God is right to do that which successfully pursues His own glory to the greatest degree. In this message from Romans 9:19-24, Pastor Ritch begins to unpack the deep theological lessons from one of the most challenging passages in the Bible.
In order to be justified, we need to meet the condition that God establishes for us: belief in Jesus as our Savior. But in order to be elect by God, we have no condition we can meet; God must choose us. Is God fair to accept some while rejecting others? Pastor Ritch explores this question through the lens of Romans 9:6-18.
In this Easter message, Pastor Ritch teaches the third sermon in our three-part series, The Resurrection, and shares about the hope and eternal joy that belongs to every believer because of Jesus victory over death.
Because God chose to set His love upon His children in eternity past, we who are His children know for certain that our future is one of unending joy and glory in God. In this message from Romans 8:31-32, Pastor Ritch teaches about the unstoppable love of God.
When we realize our own hopeless condition before God, we can only rejoice when Paul proclaims “No condemnation!” In this message from Romans 8:1, Pastor Ritch teaches how this short verse ties together the first seven chapters of Romans to give us an unquenchable hope through the Gospel of Christ.
In this message from Romans 6:5-14, Pastor Ritch explains that we must stop trying to think positively to gain victory over sin, and instead begin to think doctrinally in order to develop a clearer understanding of the finished work of the Gospel.
God’s grace is greater than all our sin. It is greater than the condemnation our sin merits, greater than the enslavement our sin creates, and it covers whatever spiritual debt our sin incurs in our lives. Pastor Ritch teaches the astonishing truth of that statement in this two-part message from Romans 5:20-6:2.
