THE NEW TESTAMENT 93-DAY CHRONOLOGICAL READING PLAN – Day 69 Assignment

Moments with God
New Testament Bible Reading Plan
Day 69As I read today’s assignment in Romans, Chapters 4-7, a song kept running through my mind. I think it really speaks to what Paul is sharing in these chapters.

“You are good, You are good
When there’s nothing good in me
You are love, You are love
On display for all to see
You are light, You are light
When the darkness closes in
You are hope, You are hope
You have covered all my sin

You are peace, You are peace
When my fear is crippling
You are true, You are true
Even in my wandering
You are joy, You are joy
You’re the reason that I sing
You are life, You are life,
In You death has lost its sting

Oh, I’m running to Your arms,
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

You are more, You are more
Than my words will ever say
You are Lord, You are Lord
All creation will proclaim
You are here, You are here
In Your presence I’m made whole
You are God, You are God
Of all else I’m letting go

Oh, I’m running to Your arms
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

My heart will sing
no other Name
Jesus, Jesus

Oh, I’m running to Your arms
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign”

“Oh, what joy for those
whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sins are put out of sight.
Yes, what joy for those
whose record the Lord has cleared of sin.” Romans 4:7-8

Study Questions for Romans 4

Abraham and David, Forefathers of Faith (4:1-8)

What characterizes Abraham’s faith? (1-3) What did he believe? (4:1-5; 9-25; Gen. 15:1-6)

What did David have in common with Abraham? (4:6-8) What did David learn about the blessedness of being forgiven? (4:7, 8; Ps. 32: 1-5; 2 Sa. 12:7-13) How can we apply these lessons of faith? (4:23-25)

“When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.” Romans 5:6-11 

Study Questions for Romans 5

The Results of Justification Through Faith (1-11)

According to verse 1, what is the first and most basic result of being justified through faith? What does this mean? (9,10) What does it mean in our practical lives to have peace with God? (For further thought see Isa. 26:3; 32:17; Jn. 14:27; Jer. 8:11)

Look at verses 2 and 3. What is the second result of justification? What are the things in which we rejoice? What is the source of our joy? How do our hopes change?

What is the attitude toward suffering of people who do not know Jesus? What should be our attitude? (3-5) Why? (1 Peter 1:7; 3:17; 4:13) What other fruit does suffering produce in one who has been justified through faith?

What should we remember about our lives before we were justified through faith? (6, 8, 9, 10) What makes people so powerless?

What did God do with such ungodly people? (6-8) Why? What is our assurance? (9,10) What should be our attitude toward God’s grace?

Death Through Adam, Life Through Christ (12-21)

Read verses 12-21. What do these verses teach about the crucial importance of one man? About the relationship between pride, disobedience, sin and death? About obedience, the gift of righteousness, grace and life?

“Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it? Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death? For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.” Romans 6:1-4

Study Questions for Romans 6

Union with Christ in His Death and Resurrection (1-10)

Why can we not go on sinning-keep on living the same old life-after being justified by faith? (1,2) What does it mean to be baptized in Christ Jesus ? (3,4)

In what ways do Jesus’ death and resurrection affect us? (5-10) Why is the basis of our new direction of life? (4:8, Gal 2:20)

Dead to Sin, but Alive to God (11-14)

Read verses 11-14. Is the battle with sin automatically over when we are born again? Practically, how should we deal with the remains of the sinful desires in our bodies? (11,12)

What decision of faith must we make? (13) Why are we to be instruments of righteousness? (14)

From Slaves to Sin to Slaves to God (15-23)

Read verses 15-23. How is the relationship between masters and slaves demonstrated? (15,16) How are Christians who were set free from sin to live? (17,18)

What is the outcome of giving in to sin, living “naturally”? (19a) How can we grow in holiness? (19b-20) What is the outcome of each? (21-23)

“I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. I love God’s law with all my heart. But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin.” Romans 7:21-25

Study Questions for Romans 7

A New Life in Jesus (1-6)

To whom is Paul speaking in these verses? What does it mean to be committed to the law? What are the limits of the law’s authority over a person?

Read verses 2 and 3. Why does Paul use the law of marriage as an example? In what sense had he been married to the law? According to the law, how can the bonds of marriage be dissolved?

How is it that we have died to the law? (6:2) In what respect are we free? (6:15) To whom do we now belong? What is the nature of our new relationship to Jesus? (Isa. 54:5; 2 Co. 11:2; Rom. 8:38,39)

Why did Jesus save us and make us his own bride? (4b) What is the fruit of the new union? (Rom. 5:1; Gal. 5:22,23; John 15:16) How does Psalm 1:2-4 describe the committed life? The uncommitted life?

What kind of fruit did we bear when we were under the law? Why? What is the difference between serving in the new way of the Spirit and serving in the old way of the law?

Faith Grows Through Spiritual Struggles (7-24)

Is the law sinful? (7,12) What is its function? (7,13,3:20; Gal. 3:24) Which commandment defeated Paul? Why did he say that the commandment brought death to him? How is the 10th commandment different from the others?

Read verses 14-20. What is the struggle that goes on inside one who wants to do what is right? (Heb. 12:4) Why is it good and necessary to struggle with sin? (Rom. 7:8a; Gen. 4:7b)

What do these verses teach about the nature of man? About why Paul speaks of life as a spiritual battle? (1 Tim.1:18, 6:12, 2 Ti. 4:7) Why is it important to struggle with God rather than with men?

Read verses 21-24 and 25b. What are the two spiritual principles at work within us? Why does Paul delight in God’s law? What is the war that is going on inside him? What is his cry? (24) What doe he realize? (25b)

Jesus Christ, The Only Salvation (25)

What is the only way in this defeated situation? What is Paul’s cause for thanksgiving? What can we learn here?
