man in relation to God. Chapters 9-11 are dispensational and we see the practical section starting with Chapters 12-16. This lesson finishes the doctrinal section of Romans where we learn that God has taken care of the biggest problem man has – sin.
