Father God, as we read this the last of Pauls words to his beloved brothers and sisters in Rome we are reminded that your WORD is as true today as it was back when it was penned. Therefore please OH God help us to pay attention and put into practice that which Paul exhorts of us today. Open our minds that they might be renewed, open our hearts that they might be restored, grant us your wisdom and discernment to understand and apply your Holy Word this day.
Amen

Message

Division / Doctrine / Destruction
Rom 16.
asdf
Romans 16:17–20 ESV
17 I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. 18 For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive. 19 For your obedience is known to all, so that I rejoice over you, but I want you to be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil. 20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
Rom 16:17-
