Romans 11

Israel and God’s faithfulness.

So I ask you, has God rejected his people? Absolutely not! I’m an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin. 2God hasn’t rejected his people, whom he knew in advance. Or don’t you know what the scripture says in the case of Elijah, when he pleads with God against Israel? 3Lord, “they have killed your prophets, and they have torn down your altars. I’m the only one left, and they are trying to take my life.” 4But what is God’s reply to him? “I have kept for myself seven thousand people who haven’t bowed their knees to Baal.” 5So also in the present time there is a remaining group by the choice of God’s grace. 6But if it is by grace, it isn’t by what’s done anymore. If it were, God’s grace wouldn’t be grace.

7So what? Israel didn’t find what it was looking for. Those who were chosen found it, but the others were resistant. 8As it is written, “God gave them a dull spirit, so that their eyes would not see and their ears not hear, right up until the present day.” 9And David says,

“Their table should become a pitfall and a trap, ”

“a stumbling block and payback to them for what they have done. ”

10“Their eyes should be darkened so they can’t see, ”

“and their backs always bent.”

11So I’m asking you: They haven’t stumbled so that they’ve fallen permanently, have they? Absolutely not! But salvation has come to the Gentiles by their failure, in order to make Israel jealous. 12But if their failure brings riches to the world, and their defeat brings riches to the Gentiles, how much more will come from the completion of their number! 13I’m speaking to you Gentiles. Considering that I’m an apostle to the Gentiles, I publicize my own ministry 14in the hope that somehow I might make my own people jealous and save some of them. 15If their rejection has brought about a close relationship between God and the world, how can their acceptance mean anything less than life from the dead?

16But if part of a batch of dough is offered to God as holy, the whole batch of dough is holy too. If a root is holy, the branches will be holy too. 17If some of the branches were broken off, and you were a wild olive branch, and you were grafted in among the other branches and shared the root that produces the rich oil of the olive tree, 18then don’t brag like you’re better than the other branches. If you do brag, be careful: it’s not you that sustains the root, but it’s the root that sustains you. 19You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.” 20Fine. They were broken off because they weren’t faithful, but you stand only by your faithfulness. So don’t think in a proud way; instead be afraid. 21If God didn’t spare the natural branches, he won’t spare you either. 22So look at God’s kindness and harshness. It’s harshness toward those who fell, but it’s God’s kindness for you, provided you continue in his kindness; otherwise, you could be cut off too. 23And even those who were cut off will be grafted back in if they don’t continue to be unfaithful, because God is able to graft them in again. 24If you were naturally part of a wild olive tree and you were cut off from it, and then, contrary to nature, you were grafted into the cultivated olive tree, won’t these natural branches stand an even better chance of being grafted back onto their own olive tree?

All Israel will be saved

25I don’t want you to be unaware of this secret, brothers and sisters. That way you won’t think too highly of yourselves. A part of Israel has become resistant until the full number of the Gentiles comes in. 26In this way, all Israel will be saved, as it is written:

“The deliverer will come from Zion. ”

“He will remove ungodly behavior from Jacob. ”

27“This is my covenant with them, ”

“when I take away their sins”.

28According to the gospel, they are enemies for your sake, but according to God’s choice, they are loved for the sake of their ancestors. 29God’s gifts and calling can’t be taken back. 30Once you were disobedient to God, but now you have mercy because they were disobedient. 31In the same way, they have also been disobedient because of the mercy that you received, so now they can receive mercy too. 32God has locked up all people in disobedience, in order to have mercy on all of them.

33God’s riches, wisdom, and knowledge are so deep! They are as mysterious as his judgments, and they are as hard to track as his paths!

34“Who has known the Lord’s mind? ”

“Or who has been his mentor?”

35“Or who has given him a gift ”

“and has been paid back by him?”

36All things are from him and through him and for him.

May the glory be to him forever. Amen.

ROMANS 12

Living sacrifice and transformed lives

1So, brothers and sisters, because of God’s mercies, I encourage you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice that is holy and pleasing to God. This is your appropriate priestly service. 2Don’t be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you can figure out what God’s will is—what is good and pleasing and mature.

Transformed relationships

3Because of the grace that God gave me, I can say to each one of you: don’t think of yourself more highly than you ought to think. Instead, be reasonable since God has measured out a portion of faith to each one of you. 4We have many parts in one body, but the parts don’t all have the same function. 5In the same way, though there are many of us, we are one body in Christ, and individually we belong to each other. 6We have different gifts that are consistent with God’s grace that has been given to us. If your gift is prophecy, you should prophesy in proportion to your faith. 7If your gift is service, devote yourself to serving. If your gift is teaching, devote yourself to teaching. 8If your gift is encouragement, devote yourself to encouraging. The one giving should do it with no strings attached. The leader should lead with passion. The one showing mercy should be cheerful.

