Romans Part 2: Our Response
In this series Shane will continue to take you on a journey through Paul's letter to the church in Rome where Jews and Gentiles were trying to navigate how to live together. The Gentiles had converted and were worshipping the Jewish God while ignoring some of the rules. One can imagine the problem that would have created!
Paul's answer was that the gospel, the faith of God revealed in Christ's faith, and the resurrection of Jesus changed everything. The gospel culminates with the establishment of a new people. Jew and Gentile together as one new humanity. In this masterpiece sermon, Paul outlines a vision of how we can all live in peace now... peace with God evidenced by peace with others. To Paul, to accept one another is part of our worship to God for that is what Christ did for us.
