Sunday Sermon Series – 12/11/2022

ROMANS 15

Chapter CONTEXT from MHCC: The apostle, in this chapter, continues the discourse of the former, concerning mutual forbearance in indifferent things; and so draws towards a conclusion of the epistle. Where such differences of apprehension, and consequently distances of affection, are among Christians, there is need of precept upon precept, line upon line, to allay the heat, and to beget a better temper. The apostle, being desirous to drive the nail home, as a nail in a sure place, follows his blow, unwilling to leave the subject till he has some hopes of prevailing, to which end he orders the cause before them and fills his mouth with the most pressing arguments. We may observe, in this chapter, I. His precepts to them. II. His prayers for them. III. His apology for writing to them. IV. His account of himself and his own affairs. V. His declaration of his purpose to come and see them. VI. His desire of a share in their prayers.

In a devotional last week, we looked at the Divinity of the Holy Spirit. We noted then that His main job is not directed at you but to Glorify Christ. There can be no doubt as we pointed out that the Holy Spirit is also a helper and comforter (not a personal assistant) John 14:16. His role here is to, will ALWAYS allow you and point you to glorify Christ. Note v.13 and v.19 in our text for today. It is the power of the Spirit of God that gives us the strength to be faithful and Glorify Christ.

That is why today in a world full of chaos, debauchery, and rampant evil we need the Holy Spirit more than ever.
