The Apostle Paul's letter to the church of Rome, which we find in the Bible, is a wealth of information on the Christian faith. In this short, four-week series, Pastor Stephen leads us in a 10,000 ft overview of Paul's masterpiece focused on the essentials--the foundation, or "brass-tacks"--of the Christian faith.
All three message videos from our series on pride and humility called “Knocking Ourselves Down a Peg” can be watched here for your convenience.

John 1:14 NIV
This Christmas, you can know God and see his glory by knowing Jesus as God’s Only Son.
Jesus was not:
Just a man used by God.
Just God with the appearance of man.
God made flesh.
The Only Son of God
Emmanuel: God with Us.
God coming to be with us as one of us us called the Incarnation.
In the Incarnation:
God experienced life and death as one of us.
God revealed himself to us in a way he’d never done before.
God brought light into the darkness.
You can either reject Jesus outright, or you can accept his claim wholly. It’s a take it or leave it situation.

John 1:9-13 NLT
Isaiah 53:3-11 NLT
Jesus was rejected by humanity so we could be accepted by God.
This was the greatest trade in history: Jesus offers to trade his sinless identity as a child of God in exchange for him taking on himself our identities as law-breaking criminals against God.
This trade is birthed in love and given as a gift.
Walk in the light of new life and become a child of God.
