Secrets no more.

Romans 16 25 Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began 26 but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of [...]

Back to Romans

Psalms 91 is something I will probably continually go back to. It is simple and easy to read and full of life and promises from the Father. Now back to Romans. Romans 16 17 Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid [...]

The Simple

Romans 16 17 Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. 18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord [d]Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple. [...]

Paul’s Greetings

I did some digging and it appears the reason for these greetings is for the personal touch. According to records, Paul did not set this church up, nor had he even been to this church. Paul did stay well connected to other believers and through this it appears he heard about things going on in [...]

Phoebe

Romans 16 I commend to you Phoebe our sister, who is a servant of the church in Cenchrea, 2 that you may receive her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints, and assist her in whatever business she has need of you; for indeed she has been a helper of many and [...]

Nothing is free

Romans 15 For if the Gentiles have been partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister to them in material things. Paul was saying, since the Gentiles got the spiritual things, they should put money BACK into the ministry. That is their duty. Churches do not run on hopes and dreams. You [...]

Some people “know” too much.

I touched a little on this Friday, but I wanted to hit it again today. Romans 15 20 And so I have made it my aim to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build on another man’s foundation, 21 but as it is written: “To whom He was not announced, [...]

Romans 15

Romans 15 18 I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me in leading the Gentiles to obey God by what I have said and done— 19 by the power of signs and wonders, through the power of the Spirit of God. So today I will point out 2 [...]

Peace and Hope

Romans 15 12 And again, Isaiah says: “There shall be a root of Jesse; And He who shall rise to reign over the Gentiles, In Him the Gentiles shall hope.” 13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power [...]

Patience and Comfort

Romans 15 4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. 5 Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, 6 that you may with one mind [...]
