11am Service 6 September 2020
Dear GCBC Parents:
This Sunday begins our series through the book of Romans. Jason will give an introductory overview of the book with some historical context of the Roman church as well as the importance of the Gospel in our individual lives, the life of the church, and for the whole world. Romans is a foundational book for our faith. I pray we can discuss what we learn as families and how we can apply its truths to our lives.

The Do Good Ladder
Draw the ladder Pastor Jason uses to describe how we cannot do enough to to be acceptable to God. Only Jesus was perfect, and faith alone in what he has done on the cross makes us pleasing to God.
Romans 1:16-17 – “For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.””
Romans 3:23 – “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.”
Romans 6:23 – “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Philippians 3:8-9 – “Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.”
