Romans Commentary David Guzik

a. Where sin abounds, grace abounds even more: Where sin abounds under the law, grace abounds even more under Jesus. The phrase abounded much more literally means super-abundant. God multiplies His grace over abounding sin! i. We might have expected that where sin was abundant, God's wrath or judgment would be abundant as well. But God's love is so incredible that grace abounds where we might have expected wrath.

Commentary on the New Testament letter to the Romans verse by verse.

Many consider the Book of Romans to be the Apostle Paul's most significant contribution to the New Testament. According to Martin Luther, Romans is the main part of the New Testament and the perfect gospel...the absolute epitome of the gospel. Others have referred to Romans as the cathedral of the Christian faith.

iii. Anyone who says, "I don't want to be represented by Adam or Jesus; I want to represent myself," is missing two points. First, they don't realize it's not really up to us. God made the rules, not us. Second, they fail to recognize that our personal righteousness before God is as filthy as rags (Isaiah 64:6). Our personal righteousness is an offensive counterfeit to God, so standing for yourself ensures damnation. 6. (20a) The Law's Purpose

1. (Romans 10:1-3) Israel's refusal to submit to God's righteousness.

My heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel, brothers and sisters, is that they be saved. For I bear witness that they have zeal for God, but it is not based on knowledge. Because they were ignorant of God's righteousness and sought to establish their own righteousness, they did not submit to God's righteousness.

Romans 8 Commentary David Guzik

ii. Let us also serve the Lord when every movement hurts and even thinking is exhausting. These men were dizzy. You know what it's like for a soldier to faint; there's no nonsense, no presence, just pure fainting. But to keep going when you're about to faint, to keep going when you're about to drop, this is very difficult work; but let us do it, brethren, by God's grace. Some people only pray when they feel like it, but we need to pray the most when we don't feel like it. If we were only to preach, some of us should only preach when we felt like it. (Spurgeon) b. Please give the people who follow me loaves of bread: The people of Succoth were summoned to support those fighting in the battle through Gideon. They were not asked to fight in the battle, but rather to assist those on the front lines.

He brings us to repentance. He leads us to think little of ourselves and much of Jesus. He leads us into truth, into love, into holiness, and into usefulness. b. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage to fear again, but rather the Spirit of adoption: Living as a child of God entails an intimate, joyful relationship with God, as opposed to the law's bondage and fear. A child of God can have such a close relationship with God that they may cry out, Abba, Father! (Daddy!)

c. In order for Him to establish His covenant: This reminds us of why God has blessed us. His plan is that it will eventually advance His eternal purpose. As a result, we have no right to use our material blessings for selfish ends; instead, we must use our resources to advance His kingdom. 3. (19-20) The cost of arrogance in the blessed life.

b. He who does them shall live by them: The Law of Moses lays out the path to righteousness through the law. You must do the law completely and perfectly if you want to live by the law (find life through the law). c. However, the righteousness of faith is based on Jesus, and we do not have to work to obtain Jesus. We don't have to ascend into heaven or descend into the abyss to find Jesus. We trust and receive.

Romans 7 Commentary David Guzik

The Book of 1 Kings begins with a promising Kingdom of Israel. David had been a great king and was about to hand over the reign to his son Solomon. Unfortunately, only one generation would pass before the kingdom was divided and turned away from their Lord and God. The unfaithfulness of Israel contrasts sharply with the God's faithfulness, who sent prophets and signs to the rulers and people, giving them every opportunity to repent and return to Him. David Guzik explains the Book of 1 Kings chapter by chapter, verse by verse, assisting you in comprehending this dramatic account of God's love, patience, and faithfulness to His people.

Paperback. Good condition. A copy in good condition is one that has been read but is still in pristine condition. The pages are all intact, as is the cover, and the spine may show signs of wear. Minor markings may exist in the book that are not specifically mentioned. Most items will be shipped the same or next business day.

i. We recall that Jesus demanded righteousness greater than that of the scribes and Pharisees (Matthew 5:20). Some people believe that being more judgmental of others will make one more righteous. That kind of thinking was condemned by Jesus here. b. Judge not, lest you be judged: With this command, Jesus warned against passing judgment on others, because we will be judged in the same way.

You shall burn the carved images of their gods with fire; you shall not covet or take the silver or gold that is on them, lest you be snared by it, for it is an abomination to the LORD your God. You shall not bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to the same fate as it. Because it is a cursed thing, you will despise and abhor it completely. 2018 Guzik, David Without permission, no distribution beyond personal use is permitted.

Romans 1 Commentary David Guzik

ii. The human race put God to the test in order to approve Him if He met the specifications it set for a God who would be to its liking, and when He did not meet those specifications, it refused to approve Him as the God to be worshipped or have Him in its knowledge. (Wuest) iii. A debased mind: Our rebellion against God is manifested not only in our actions, but also in our thoughts. In our rebellion against God, we are truly spiritually insane.

d. We were reconciled to God through the death of His Son... rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus... through whom we have now received the reconciliation: The point is clearly made. What matters is what we have in Christ. What we have obtained through our own efforts is insignificant and cannot assist us. It's all because of Jesus. B. The Two Gentlemen.

I've bought six of David Guzik's commentaries so far, after peeking inside a couple of them. I just finished reading the commentary on Romans chapter one and found it to be useful, interesting, and entertaining. He employs simple language and quotes other commentators to provide a thorough understanding of the text. I'm looking forward to reading his verse-by-verse commentaries, which I purchased, and I plan to buy the entire set for my Kindle. You can't go wrong at these prices. I've given it five stars based on what I've read so far, and if the rest is as good, I'll be very happy.
