This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

The Scriptures —Study 4 — Romans 2:17-29
Study 4 From The Book of Romans Is: 2:17-29
1.In verses 17-20 Paul enumerates
a number of privileges upon which the Jews of his day, were inclined to
congratulate themselves. If you make a list of them you should find ten in all.
Racial and religious pride are by no means confined to the Jews only, however.
Substitute ‘Christian’ for ‘Jew’ and ‘the Word’ for ‘the law’, and show how the
argument could be applied to professing Christians today.
2.Verses 25-29. The Jews rested upon circumcision as the seal
for God’s covenant with them. What else
does Paul show here to be required without which the outward sign ceases to have value? Cf. 1 Sa. 16:7. How would you frame the
argument in relation to Christian ordinances?
