Luke, John, Acts, & Romans


What I Read:

Day 24: Luke 10-24, John, Acts 1-13

Day 25: Acts 14-28, Romans

Saints Peter and Paul Church

My Impressions:

  • The gospel of John is quite different from the other three with different stories and a focus on Jesus being the son of God.
  • Much of the Christian language and understanding of what Jesus did and what his death and life mean for us is found in Romans.
  • Reading Romans this time through I got a much deeper sense of the call to fully and completely trust and put faith in God.
  • In particular I was struck by how Paul defines sin in Romans 14:23:

    But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin.

    Sin is anything that hinders my faith and trust in God, because it slowly destroys my relationship with God as I rely more and more on myself. I think this explains so much of my own experience.
