Love’s Mighty Conquests

Bible Text: Romans 16:17-20 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Romans: The Gospel of God's Grace In our passage today, Paul is baring his heart to the church and concludes with a call to greet one another with a holy kiss.  But, then, there's a sudden warning about troublemakers in the church. So much for the lovey-dovey stuff. The reality is that there are some people we can't be holy-kissing because they aren't holy people. Instead, Paul says, mark them and avoid them.   Paul had seen with his own eyes the damage that comes from those who would destroy the unity of the church.  Even after 2,000 years, there are still troublemakers in the church who pervert the Gospel of Christ and want to see the church destroyed or molded to their own likeness. As far as I know, none of you are like those people, but I'm speaking on this subject today as preventative maintenance to avoid being used by the devil to stir up trouble.

Love’s Many Contacts

Bible Text: Romans 16:1-16 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Romans: The Gospel of God's Grace In some ways Romans Chapter 16 appears to be one of the least interesting chapters of the New Testament. It has almost no explicit teaching and contains several names of mostly unknown individuals. Yet, it is the most extensive and intimate expression of Paul's love and affection for believers and coworkers to be found anywhere in the New Testament. In our passage today, Paul mentions 35 individuals by name, and his great heart provoked him to close his letter to the church at Rome with positive affirmations for the people of God.
