In Romans 16, after a great study of doctrine, we see a list of peoples names that have laboured; partnered alongside Paul for the sake of the Gospel. They had found the rich and deep truths of the gospel. Believing in and fully convinced that the Righteousness from God Revealed to us in Justification by faith alone, sanctification, propitiation, is the Gospel of righteousness, that God has given to us. It behooves us to be the carriers of this wonderful liberating message of grace, the Gospel, the almost too good to be true message of God. When we have tasted the purity of the gospel, our cry as we carry forth this message, as we labour and partner together for Christ, should be as Martin Luther declared, when he was on trial for the sake of the Gospel
“I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.”
Let us labour and partner together for the sake of the Gospel.