9Love should be shown without pretending. Hate evil, and hold on to what is good. 10Love each other like the members of your family. Be the best at showing honor to each other. 11Don’t hesitate to be enthusiastic—be on fire in the Spirit as you serve the Lord! 12Be happy in your hope, stand your ground when you’re in trouble, and devote yourselves to prayer. 13Contribute to the needs of God’s people, and welcome strangers into your home. 14Bless people who harass you—bless and don’t curse them. 15Be happy with those who are happy, and cry with those who are crying. 16Consider everyone as equal, and don’t think that you’re better than anyone else. Instead, associate with people who have no status. Don’t think that you’re so smart. 17Don’t pay back anyone for their evil actions with evil actions, but show respect for what everyone else believes is good.

18If possible, to the best of your ability, live at peace with all people. 19Don’t try to get revenge for yourselves, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath. It is written, “Revenge belongs to me; I will pay it back, says the Lord”. 20Instead, “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink. By doing this, you will pile burning coals of fire upon his head”. 21Don’t be defeated by evil, but defeat evil with good.

ROMANS 13

1Every person should place themselves under the authority of the government. There isn’t any authority unless it comes from God, and the authorities that are there have been put in place by God. 2So anyone who opposes the authority is standing against what God has established. People who take this kind of stand will get punished. 3The authorities don’t frighten people who are doing the right thing. Rather, they frighten people who are doing wrong. Would you rather not be afraid of authority? Do what’s right, and you will receive its approval. 4It is God’s servant given for your benefit. But if you do what’s wrong, be afraid because it doesn’t have weapons to enforce the law for nothing. It is God’s servant put in place to carry out his punishment on those who do what is wrong. 5That is why it is necessary to place yourself under the government’s authority, not only to avoid God’s punishment but also for the sake of your conscience. 6You should also pay taxes for the same reason, because the authorities are God’s assistants, concerned with this very thing. 7So pay everyone what you owe them. Pay the taxes you owe, pay the duties you are charged, give respect to those you should respect, and honor those you should honor.

8Don’t be in debt to anyone, except for the obligation to love each other. Whoever loves another person has fulfilled the Law. 9The commandments, “Don’t commit adultery, don’t murder, don’t steal, don’t desire what others have,” and any other commandments, are all summed up in one word: “You must love your neighbor as yourself.” 10Love doesn’t do anything wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is what fulfills the Law.

The day is near

11As you do all this, you know what time it is. The hour has already come for you to wake up from your sleep. Now our salvation is nearer than when we first had faith. 12The night is almost over, and the day is near. So let’s get rid of the actions that belong to the darkness and put on the weapons of light. 13Let’s behave appropriately as people who live in the day, not in partying and getting drunk, not in sleeping around and obscene behavior, not in fighting and obsession. 14Instead, dress yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ, and don’t plan to indulge your selfish desires.

ROMANS 14

Welcoming each other like Christ

1Welcome the person who is weak in faith—but not in order to argue about differences of opinion. 2One person believes in eating everything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. 3Those who eat must not look down on the ones who don’t, and the ones who don’t eat must not judge the ones who do, because God has accepted them. 4Who are you to judge someone else’s servants? They stand or fall before their own Lord (and they will stand, because the Lord has the power to make them stand). 5One person considers some days to be more sacred than others, while another person considers all days to be the same. Each person must have their own convictions. 6Someone who thinks that a day is sacred, thinks that way for the Lord. Those who eat, eat for the Lord, because they thank God. And those who don’t eat, don’t eat for the Lord, and they thank the Lord too. 7We don’t live for ourselves and we don’t die for ourselves. 8If we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we belong to God. 9This is why Christ died and lived: so that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living. 10But why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you look down on your brother or sister? We all will stand in front of the judgment seat of God. 11Because it is written,

“As I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow to me, ”

“and every tongue will give praise to God.”

12So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.

13So stop judging each other. Instead, this is what you should decide: never put a stumbling block or obstacle in the way of your brother or sister. 14I know and I’m convinced in the Lord Jesus that nothing is wrong to eat in itself. But if someone thinks something is wrong to eat, it becomes wrong for that person. 15If your brother or sister is upset by your food, you are no longer walking in love. Don’t let your food destroy someone for whom Christ died. 16And don’t let something you consider to be good be criticized as wrong. 17God’s kingdom isn’t about eating food and drinking but about righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18Whoever serves Christ this way pleases God and gets human approval.

19So let’s strive for the things that bring peace and the things that build each other up. 20Don’t destroy what God has done because of food. All food is acceptable, but it’s a bad thing if it trips someone else. 21It’s a good thing not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything that trips your brother or sister. 22Keep the belief that you have to yourself—it’s between you and God. People are blessed who don’t convict themselves by the things they approve. 23But those who have doubts are convicted if they go ahead and eat, because they aren’t acting on the basis of faith. Everything that isn’t based on faith is sin.

Amen.
