Roaming Through Romans: Holiness Awakened

Roaming Through Romans: Holiness Awakened Sermon Audio Here

Romans 13:8-14

So far today, I’ve done all right.
I haven’t gossiped, lost my temper,
been greedy or grumpy, been nasty, selfish or overindulgent.
I’m very thankful for that.

But in a few minutes, God, I’m going to get out of bed,
and I’m going to need a LOT more help…

How Do You Awaken Holiness?

Go Deeper ~ Romans 13:8-10

  • 8 Paul’s restatement of Jesus’ answer: the most important law
  • 9/10 move the emphasis from LAW to LOVE

Get Going ~ Romans 13:11-14

  • 11 salvation’s opportunity has an END, and it’s getting closer! Wake up!
  • 12 armor=to be used in offense; weapon!
  • 13 behave=peripataomen; walk; careful journey on the way
  • 14 put on Jesus; don’t plan to fail in your flesh

About walking: a little child learns balance; a young person learns direction; but experience teaches us to focus on the finish line.
