S9 Episode 18: By His Grace For His Glory - Romans 16

The book of Romans is foundational yet deep. It is simple yet complex. It is an incredibly influential book that has been changing lives for centuries. Romans is the gospel truth that we need every day, and we will never reach an end to the treasures that await us in this powerful letter. Everything we have and all that we are is by His grace for His glory.


In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Romans 16. Paul concludes his longest letter with specific greetings for the believers in the Roman church. These names point us further to unity and diversity of the church. He gives a final warning to watch out for those who add to the gospel or create division. He closes with a final doxology reminding us that all we have and do is by His grace for His glory.

QUOTES

William Tyndale in his 1534 preface to Romans 

"Forasmuch as this epistle is the principal and most excellent part of the New Testament, and most pure [gospel]. . . and also a light and a way in unto the whole scripture, I think it meet that every Christian man not only know it by rote but also exercise himself therein evermore continually as with the daily bread of the soul. No man verily can read it too oft or study it too well: for the more it is studied the easier it is, the more it is searched the more precious things are found in it, so great treasure of spiritual things lieth hid therein."

Everything we have and all that we are is by His grace for His glory.


In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Romans 14. Paul addresses two specific examples of non-essential cultural issues that were creating division in the church. We should not criticize or belittle others who differ in opinions that are not a matter of sin or salvation. We must take care not to be a stumbling block, leading others toward sin.

QUOTES

NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible

"Sometimes writers saved particularly controversial matters for the end of a speech or letter. After tracing theological (chs 1-11) and moral (chs 12-13) ground for unity between Jewish and non-Jewish believers, Paul comes to some practical issues that are apparently causing division between Romans Christians. Three Jewish practices for which non-Jewish Romans especially mocked Jew were circumcision (already addressed in 2:25-29; 4:9-12), food practices and holy days."


Matthew Henry

We usurp the place of God, when we take upon us thus to judge the thoughts and intentions of others, which are out of our view. 


The Bible Project

These practices don't define who's in or out of Jesus' family. And if people differ over these culturally important, but non-essential issues, they need to learn to respect each other's differences.

Everything we have and all that we are is by His grace for His glory.

In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Romans 13. In this chapter, Paul continues with practical advice in light of the gospel of Jesus. He emphasizes honor to the government and reiterates again that we should love our neighbor as ourself - both with the aim of bringing glory to God. He reminds us again: do not satisfy the flesh, but instead put on Jesus. We can do this because the night is far gone; we are children of the light!

QUOTES

HCSB Study Bible

Unwarranted rebellion against government is de facto rebellion against God.

HSBC the Study Bible for Women

To resist authority of those ruling legitimately is to rebel against God's command.

Ellicott's Commentary

Deafness and blindness may prevent the sufferers from detecting the offender, and bringing him to justice before an earthly tribunal, but God on high hears it when the human ear is stopped up, and sees it when the human eye is extinct. Hence the prohibition against injustice to the infirm and the poor is enforced by an appeal to fear the Lord.

Romans is the gospel truth that we need every day, and we will never reach an end to the treasures that await us in this powerful letter. Everything we have and all that we are is by His grace for His glory.

In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Romans 12. This chapter kicks off the final section of Romans focusing on practical advice. It answers the question "What now?" In this passage, Paul encourages his brothers and sisters to be sanctified and with humility to live in love and service to one another. With God's grace, we can be united (even in our diversity) and live peaceably with all. We all have a role and a part to play in the beautiful, multi-ethnic body of Christ.

QUOTES

Alexander MacLaren

Character, then, or, more truly, faith, which is the foundation of a righteous character, determines the acceptableness of worship. Cain’s offering had no sense of dependence, no outgoing of love and trust, no adoration,-though it may have had fear,-and no moral element. So it had no sweet odour for God. Abel’s was sprinkled with some drops of the incense of lowly trust, and came from a heart which fain would be pure; therefore it was a joy to God. So we are taught at the very beginning, that, as is the man, so is his sacrifice

Alexander MacLaren

The strength of a Christian man’s faith determines his whole Christian character. Faith is trust, the attitude of receptivity . . .

