Re: Verse reading–Romans 1:1–17 (day five)
In the first part of Romans chapter1, Paul does an amazing job of theologically expounding on who Jesus is and how He connects to the Gospel. It is strong, clear, and concise.
He also has theological thoughts and insights about how faith operates when Christians are gathered together. “12 that is, that I may be encouraged together with you while among you, each of us by the other’s faith, both yours and mine.”
Paul makes it clear that encouragement can come to each believer- from the strongest in faith to the weakest- from the newest to the most seasoned. Every one of us fits in these parameters somewhere.
Let us gather Sunday with anticipation and joy- from the weakest to the strongest- from the newest to the most seasoned. Let us be encouraged by vibrant and authentic faith as we pray, worship, study, and influence each other!!
