FRIDAY (9/18/20)

Read Romans 1:24-32

  • How does God respond when people ignore and deny Him?
  • How are attitudes towards sexuality impacted when God is disregarded?
  • How do we/you, today, worship and serve created things rather than the Creator?
  • What are the things that we are tempted to serve? How does this relate to sexuality?
  • How is the truth about God suppressed?

WEEK 1 MEMORY VERSE:
ROMANS 1:17
For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”

THURSDAY (9/17/20)

Read Romans 1:18-23

  • What pops out to you today from this section of verses?
  • When I read these verses, it’s like Paul is delivering the State of the World address. What’s true of Paul’s world?
  • What’s the state of our world right now?
  • How do you think people today distinguish between right and wrong? What about you?

WEDNESDAY (9/16/20)

Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to lead and guide as you read.

Read Romans 1:8-17

  • How does Paul communicate that he loves these people dearly? Who does this remind you of in your life? Who is constantly in your prayers because they are so dear to you?
  • Paul says that everywhere people are talking about the faith of the Romans. If you asked someone close to you about your faith, what do you think they would say?
  • As we read through Romans this fall, where would you like to see your faith grow? What is a spiritual goal that you would like to set for yourself?
  • What do you think it means that the righteous will live by faith?

TUESDAY (9/15/20)

As you read today, pray and ask the Holy Spirit to teach you through this passage.

Read Romans 1, then focus on Romans 1:1-7

  • How does Paul introduce himself and what do you learn about him from these verses?
  • What do you feel set apart to do? Consider your specific set of gifts, abilities, and talents.
  • Why do you think Paul believes that obedience naturally follows genuine faith (also see James 2:14-26)?

Sit for a moment and just think about verse 7. You are loved by God. Just sit and think about how deep God’s love is.

Sunday (9/13/20)

We’ve read the entire book of Proverbs and tomorrow will start Romans at a slower pace. 🙂

Spend some time this morning in thankfulness. List out either in writing or in spoken words what you are thankful for from this past week.

Saturday (9/12/20)

Page back through all of the verses you had written down. Read aloud each verse. This will take you a few minutes- but I think it will be worth the effort.

  • You have compiled your own short series of the Proverbs- verses that the Holy Spirit made pop off the page for you to pay attention to. We can’t change what we don’t pay attention to!

What is one action point from all these verses? What will you implement into your daily life?
