Romans–Passionate Christian Theology

Reading, studying and meditating through the letters of Paul to the beloved believers in Rome has been uplifting, convicting and encouraging all at the same time. We look back over what has transpired in our own life’s journey during this reading and praise God for His Word in bringing to today. His Word restores the joy of our salvation as the Psalmist asks and brings the wisdom, insight and understanding of God that we cry for into sharper focus. We are so grateful.

These final words of Romans 16 (The Message) brings peace to our hearts this morning. May peace be with you, to as we read together with grateful hearts, in the middle of whatever you are dealing with, in your lives. When all is said and done, what will be our final praises?

“All of our praise rises to the One who is strong enough to make you strong, exactly as preached in Jesus Christ, precisely as revealed in the mystery kept secret for so long but now an open book through the prophetic Scriptures. All the nations of the world can now know the truth and be brought into obedient belief, carrying out the orders of God, who got all this started, down to the very last letter.”

“All our praise is focused through Jesus on this incomparably wise God! Yes!”

Yes, HE is God and we are not. May we bow down and give Him all the praise He is due for lifting us up and setting our feet on solid ground. He is our hope and our stay. He is our deliverer. He is our Savior so He must be our Lord. I believe and I will always sing…He’s still the King of kings. And He came as a child and moved into our neighborhoods.

The following is a song that is on my heart this season and has been throughout the reading of Romans…Blessings as you read the lyrics that were written many years back by Scott Wesley Brown that are still relevant today:

This Little Child

Who would of tho’t that long ago
So very far away
A little child would be born
And in a manger laid
And who would have tho’t this little child
Was born the King of kings
The Son of just a carpenter
For whom the angels sing
And who would have tho’t that as He grew
And with other children played
This child with whom they laughed and sang
Would die for them some day
And who would have tho’t this little child
Could make a blind man see
Feed the hungry make rich the poor
And set the sinner free
Oh who would have tho’t this little child
Was who the prophets said
Would take away the sins of man
And rise up from the dead

Chorus 1
O I believe and I will always sing
This little child is the King
O I believe and I will always sing
This little child
He is the King of kings

Verse 2
Many years have come and gone
Yet this world remains the same
Empires have been built and fallen
Only time has made a change
Nation against nation
Brother against brother
Men so filled with hatred
Killing one another
And over half the world is starving
While our banner of decency is torn
Debating over disarmament
Killing children before they’re born
And fools who march to win the right
To justify their sin
Oh ev’ry nation that has fallen
Has fallen from within
Yet in the midst of this darkness
There is a hope a light that burns
This little child the King of kings
Some day will return

Chorus 2
And I believe and I will always sing
This little child is the King
And I believe and I will always sing
This little child
He is the King of kings

Verse 3
Who would have tho’t this little child
Is who the prophets said
Will return to judge this world
The living and the dead
Oh can’t you see that long ago
So very far away
This little child our only hope
Was born a King that day
And can’t you see that here and now
As unto Him we pray
This Lord of lords who is our hope
Is still King today
He’s still the King today


Dear Heavenly Father, Right in the middle of the storm You are there with Your sweet gift of peace. Thank you, Lord for being our strength and our song in the night. Thank you for making a way by clearing a path to come home to You.
In Jesus Name, Amen I believe and I will always sing.
