Women’s Evening Bible Study
Romans by Melissa Spoelstra
Bad News surrounds us. It comes through our phone, computer, and television screens. We encounter it in doctors’ offices, the workplace, and our own homes. If we’re not careful, we can drift toward cynicism, fear, or despair. As followers of Jesus, we must not lose sight of the fact that God has given us good news. We call it the gospel; it reminds us that God loves us and longs to redeem our suffering. The gospel truths shared with the early church at Rome echo into our day, reminding us that we still have good news to embrace personally and to share with others.
In this six-week study of Romans, we will take a posture of listening and learning as we approach this powerful book packed with good news. Specifically, we’ll be highlighting significant concepts regarding the good news about faith, hope, daily life, God’s plan, relationships and eternity. Whatever bad news we may be facing, in Romans we’ll find good news that encourage, inspire and transform us, bringing about a spiritual renewal that will spread to those around us.
