On Sunday we looked at the concluding doxology of Paul’s letter to the Romans. This gave us the opportunity to consider four reflections on the gospel. First, God strengthens us in the gospel. It is through the news about what Christ has done that we see clearly that God is for us. Second, the gospel is the mystery revealed. Jesus Christ becomes the clear answer to our questions about God. Third, the gospel is going viral around the world. Paul’s heart for the Romans represents God’s heart for all nations. Fourth, the gospel must be believed and lived out. Through the gospel God will bring about the obedience of faith in every nation. Because of this, God alone will receive the glory for what he has done. We are so thankful for this message in Romans.
