Introducing our “Reading Romans Through Lent” series of devotions
If, when it comes down to it, we go through all the rigmarole of our religious practices and we don’t become more like Christ because for all our piety we don’t act like him, then all our pious devotions do is expose us as hypocrites.
What matters is that we all sin, and that, as a consequence, none of us can take the moral high ground over one another.
If you want to help anyone who lives primarily in a Christian environment understand the whole of British society, this is an excellent place to start.
In order to rejoice properly in how great a salvation God has given us in Christ, we need to be realistic about how far we have fallen.
Paul rejoices! He praises! He gives thanks! And he encourages.
Pray that this Lent God will deepen our knowledge of Christ and our love for him as we read what St Paul has to say.
