Joining the Spirit’s Groan (Romans 8:12-25)

As Christians, do we suffer?  Do we groan?  Today we continue our look at the theology for ministry in Paul's letter to the church in Rome.  The difference for us as Christians is that when we suffer and groan, we have hope for God's glory to come.  (This episode was recorded at Ebenezer UMC on July 20, 2014)

Focused on the Spirit (Romans 8:1-11)

Do we focus on the flesh, or do we focus on the Spirit?  It's an ongoing battle that we as Christians face every day.  This week we will look at three ways that God's spirit speaks directly to us, and ways in which we can more keenly hear Him.  (This episode was recorded at Hudson UMC on July 13, 2014)

Grace Greater than Our Sin (Romans 3:21-26)

Paul's words remind us that there is none righteous, no, not one.  If that's the case, then what hope can there be for the sinner?  Well today we look at Paul's words to the church in Rome and find that there is, indeed, hope that can only be found in the Grace of God.  (This episode was recorded at Pitman Grove Camp Meeting on July 6, 2014)

Sanctifying Grace: Our Need and God’s Provision (Romans 7:15-25a)

What is Sanctifying Grace, and how does the Holy Spirit work within us?  Today we continue our series titled "Theology of Ministry" and look at Paul's words to the church in Rome as he describes his own struggle with sin.  It's gratifying to know we are not alone in our struggle.  (This episode was recorded at Ebenezer UMC on July 6, 2014)

Freed from Self, Embraced in the Body (Romans 6:12-23)

When we sin, we cause pain.  Not just to ourselves but to others around us.  Today we look at sin and its consequence, death, and we look at what God did to break the cycle of sin and free us for joyful obedience in Christ.

Raised to New Life (Theology of Ministry pt. 1)

This week we begin a new sermon series called "Theology of Ministry," and we will be spending a great deal of time this Summer in the book of Romans.  We can learn a lot from Paul's letter to the church in Rome.  Today we are looking at what it means to be baptized into death, and raised into newness of life in Christ.  (Recorded at Ebenezer United Methodist Church in Auburn, NJ on June 22, 2014)
