Big Idea of the Series: This four-week series takes an in-depth look at the eighth chapter of Romans. Exploring what it means to walk in new life in Christ, this series emphasizes our freedom from condemnation from God, from ourselves, and from the world around us because of Jesus’s finished work on the cross. Because of what Jesus accomplished for us, we can have hope as we are transformed into his image, regardless of our earthly circumstances.
Week 1 Topic: Condemnation, New Life, Pardon, Forgiveness
Week 1 Big Idea: There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ: Jesus has fulfilled the requirements of the law that we could never fulfill on our own.
Week 1 Application point: If we are in Christ, his Spirit lives in us and gives us new life.
