Romans is brilliant


The message to the Romans began with truth telling about the problem of the human condition. After presenting God’s solution through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the prospects become brilliant.

To believers, God imparts His love. Acceptance into God’s family that supersedes death in Adam’s family. Victory over debilitating sin is promised to all who surrender to the Lord. Eternal life is given as a free gift. Liberty from the demands of Moses law is real, as one lives and walks in the light and control of the Holy Spirit.

But that’s not all! The future hope of participating in a changed creation. The future prospect of being changed into the image of the Son of God – wow  !

How can all this be real for an unworthy Christian? It will be so because this agenda of undeserved favour (grace) is driven by unquenchable love – God’s love.

What about the reality of our world gone mad? Yes chapter nine to eleven handles that quite well. Human rebellion has been happening for a long time – both in heathen culture and Jewish privilege, but God is not defeated. He will gather together all things in Christ, and the present day chaos is a very real indication, it could be very soon.

Much detail could be given, but the conclusion of chapter 11 is so good.

       “Oh the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God. How unsearchable are His judgements and His ways past finding out.

      For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen”

Please read Romans again and if never before , find you peace and hope in what God has done and is doing now.
