I Am Ready to Preach the Gospel - Romans #2

Read Romans 1:1-15

This is the second message on this series of the letter to the ROMANS. Paul expresses his passion and preparedness to preach the gospel, for the purpose of calling the Roman Christians, and us, to imitate him as he imitated Christ. We know that such kingdom service will bring suffering and persecution, but the love of Christ ought to compel us even more to serve the gospel.

The Preparation of the Gospel of Peace

Read Ephesians 6:13,15 with Colossians 1:19-29

The preparation of the gospel of peace is set in the imagery of footwear. Just as wearing proper footwear for special occasions, journeys, or weather is necessary, so too our will and determination for each day must be shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. This message defines the gospel of peace and its necessity for each day.
