Battling

Romans 7:15–25 (NIV) 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing.

My dear friends in Christ,

We have been working our way through the Basics of the Christian Faith one word at a time. Let’s go back and review the words we’ve focused on so far. Trinity—our God is three persons yet still one God. Shepherd—Jesus is the Good Shepherd who walks the walk for us. Righteousness—we are in a right relationship with God thanks to Jesus. Reconciliation—we have peace with God through Jesus’ death and resurrection. Resurrection—Jesus is alive! He has defeated death so that we can live forever!

Basic Bible Christianity

There is nothing more powerful in this world than the living and active Word of God. It has the power to change lives, to transform character, and most important, to rescue human beings from death and eternal destruction by giving the gift of forgiveness and free salvation through Jesus.

We want you to participate in a life-changing experience! Join us for Basic Bible Christianity, an introduction to the Christian faith. Pastor Brohn will lead the class on Monday evenings at 7:00 p.m.. The class meets at Salem Lutheran Church and School, 14940 62nd St N, Stillwater MN. We will meet in the Conference Room, located on the upper level of the school building. You do not need to bring anything, but are welcome to bring a Bible if you own one.

Continue the conversation here! Materials from the class will be posted for each lesson below.
