Romans 15

Author

Dave Bruechert

Scripture

Romans 15:1-33

Observations

- Those who are strong in the faith should support those who are weaker and build them up.
- Follow Christ’s example of giving himself for us when we were weak.
- Though God’s strength and Christ’s attitude, we should glorify God in a unified mind and voice.
- A unified body of believers brings praise to God.
- Christ became a servant to the Jews, so that the promises to the patriarchs regarding the Gentiles praising God will be confirmed.
- He quotes 4 Hebrew Scriptures about the blessing to the Gentiles.
- Even though the Romans are able to teach each other, Paul boldly reminds them of some points in this letter.
- By God’s grace, Paul is a minister to the Gentiles. His priestly duty is to proclaim the gospel.
- The Spirit of God led Paul in what he said and is the power for the signs and wonders Paul does.
- Paul’s goal is to preach the gospel where it hasn’t been preached before. He has been hindered in coming to Rome because they had already heard the gospel.
- Since there are no more places where the gospel hasn’t been preached (in the area of the world he could reach), he plans to visit Rome. He plans to deliver the contributions from Macedonia and Achaia to Jerusalem first and stop in Rome on his way to Spain.
- He again stresses unity by the Jews and Gentiles sharing both spiritual and material blessings.
- Paul asks them to pray for him.

Application

There is a lot of emphasis in this chapter about unity. Being unified is not just an attitude, but it’s action as well. We support and build up those whose faith is weaker. We glorify God in one voice. The Gentiles share in the Jews’ spiritual blessing and the Jews share in the Gentiles’ material blessing. What am I doing to build up other believers? Where am I sharing my blessings with others? Where am I allowing others to share their blessings with me? As a leader, I am focused more on building others up. I need to be OK receiving blessings from others.

Prayer

Father, thank you that we can bless each other and praise you together. Help me to obey your word and accept encouragement as well as giving it.
