Peace be with you all…always!

15:33 Romans “The God of peace be with you all. Amen." (NIV)

Paul ends this chapter with a short but powerful statement. It is a blessing. It is a reminder. It is a goal. We are to know the God of peace AND to know the peace of God in our hearts and minds. It is a wonderful experience to know His peace. It satisfies ALL of your longings. It fulfills ALL of your needs. It eliminates ALL of your wants. It gives you the sense of belonging to Him through Christ…forever. May you know that peace, too!

We belong to the Lord…

14:08 Romans “If we live, it's to honor the Lord. And if we die, it's to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord." (NLT)

In this chapter, Paul helps us to see that there may be some differences in how we live our lives. We have some choices. God gives us certain freedoms. We need to understand and respect that in others. Paul also states that once we are under God’s care, we also have the best of all possibilities. Nothing can ever separate us from Him. We are His now… AND forever! It just doesn’t get any better than that!

Have you heard the Good News lately?…

10:17 Romans “So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.” (NLT)

Paul emphasizes the need to have the Gospel of Jesus Christ preached so that people could hear it. It was shared in homes. It was preached in temples. It was discussed everywhere. We have so many more ways to pass on the Good News…phone, email, printed materials, social media, TV, etc., etc. and yet we often fail to share it with anyone. We are reminded that it is still the Good News that people want to hear. Pass it on today!
