On Faithroots Live, I’ve been working through some studies in Romans. However, these types of studies are a little different from preaching with the specific purpose of applying God’s Word to life now. So, here’s an outline of a preached version of Romans 5:6-11 which we looked at recently.

Here’s the recording of this week’s Faithroots Live looking at how the Bible names God as Father.
Here’s our latest #FaithrootsLive video to watch with some questions to pause and discuss along the way.
