(Example) DISCUSSION EXAMPLEThe following examples are based on the book Reading Romans with Luther by R.J. Grunewald.Even though you may not be familiar with this book, you should be able to get a general idea ofwhat is expected from each of our discussion board assignments based on these answers as theyrelate to the content of this book.A. Module 1: Week 1Thread: Learning Log“Jesus turns our inward curve out toward our neighbors. When selfishness has made usworship only what pleases us. Jesus is at work in us making us forget ourselves. Jesusgives us new sight as we see our neighbors the way He sees our neighbors” (Grunewald, p.124).This quote is a reminder that our actions after salvation should be directed towards othersrather than singularly towards ourselves. Since we are Christ’s ambassadors, we carry Hismessage with both our words and our actions. If we are confused as to what that looks like,we only need to familiarize ourselves with the example of Christ.Continue with 9 other quotes and interactions from the assigned readingB. Module 3: Week 3Thread: Squares, Triangles, Circles, and Hearts Squares:1. Because of sin, our nature (human nature) is curved in upon itself. This is what istheologically known as original sin. The Old Testament prophet Jeremiah understood thisand wrote, “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked.Who really knows how bad it is?” (Jeremiah 17:9)2. The heart is co corrupted by sin that it will fear, love, and trust anything and anyonebut God. Therefore, culture ideas like “trust your heart” or “follow your heart” should notbe heeded. This kind of advice will only lead away from God.3. “God always meets us when rock meets bottom. He promises to meet us in the place ofdespair” (Grunewald, p.101). Thus, it is in places of lowliness, weakness, and brokennessthat we are must likely to find God. It is in these places that we will find the presence ofGod and not the absence of God.BIBL 104Page 2 of 44. Christians love their neighbor not out of obligation but out of a heart overflowing withthe love of Jesus. This is the heart of a servant. This is also the heart of Jesus whodemonstrated through his actions what being a servant looked like. Triangles:1. Sin is ultimately the worship of self and therefore a worship problem.2. According to Luther, one reason that people leave the church is because sin isdownplayed and good works is promoted making people think they are already goodenough or righteous enough for God’s acceptance.3. “Christian growth is not primarily about sinning less. Christian growth is a war withinus that is won by the Spirit through the Gospel…As you grow you will realize more andmore how big the problem of sin is…Growth isn’t about needing the cross less, it’s aboutthe cross doing its work daily. As we become acutely aware of what need to be put todeath our daily lives transform” (Grunewald, p. 96). Circles:1. How else does Paul describe the difference between the carnal and the spiritual man inhis other letters and does Luther’s understanding in Romans fit with these descriiptions?2. How does Luther’s understanding of the gifts listed in Romans (Prophecy, Service,Teaching, Exhortation, Generosity, Leadership, and Mercy) fit with the other places Paultalks about gifts in his letters? Hearts:1. “Grace is the pronouncement of your relationship to the Father, and it has nothing todo with whether you are a well-behaved child of the Father” (Grunewald, p. 39).BIBL 104Page 3 of 4C. Module 6: Week 6Thread: 3-2-1 3 concepts that improved, clarified, or adjusted my knowledge from this week’s reading.There is a definite link between justification and sanctification. Grunewald expresses itthis way, “Justification always effects our sanctification. In other words, the grace thatsaves us also changes us” (Grunewald, p. 105). This connection is rooted in Jesus Christwho is at work within us re-creating us to be people who love the people around us.The gifts and opportunities God gives us are so that we can serve the people around us.They are not because “He” needs something. We are given them because “they” needssomething. Grunewald writes, “Our neighbors need our good works. Jesus doesn’t needour love and service by our neighbors do. Jesus doesn’t need our food in order to survive,but our neighbors might. Jesus doesn’t need us to protects Him and care for Him but ourchildren do need care and protection” (Grunewald, p. 110). Thus, we are blessed to be ablessing. We have received good things so that we can share those good things with ourneighbors.The transformation in the believer is being orchestrated by Jesus and it turns our curvedinward bend to an outward bend. In other words, we are being reshaped so that instead ofan inward gaze at our own life we have an outward look to the needs of our neighbor.Grunewald notes, “Jesus turns our inward curves out toward our neighbors. Whenselfishness has made us worship only what pleases us, Jesus is at work in us making usforget ourselves. Jesus gives us new sight as we see our neighbors the way He sees ourneighbors” (Grunewald, p. 124). One practical outgrowth of sanctification is that webegin to see the needs of others and the way in which God has gifted us to meet thoseneeds.
