Sermon Title: Still Crazy After All These Years
Scripture: Romans 3:19–28; Philippians 3:4–11
This week, Dr. Douglas Sweeney, Dean, Beeson Divinity School, shared a message on the struggle between legalism and salvation by God’s grace.
- In what area(s) of your life do you struggle with legalism and a “performance” mentality in your relationship with Jesus?
- Dr. Sweeney shared this truth from Scripture: “We are saved not by our holiness, not by being good enough to live up to the standards of our perfectly righteous Judge, but by faith in the righteousness of God given to us on account of Jesus Christ.” How are you encouraged by this truth from Romans 3?
- What is one thing you need to do this week to “quit striving” to be good enough to earn the love of God?
May the LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace. ~ Numbers 6:24–26
