Romans (Program #41) – Saved in Life from Sin and Worldliness

We can draw water from the wells of salvation and we can be saved day by day in His life. The Bible is a book of life. The gospel of John reveals Christ as life to us but Romans brings us fully into the experience of this life.

This is easily one of the most important portions of the Bible for our Christian life. What is the most marvelous relationship that we’re going to see between the gospel of John and the book of Romans? John shows us that Christ as life meets the need of every man’s case – whatever our case is, whatever kind of need we have, whatever kind of condition or situation we’re in – Christ as life meets our need! But John doesn’t show us in particular the way we can experience Christ as life.  This is why the book of Romans is so excellent because what Romans shows us is the way to experience the divine life. Just as an example, John 15 tells us we need to abide in Christ, when we come to Romans 8 we see the way to abide in Christ – the way we abide in Christ is by setting our mind on the spirit and setting our whole being on the spirit.
