This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

The Scriptures —Study 26 — Romans 15:14-33
Study 26 From The Book of Romans Is: Romans 15:14-33
The Epistle from onwards has been more like a treatise than
a letter. Paul now resumes the epistolary form, and there are many links
between this closing section and 1:1-15.
1.How does Paul in verses 15-21
describe his work—in relation to its nature, scope, power and results? How far
is the description applicable to our own work in connection with the gospel?
2.What matters lay nearest to
Paul’s heart at this time, as shown in verses 20-25? Also, what may we learn
about the importance which he attached to intercessory prayer? Have we kindred
spirit and outlook?
1.Verse 16. The figure here is
that of the sacrifices of the Old Testament ritual. Paul’s work was to bring
the Gentiles to God as an offering, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
2.The contributions of the
Gentile churches to the poor of the church in Jerusalem were the result of much labour on
Paul’s part, and he looked for important results in the drawing together of
Jewish and gentile believers Cf. 2 Cor. 8 and 9, especially -15.
