    Rom 12: 4-6 Serving in the Body

    January 10, 2021 No Comment

    this humble (servant oriented) perspective of ourselves sets the stage for the following verses and dovetails nicely with verse 4 4 For just as we have many parts in one body and all the body’s parts do not have the same function, 5 so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually […]

  • Rom 12:3-4 Old Man vs New Man

    December 27, 2020 No Comment

    last week, in verse 3-4, we brought out the idea in Paul’s writings, that thinking to highly of oneself, was a form of insanity, compared to rightly thinking of oneself (i.e. seeing yourself as God sees you and how you are to fit into the body of Christ) we also discussed how the idea of […]

  • Rom 11:13 – 36 A Gift to the Gentiles

    November 22, 2020 No Comment

    Paul is still explaining God’s plan for Israel, and how the gentiles of the world fit into, but not contradict this plan. He answers questions that are not “asked” but “anticipated” and chapters 10-11 remind the reader of the “oh look, a chicken” type of letter. This is Paul’s method of being thorough in his […]

    October 25, 2020 1 comment

    Rom 10:1, 9-10, 14-17 In Romans 9-11, Paul writes a trilogy of God’s plan for Israel. (some call it past, present, future) but he interrupts his regularly scheduled programming to break down the gospel’s demand upon those who know it and to those who need to hear it. 1 Brethren, my heart’s desire and my […]

    1 I am telling the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience testifies with me in the Holy Spirit, 2 that I have great sorrow and unceasing grief in my heart. 3 For I could wish that I myself were accursed, separated from Christ for the sake of my brethren, my kinsmen according […]
