This post is going to be long. In an effort to have a cohesive flow of thought, the outlines from Bible studies in Romans from recent months is given here. Each study starts with a new section, clearly marked, with points of application along the way.
A Brief Summary: Paul’s benediction which concludes his theological argument for one new redeemed humanity of God’s chosen people in Romans 1-11 reads, “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen” (Rom. 11:36). “From Him” is the gift of a righteous life in Christ (Rom. 1:16-17) and the hope of the “redemption of our bodies” in which we share in His glory (Rom. 8:23, 30). “Through Him” and His covenant with Abraham, we can overcome the Flesh by the power of the Holy Spirit (Rom. 2:29; 4:9-12; 7:21–8:2; 8:16-17, 26-27). “To Him are all things” implies that we should simply present ourselves to Him (Rom. 6:19; 12:1-2) to become like Him—the only good (Rom. 8:28-30).
