The two greatest words in the NT

'This letter is truly the most important piece in the New Testament. It is purest Gospel. It is well worth a Christian's while not only to memorize it word for word but also to occupy himself with it daily, as though it were the daily bread of the soul. It is impossible to read or to meditate on this letter too much or too well. The more one deals with it, the more precious it becomes and the better it tastes.'

Martin Luther's Preface to his Commentary on Romans

Today we have our first service at Holy Trinity Barnes.

It may not surprise readers to know that I will preach my first sermon from Romans.

As I have studied and worked to establish this day over these last few weeks, I have been reminded once again of grace.

Two words have struck my heart afresh like a thunderbolt and if you see them they will change everything for you.

'But now......'
