What We Have Learned So Far (PM)

Scripture Reading:  Romans 15:1–6


A.  The phrase “it is written” appears more than 200 times in the New Testament, but why would God point back so often to a covenant He was in the act of replacing (Hebrews 8:13)?

B.  Even though the laws contained in the Old Testament are no longer in effect, there is still great benefit in studying it.


I.  We learn that God never changes (Malachi 3:6–7).

A.  We learn that God has always loved His children (Deuteronomy 7:7–8; Hosea 3:1; Ezekiel 33:11; Proverbs 3:11–12).

B.  We learn that God always keeps His word (Romans 4:17; Leviticus 26:42–45; 1 Peter 1:24–25).

C.  We learn that God always holds man accountable for his actions (2 Samuel 7:14–15; Jeremiah 5:9; 7:14–15).

D.  We learn that God will never lead us astray (Psalms 23; Ezekiel 20:13; Jeremiah 5:31; cf. 23:1–2; 34:1–10).

II.  We learn that man never changes much either.

A.  It took man very little time to forget God (Genesis 6:5).

B.  Man has seldom remained faithful to God for very long (Exodus 14:11; 15:24; 16:3; Judges 2:18–19).

C.  Though it is a rare event, we learn that it is at least possible for man to change (Ezekiel 18:30–32).


A.  Although God never changes, He will help us to change.

B.  The choice, however, is yours and mine alone.
