Day 2 of 21
Key Passage: Romans 7.19
God knows everything about us. It’s crazy that the God of the universe knows what we’re thinking. If we’re honest with ourselves, it can be overwhelming. God hears that intense, internal dialogue we have about someone that really frustrates us. God knows about the junk in our lives. Today, we’ll read about the apostle Paul’s struggle with sin. Scholars differ as to whether Paul’s referring to his current experience or the time just before his conversion. Regardless, let’s dig in and we’ll find we have some things in common with Paul. Contemplating our sin can be like fingernails on a chalkboard. We don’t want to go there, but it makes Christ’s forgiveness and grace even more meaningful.
Main Passage: Romans 7.14-25
Tomorrow we’re going to look at what God has done for us in Christ in Romans 8.1-17.
As a team, it is our prayer that Catalyst would spark a life-changing encounter with Jesus that would continue well after the event. Let’s dive deeper into the Holy Scriptures with this reading plan developed with American Bible Society. You’re the fulfillment of answered prayers; a generation desiring to know God and to be known by him. It’s on that foundation alone that we believe we will change the world.
We would like to thank Catalyst and the American Bible Society for providing this plan. For more information, please visit: www.catalystconference.com