But Paul here regards the measure of faith as itself ‘dealt to every man’; and however we may construe the grammar of this sentence there is a deep sense in which our faith is God’s gift to us. We have to give equal emphasis to the two conceptions of faith as a human act and as a divine bestowal, which have so often been pitted against each other as contradictory when really they are complementary.

R. Kent Hughes

There is scarcely anything more important for building our commitment than an increasing understanding of the greatness of God and his mercies to us.

The book of Romans is foundational yet deep. It is simple yet complex. It is an incredibly influential book that has been changing lives for centuries. Romans is the gospel truth that we need every day, and we will never reach an end to the treasures that await us in this powerful letter. Everything we have and all that we are is by His grace for His glory.

In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Romans 11. God is creating a multi-ethnic family where we are all common in sin and common in salvation. This is a further breakdown of the fact that God requires faith for salvation. That is His grace to us. Being born Jewish or following the law is not what saves you. We cannot choose our own way and then call God unfaithful. He is faithful always, and we need to submit to His ways, through faith in Jesus Christ, and accept the gift of grace He offers.

QUOTES

NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible

Prophets recognized that after judgment, God would deliver the remnant, the survivors (e.g. Isaiah 10:20-22; 28:5; 37:31-32; Jeremiah 50:20; Micah 5:7-8); Paul speaks of those still faithful to divine truth. God chose his people because of his love (Deuteronomy 7:7-8); because Jewish people viewed themselves as the chosen people, Paul's emphasis on the more narrowly chosen remnant challenges their assumptions.

NIV Backgrounds Cultural Study Bible

A significant line of Jewish tradition emphasizes the future salvation of all Israel; while this meant Israel as a whole and not every individual Israelite, only the most notorious sinners were excluded. Paul supports his case with Isaiah 59:20-21, a context also mentioning the gift of the Spirit.

John Piper, The Gospel Coalition Conference 2022 keynote

The undeserved blessing of water from the rock, the undeserved blessing of manna from heaven, the undeserved blessing of deliverance at the Red Sea, the undeserved blessing of guidance by the pillar of cloud and the pillar of fire, the undeserved blessing of Moses's leadership,

all of it was owing to the cross of Christ. Is it right, then, to say the rock was Christ? The manna was Christ? The deliverance was Christ? The pillars of fire and cloud were Christ? God's guilty people would enjoy no blessing apart from Christ and what he did 1400 years later.

And so it is for you and me who are in Christ, you who despair of your sinful self and know God owes you nothing.

Romans is the gospel truth that we need every day, and we will never reach an end to the treasures that await us in this powerful letter. Everything we have and all that we are is by His grace for His glory.

In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Romans 10. Paul continues connecting the Old and New Testaments and further explains why being born a Jew isn't enough for salvation. He explains how God is still faithful and has kept His promise. He uses several Old Testament verses to remind us that His Word is near, we must believe in our heart and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord. Instead, Israel has turned away trying to establish their own way.

QUOTES

  • IVP Bible Background Commentary  - Jewish teachers commonly expounded a text by citing other texts that shared the same key word; hence Paul ties in another verse (Joel 2:32) that has the word "whoever" to explain that in Isaiah 28:16 "not to be disappointed" (NASB) or "not to be put to shame (NIV) means "be saved."
  • Matthew Henry: The believer shall never have cause to repent his confident trust in the Lord Jesus. Of such faith no sinner shall be ashamed before God; and he ought to glory in it before men.
  • R. Kent Hughes; Romans: Righteousness from Heaven: The Law was given as a tutor to lead the Jewish nation to Christ. God never intended that the Jews would be saved through perfect obedience to the Law, but rather that by their failure to live up to it they would be driven to grace.
  • Matthew Henry: We may wonder at the mercy of God, that his goodness is not overcome by man's badness; we may wonder at the wickedness of man, that his badness is not overcome by God's goodness. And it is a matter of joy to think that God has sent the message of grace to so many millions, by the wide spread of his gospel.

