The Debts You Owe

Category: New Testament Letters

Passage: Romans 13:1–13:14

Summary: This message from Romans, chapter thirteen, examines three debts that each of us owes. The first debt is what we owe to government; that is our public debt. Then there is the debt we owe to others – our private debt. Finally, there is the debt we owe to God because of our gracious salvation; this is our eternal debt. This debt calls forth a response of righteous living in light of the consummation of history and our salvation.

Shoe Leather

Passage: Romans 12:3–12:21

Summary: We are often better at what we believe than how we live, aren’t we? In Romans, chapter twelve, Paul shifts focus from doctrine to application, from theological to practical. In the first two verses, he states two foundation imperatives if we are to live rightly, if our lives are to accurately reflect and represent what we believe. They are consecration – yielding our bodies to God as a living sacrifice, and character – being transformed by the renewing of our minds. Now in the remainder of the chapter, Paul gets down to shoe leather, down to where we live, how we walk. He talks about a proper evaluation of ourselves, and then lists specific actions that should characterize how we relate to others if we are, indeed, experiencing God’s transforming work in our lives. Evaluate your relationship with others by means of this checklist.

Passage: Romans 11:1–11:36

Summary: In Romans, chapter eleven, Paul concludes his teaching on God’s relationship to the Jew. Because of Israel’s unbelief, has God rejected them as his chosen people? Paul’s answer is an emphatic “No!” But Israel’s rejection was good news for the Gentile. The conclusion, by way of application, we draw from Paul’s teaching in Romans 11 is that God is sovereign; He is merciful; He is faithful.
