Renewal Through Romans 2009.08.23

  2. 2. <ul><li>16 For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile. 17 This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.” </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. 24 Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. 25 For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, 26 for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he declares sinners to be right in his sight when they believe in Jesus. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>1 With Christ as my witness, I speak with utter truthfulness. My conscience and the Holy Spirit confirm it. 2 My heart is filled with bitter sorrow and unending grief 3 for my people, my Jewish brothers and sisters. I would be willing to be forever cursed—cut off from Christ!—if that would save them. 4 They are the people of Israel, </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>chosen to be God’s adopted children. God revealed his glory to them. He made covenants with them and gave them his law. He gave them the privilege of worshiping him and receiving his wonderful promises. 5 Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are their ancestors, and Christ himself was an Israelite as far as his human nature is concerned. And he is God, the one who rules over everything and is worthy of eternal praise! Amen. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>11 As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” 12 Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. 13 For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>14 But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>15 And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!” </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>  16 But not everyone welcomes the Good News, for Isaiah the prophet said, “Lord, who has believed our message?” 17 So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>PRINCIPLES </li></ul><ul><li>The prayer of bridging leads a seeker to living water. </li></ul><ul><li>The prayer of bridging knocks down the gates of hell. </li></ul><ul><li>The prayer of bridging tears down walls and obstacles. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Practice </li></ul><ul><li>Pray for specific people by name. </li></ul><ul><li>Pray that the blinds would come off their eyes. </li></ul><ul><li>Pray for the conviction of the Spirit. </li></ul><ul><li>Pray that the Father would draw them to Jesus. </li></ul><ul><li>Pray that barriers would be torn down. </li></ul><ul><li>Pray that they would see the holiness and loving kindness of God. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Pray that God would tear down false thinking, teaching, and beliefs. </li></ul><ul><li>Pray that they would see Jesus. </li></ul><ul><li>Pray others into their path. </li></ul><ul><li>Pray for your witness. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>“ Heavenly Father I pray for my friend Joe. I ask that you would draw him to Jesus and that you would convict him of his sin by your Spirit. I pray that you would take the blinds off his eyes and enable him to see the person and work of Jesus. Tear down false teachings, beliefs, and thinking. And place in his path a loving witness. Give me the ability to speak into his life. I claim Joe for Jesus. In His name. Amen.” </li></ul>