Romans is the gospel truth that we need every day, and we will never reach an end to the treasures that await us in this powerful letter. Everything we have and all that we are is by His grace for His glory.

In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Romans 9. Paul moves into a new section of the letter, focusing on connecting the Old and New Testaments and showing God is still faithful to fulfill His promises. He uses at least a dozen Old Testament passages to show God's sovereignty over the line of promise as an example. Jesus is the promise, and we are saved only by faith in Him no matter our heritage. The Lord withholds judgement, and He allows those who surrender and those who do not to life longer to accomplish His purpose for the glory of His great name.

QUOTES

NIV Bible Commentary:  If they are to embrace the gospel, they must see how it is truly the fulfillment of the Old Testament. Jewish-Christians also need to be assured that their faith in Christ does not mean they have ceased to believe in the God of the Old Testament and of their Jewish heritage. But Gentile-Christians must also see a connection between Old and New Testaments in the plan of salvation. They must see that their own faith has its roots sunk deeply into Old Testament soil.

Erin Warren, Feasting on Truth: Savor the Life-giving Word of God: Honestly, I don’t want a god that I can completely grasp. That seems far too small a god.

Advent: The Character of the One Who Came - Episode 5

Advent: The Character of the One Who Came - Episode 5

The season of Advent is an invitation--an opportunity to slow down and take notice, to take in the wonder and miracle of Jesus' coming, a season to reflect on the character of the One who came.

In this final Advent podcast, Erin Warren focuses on this week's character focus: Jesus is the One Who Came. John 1:1-14 is a unique telling of the Christmas story. It focuses not on a baby, but on God, who came near, the glory of God beheld by human eyes, the One who came near and dwelt among us. This Advent we celebrate His coming here, but also look to His coming again.

This Advent, I want to extend to you a gracious invitation to Christmas. This season is busy, and our schedules are fuller than ever. But this simple study is an opportunity to see the character of the One who came near.

The season of Advent is an invitation--an opportunity to slow down and take notice, to take in the wonder and miracle of Jesus' coming, a season to reflect on the character of the One who came.

In this podcast, Erin Warren focuses on this week's character focus: Jesus is the Life and the Life Giver. There are so many passages in Scripture that speak to this characteristic, but Romans 6:1-14 uses the symbol of baptism to show how we die to our old self and are raised to new life in Christ Jesus. Death and sin no longer have dominion over us, and we walk in newness of life in Him. Jesus didn't come to make the bad good; He came to make the dead alive. He came that we might have life and have it abundantly.

Erin also sets up this coming week's character focus: Jesus is the One who came.

The season of Advent is an invitation--an opportunity to slow down and take notice, to take in the wonder and miracle of Jesus' coming, a season to reflect on the character of the One who came.

In this podcast, Erin Warren focuses on this week's character focus: Jesus is the Truth and the Truth Teller. In John 8, Jesus says that those who know truth are set free. His Word is true, but His truth is more than words He speaks. His Word is true because Jesus is the embodiment of truth. He is truth, and therefore all He says is true. Unlike the devil, who speaks lies because his character is a liar. We have a choice: we either abide in His truth freely or belong to the father of lies. Erin also sets up this coming week's character focus: Jesus is the Life and the Life Giver.

This Advent, I want to extend to you a gracious invitation to Christmas. This season is busy, and our schedules are fuller than ever. But this simple study is an opportunity to see the character of the One who came near.

Romans is the gospel truth that we need every day, and we will never reach an end to the treasures that await us in this powerful letter. Everything we have and all that we are is by His grace for His glory.

In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Romans 8. This may be one of the most encouraging chapters in all of Scripture! As Paul closes out the second section of his longest letter, he encourages us: that even in the already-but-not-yet and even though we struggle with our sin as we are sanctified, we are not condemned! We are more than conquerors and nothing can separate from the steadfast love of our Abba Father. But as we wait for the fulfillment of His promise, we are not orphans. We have the Spirit who guides us, helps us, and intercedes on our behalf.

