Understanding What You Already Believe.
Whether you are a brand new believer or have been a mature Christian for many years, your choice to follow Jesus means that youve begun a lifelong journeya processthat puts you in a place where Gods Spirit can touch and transform your life. Your choices will now connect what you believe in the spiritual realm with what you do in the temporal world. But making that connection doesnt always come naturally. Thats where the creeds, confessions, and spiritual disciplines that have nurtured and strengthened believers throughout Christian history can also help you.
One such devotional aid is the Heidelberg Catechism, written during the Reformation. Randal Working incorporates this question-and-answer survey of the apostle Pauls epistle to the Romans into a devotional format that follows a simple outline:
- Guiltour utter brokenness and need for redemption
- Gracewhat God has done to redeem and restore us to a right relationship with Him
- Gratitudeour response to grace, demonstrated by a new way of living
In addition to providing a 52-week mini Bible course on Romans, From Rebellion to Redemption deftly weaves the study with prayer, Scripture reading, writings from a broad spectrum of Christian thinkers, and commentary with questions for reflection and discussion. The combination produces a rich worship experience built around the exploration of key doctrines of our faith. The result is a systematic and personal approach for individual or group study that allows you to take spiritual inventory, consider the great themes of Christianity, and find strength for your journey into deeper intimacy with God.
