Suffering in the Spirit Romans 8:16-30
The Christian life is not exempt or immune from suffering. We will go through troublesome, weary inducing, and heavily weighted circumstances in our lives. We can do so with or without a gospel perspective.

Life in the Spirit - Romans 8:5-17
Those who live incurvetus in se (curved in on one's self) do not live according to the Spirit. The Spirit is Jesus focused, gospel reflective, and practical for daily life. Explore more of this amazing chapter of Romans!

Now that we are no longer serving sin, we can live as a servant to righteousness. This is why we still value the Law - it shows us what is righteous - loving our neighbor.

If God's grace covers all my sin, does that mean I can just sin all I want and enjoy the advantage of his grace? Paul answers this common question by pointing followers of Jesus to their baptism.

Chapter 5 of Romans is rich with mind blowing good news. It tells us that God's love for us is not limited by our sin and that in Jesus, the new and better Adam, we are now blessed much more beyond the curse of sin.

“There is no perfect life, no perfect job, no perfect childhood, no perfect marriage and no perfect set of people who will always do what we expect them to do.

Paul's emphasis on faith, rather than works, depends on a key example from the Old Testament found in Abraham. Just as Abraham believed and his belief counted as righteousness in God's eyes, so our faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus will count as righteousness for us.

Faith Secures Righteousness We tend to believe that our behavior secures our right standing with God, but Paul argues that this approach is doomed to fail (Galatians 3:20). What we must realize is that faith in the gracious gift of our redemption in Jesus Christ is the only source of true righteousness we have (Romans 3:24).

When it comes to our sin, we have no excuses, but we do have grace that makes change possible and two paths to live our lives. For all those that the Father calls unto himself, he will never cast us out!

Paul kicks off his gospel presentation with clear evidence of sin and the subsequent wrath of God that follows. As much as it may challenge our way of thinking, we must let the Bible set the boundaries on what is good, right, and perfect.

Membership Part 3: Pursuing Community
At ENC, we aspire to more than just declaring gospel doctrine, but also the demonstration of the gospel in our culture. We want to be intentional to live out the realities of the gospel with others through Missional Community. We want to be devoted to "the teaching and the fellowship." (Acts 2:42)
