I have just under two weeks left of classes. In our Bible interpretation class, we will be using Romans as our sample text. I have formatted it more similarly as it was written, taken out titles and printed it in paragraph units as a letter to read. We will read it together seeing it as a whole, and where it fits in the greater whole of the Bible and God’s great plan for mankind.
Latin churches especially seem to be given towards building a foundation of self effort, strict rules (the elementary principles of the world which Paul teaches are useless in his letter to the Galatians and Colossians). My desire and prayer is that God would lay the true foundations of life in their hearts through these next two weeks. It is the truth which sets us free, yet we need eyes to see the truth and only the Spirit of Truth can reveal and show these things in the heart.
Pray that God lays foundations in hearts, foundations that will last for the rest of their lives and make them immovable as they see un-mistakenly who they are “in Christ”, seated, pure, glorious and eternal in the heavens forever.
“For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
1 Cor 3:11