Everything we have and all that we are is by His grace for His glory.

In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Romans 4. Paul continues to answer anticipated objections and arguments related to being saved by faith, not works. Paul uses Abraham to illustrate that both Jews and Gentiles are included in God's family, that righteousness is rooted in faith, and that works are a sign of faith—not righteousness.

  • Hebrews 2:1

QUOTE

Craig S. Keener: The faith that it takes to be justified is rudimentary: we simply need to take God at his word that he has promised, namely, that he has provided us salvation by Jesus’s death and resurrection (Rom 4:22-25). That is, it is not difficult to exercise faith for salvation. But as we continue to walk with God and persevere through tests of our faith, we grow to see that God is reliable and that even in the hardest times there is hope. Abraham had seen God provide him a son miraculously and believed that this same God would fulfill his promise if Abraham obeyed him fully (Heb 11:17-19). We may not always hear the details as clearly as Abraham did, but we have surely heard the message of the cross. God is trustworthy, and tests of our faith are opportunities for us to learn faith in a deeper way, beyond saving faith. We may learn, ever more deeply, that God is trustworthy; if we persevere, the hardest challenges to faith are the ones that ultimately drive home his faithfulness most deeply, because no matter what God still has a plan and purpose for us that lasts forever.

S9 Episode 4: By His Grace For His Glory - Romans 3

S9 Episode 4: By His Grace For His Glory - Romans 3

The book of Romans is foundational yet deep. It is simple yet complex. It is an incredibly influential book that has been changing lives for centuries. Romans is the gospel truth that we need every day, and we will never reach an end to the treasures that await us in this powerful letter. Everything we have and all that we are is by His grace for His glory.

In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Romans 3. In this section on God's Righteousness vs. our need for a Savior, Paul continues to set the foundation of the gospel exploring where we are without Jesus. We are all sinners, but there is good news. We are justified and redeemed through faith in Jesus Christ. But now, there is hope! These verses are some of the most compact, rich gospel explanations in the entire Bible.

QUOTES

  • NIV Application Commentary: Rarely does the Bible bring together in so few verses so many important theological ideas: the righteousness of God, justification, the shift in salvation history, faith, sin, redemption, grace, propitiation, forgiveness, and the justice of God.  Here, more than anywhere else in Romans, Paul explains why Christ’s coming means “good news” for needy, sinful people.
  • William Barclay's Commentary: Finally, Paul says of God that he did all this because he is just, and accepts as just all who believe in Jesus. Paul never said a more startling thing than this. [Johann Albrecht] Bengel called it "the supreme paradox of the gospel." Think what it means. It means that God is just and accepts the sinner as a just man. The natural thing to say would be, "God is just, and, therefore, condemns the sinner as a criminal." But here we have the great paradox--God is just, and somehow, in that incredible, miraculous grace that Jesus came to bring to men, he accepts the sinner, not as a criminal, but as a son whom he still loves.  What is the essence of all this? Where is the difference between it and the old way of the law? The basic difference is this--the way of obedience to the law is concerned with what a man can do for himself; the way of grace is concerned with what God can do, and has done, for him. Paul is insisting that nothing we can ever do can win for us the forgiveness of God; only what God has done for us can win that; therefore the way to a right relationship with God lies, not in a frenzied, desperate, doomed attempt to win acquittal by our performance; it lies in the humble, penitent acceptance of the love and the grace which God offers us in Jesus Christ.

S9 Episode 3: By His Grace For His Glory - Romans 2

The book of Romans is foundational yet deep. It is simple yet complex. It is an incredibly influential book that has been changing lives for centuries. Romans is the gospel truth that we need every day, and we will never reach an end to the treasures that await us in this powerful letter. Everything we have and all that we are is by His grace for His glory.

In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Romans 2. As Paul moves to address the Jewish believers in the Roman church, he addresses the pride of spiritual position. It's important to remember the context of the letter as Paul shows how we are all common in our sin and need a Savior and that God is the only Righteous Judge.

