Transcript of Romans 15:8-13

Romans 15:8-13
8 For I tell you that Christ became a servant to the circumcised to show God’s truthfulness, in order to confirm the promises given to the patriarchs,
9 and in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written, “Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles, and sing to your name.” 
10 And again it is said, “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people.” 
11 And again, “Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and let all the peoples extol him.” 
12 And again Isaiah says, “The root of Jesse will come, even he who arises to rule the Gentiles; in him will the Gentiles hope.” 
13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

A Global Answer
Questing for Joy, Peace, and Hope
Twisted Thinking
Three Truths
1. If you need that liberty to have joy, peace, and hope you have confused making your delight in the gift the same as delight in the Giver.
2. If you think not using your liberty or others not using their liberty would bring them joy, peace, and hope then you have used man’s wisdom to try to walk with Christ.
3. If you think that the pathway to joy, peace, and hope is that church sub-divide and you base relationships around liberty issues you are missing the power and truth of the Gospel.

Joy, Peace, and Hope are the anthems of a united church.

Deuteronomy 32:41-43
“41 if I sharpen my flashing sword and my hand takes hold on judgment, I will take vengeance on my adversaries and will repay those who hate me. 42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh— with the blood of the slain and the captives, from the long-haired heads of the enemy.’ 43 “Rejoice with him, O heavens; bow down to him, all gods, for he avenges the blood of his children and takes vengeance on his adversaries. He repays those who hate him and cleanses his people’s land.”
Psalm 117:1-2
