Text: Romans 6:1-23. “…He died to sin once for all…”, verse 10 [NKJV]. Jesus Christ died to sin in two ways: 1. To pay sin’s penalty. A sinner bears legal requirement for punishment and Jesus Christ’s death paid for His own people – those destined to be saved. 2. Also to break the power of sin forever for[…]

Text: Romans 5:1-21. “… just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned,” verse 12 [NKJV]. Note that, here sin does not mean a particular sin but the desire to commit sin engulfed the human race whereby man became a sinner by nature. When Adam disobeyed[…]

Text: Romans 4: 1-25. It is impossible to be righteous by keeping the law. If that were so, then faith would have no value [v.14]. Instead law brings about wrath because it exposes man’s sinfulness. It is important for you to know that even Abraham was justified by faith and counted righteous before the law of circumcision v. 10. Thus[…]

Text: Romans 3:1-31. “Their throat is an open tomb; with their tongues they have practiced deceit…”, verse 13 [NKJV]. When a tomb is open you smell what is inside, a bad smell. The same thing is with a man’s heart which is not saved or a carnal Christian, it harbours foul intent and desires. Foul words point to a decaying[…]

Text: Romans 2:1-29. In the epistle to Romans, Paul was mainly targeting Jews and converted gentiles who thought they were right with God and therefore not to be judged but instead to judge others. They were mistaken, because of their knowledge, they had demanded higher accountability and hence higher accountability was equally demanded of them. If you can judge[…]

Text: Romans 1:1-32. Paul notes that he is not ashamed of the gospel because of the experience he had gone through. Imprisoned in Philippi [Acts 16:23-24], chased out of Thessalonica [Acts 17:10], smuggled out of Berea [Acts 17:14], laughed at in Athens [Acts 17:13] and stoned in Galatia [Acts 14:19]. However, Paul still maintained that he was not[…]

Text: Nehemiah 13:1-31. “Before this, Eliashib the Priest had been put in charge of the store rooms of the house of our God. He was closely associated with Tobiah, and he had provided him with a large room formerly used to store the grain offering…,” verses 4-5 [NIV]. How could Tobiah, an Ammorite, an enemy of Israel, who resisted the[…]

Text: Nehemiah 12:1-47. “When the priests and Levites had purified themselves ceremonially, they purified the people, the gates and the wall,” verse 30 [NIV]. The purification process was a symbol of moral purity [Lev. 16:30]. Today the blood of Jesus Christ washes away the sinner’s sins when you receive and believe in Jesus Christ. By faith you attain righteousness[…]

Text: Nehemiah 11:1-36. “The people commended all the men who volunteered to live in Jerusalem,” verse 2 [NIV]. When the walls were completed, the population that was available to live within them was small. Nehemiah used the casting of lots to determine one out of ten to come in. Some people feared to come in and chose to remain[…]

Text: Nehemiah 10:1-39. “When the neighbouring peoples bring merchandise or grain to sell on the Sabbath, we will not buy from them on the Sabbath or on any holy day…”, verse 31 [NIV]. The children of Israel vowed to observe the fourth commandment. Let us too observe God’s Law as Christians. Let us treat Sunday as a special day,[…]
