Scripture Sunday: Romans 15:13

Romans 15:8–33—Callings. Both the calling or ministry of Christ and of Paul is addressed. •Ministry of Christ: the circumcision (Christ came first to the Jews); the confirmation (it was a confirmation of the promises for the Jews); the converts (among the Gentiles which glorified the mercy of God); the corroboration (Old Testament Scriptures are quoted to corroborate the ministry of Christ). •Ministry of Paul: the people (he was sent to the Gentiles); the power (he did miracles); the purpose (to go where Christ was not named—not to build on another’s foundation); the paths (Paul told of his intentions of coming to Rome after he had delivered the gifts for the needy at Jerusalem); the praying (he requested others to pray for his ministry). –Butler’s Daily Bible Reading
