Introduction to the Book of Romans, Part 2
The Church was ment to be seen!
The Church is not about gaining, it is about giving!
Serving God in the Church is not about choice, it is about duty!
Paul understood that he was an apostle simply by the grace of God and that it was an unspeakable privilege for him to have that office. He realised that once Christ had commissioned him to carry the gospel throughout the world, to the Greeks, to the non-Greeks, to the wise, to the foolish, to the lettered and the unlettered, to the great and the small, he was under obligation to fulfil his calling. Love of Christ constrained him to carry out his commission.
