Delivered From the Law

Read: Romans 7:1-6

When you have a serious fall, an X-ray will reveal a serious fracture in your leg. Do you blame the X-ray for the problem? Do you blame your doctor for informing you of a life-threatening situation? Of course not! In the same way, the law was designed by God to diagnose the sinful condition of humanity – to make people aware of their need for a Saviour.


God is All-Sufficient

Read: Mark 8:1-10

The most remote inhabited island in the world is Tristan da Cunha Island, located in the South Atlantic Ocean. It is almost 2820 km from South Africa, which is the nearest mainland. The amazing thing is that 288 people live on that island. Anyone who wants to visit that island has to travel by boat for seven days because there is no airport for that island.


The Powerful Message

Read: 1 Corinthians 1:18-25

Bible teacher Lehman Strauss was brought to Christ through the power of the Word when he was young. His girlfriend suggested to him to read Romans 3:23; 5:8; and 10:13. As he read those verses, he was convicted of his sin, he wept and believed in Jesus. When his son Richard was 7 years old, he asked his father how to be saved. Lehman used the same verses that his girlfriend (who became his wife) had used years before. His son believed too, and eventually became a pastor.
