Bible study on Romans – Chapter 15
Dear brothers and sisters,
In this bible study on the 15th chapter on the book of Romans we will go through this chapter as following:
- Who are strong
- Paul the minister to the gentiles
- Paul’s plan to visit Rome
Who are strong
When you are a strong person, even in a certain kind of area, God tells you never to feel good about yourself and feel better than someone else. God really doesn’t like this kind of behavior/mindset. No, God tells you that when you are strong, than it is your obligation to use that strength to built up someone that is weak. Imagine if God (and He is stron in all areas) would find favor in looking down on you and treat you bad. That would be horrible. But that shows how amazing God is, because He loves you so much, that He will do everything to built you up!
God uses the endurance in our life, to built us up and make us better! So, please do the same for others. Know how much Jesus suffered for you and out of His love, He did everything to make your life better even at the cost of His own life!
Honor God by doing good unto others.
Paul the minister to the gentiles
Paul tells us in this chapter that he is convinced that we are full of goodness, filled with knowledge and competent to instruct one another. He doesn’t just tells us this to boost our confidence. No, he knows that these are qualities that we have received from God and we need to act on this qualitites to help each other.
He also informs us that it was through God that he shared the gospel also to the gentiles, to make us worthy to God and others. So, please use all qualities that God gave you and use them for the good of others and not for your selfish need.
Paul’s plan to visit Rome
Paul continues in this chapter to let us know that all he does is, because of what God put on his heart. We also need to follow all that God has put on our hearts and do our best to do the work for God that He has ordained us for. Pray to God and ask Him to show you in which way you are ordained to carry out the work for God.
Also, he tells us that we need to pray for each other to be blessed and save in all we do for God. It is important for us to keep on praying for each other, because the devil will not sit still to disturb your work for God. We should never let the devil have any space to distort any plan of God!