QUOTES

  • Matthew Henry: The Jews thought themselves a holy people, entitled to their privileges by right, while they were unthankful, rebellious, and unrighteous. But all who act thus, of every nation, age, and description, must be reminded that the judgment of God will be according to their real character.
  • R. Kent Hughes: Whenever a follower of Christ feels superior, he should beware, for such an attitude is not a sign of God's grace. To some into a position of spiritual privilege only to succumb to self-righteous arrogance indicates that one's soul is in great danger. Our familiarity with holy things must never give way to spiritual presumption.  (Hughes, R. Kent. Romans: Righteousness from Heaven. United States, Crossway, 2013. p. 60)

S7 Episode 8: To Dwell in Our Midst - Week 7 (The Ark of the Covenant and The Mercy Seat)

Why study this ancient tent? What does knowing the Tabernacle have to do with our faith on this side of the cross? Everything. From Creation, God's desire was to dwell in the midst of His people. In the middle of the wilderness, God gives Moses a way for God Himself to dwell in the midst of His people: the Tabernacle. This tent is not merely ritual or history or good information. It's essential to understanding our salvation. Our detailed and deliberate God gave us the Tabernacle because one day, He would give us Jesus.

In this final teaching, Erin Warren discusses the sixth and seventh pieces of furniture in the Tabernacle: The Ark of the Covenant and the Marcy Seat, as well as the Most Holy Day: the Day of Atonement. Both furnishings are placed behind the Veil in the Most Holy Place, the place where God's Glory dwelled. No one was to enter except the High Priest and only on the Day of Atonement. When Jesus cried "It is finished!" on the cross, something incredible happened in the Temple. Jesus did what the blood of bulls and goats could not do, and because of our Great High Priest and the sacrifice of Himself, we now have not only access, but confidence to draw near to the Presence of God. He doesn't just dwell in our midst; He dwells in us.

S7 Episode 7: To Dwell in Our Midst - Week 6 (The Altar of Incense)

Why study this ancient tent? What does knowing the Tabernacle have to do with our faith on this side of the cross? Everything. From Creation, God's desire was to dwell in the midst of His people. In the middle of the wilderness, God gives Moses a way for God Himself to dwell in the midst of His people: the Tabernacle. This tent is not merely ritual or history or good information. It's essential to understanding our salvation. Our detailed and deliberate God gave us the Tabernacle because one day, He would give us Jesus.

In this teaching, Erin Warren discusses the fifth piece of furniture in the Tabernacle: The Altar of Incense. This altar was not for sacrifice, but for another important purpose, both physically and spiritually. Sweet is the aroma of a holy intercession that covers the stench of death. While I love the intercession of Jesus, we cannot overlook that this is the only piece of furniture with a warning against misuse. It is a message to us: how we approach God matters.

S7 Episode 4: To Dwell in Our Midst - Week 3 (The Bronze Basin)

Why study this ancient tent? What does knowing the Tabernacle have to do with our faith on this side of the cross? Everything. From Creation, God's desire was to dwell in the midst of His people. In the middle of the wilderness, God gives Moses a way for God Himself to dwell in the midst of His people: the Tabernacle. This tent is not merely ritual or history or good information. It's essential to understanding our salvation. Our detailed and deliberate God gave us the Tabernacle because one day, He would give us Jesus.

In this teaching, Erin Warren talks about the second furnishing in the Tabernacle: the Bronze Basin. Blood and water. Both are required to approach God, for Him to dwell in our midst. Blood atones. Water cleanses. The Bronze Basin served a practical purpose: washing off blood of the sacrifice, but it also gives us a spiritual representation: cleansing from the stain of sin. When blood and water flowed from Jesus' side on the cross, we were made clean. But, there is another type of cleaning: sanctification. It's the process of forsaking the things of the world and looking more like Jesus in the way we act, think, and speak. Thankfully, Jesus also gives us a way to take part in this process: The Word of God.
