To all those in Rome who are loved by God and called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. -- Romans 1:7 (ESV) This Sunday we begin the book of Romans. To be honest, I'm both scared and excited. I'm scared because this book stands out among the New Testament books not only because of it's size, but also because of its depth and scope. To tackle something of it's magnitude is scary. I want to get it right. I'm also excited. To hear Paul describe and expound God and His gospel is thrilling. What could be better then to see the grandeur of salvation presented in all it's beauty. I hope you are ready to begin! Take a few minutes before Sunday and slowly read through the first chapter. In these few verses you get a sense of what Paul will be describing and how important and impactful it will be.
Into Eternity

And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” Revelation 21:5 (ESV) Only 360 shopping days left until Christmas. Wait!?! What!?! We just made it through another holiday season. We can't start talking about the next one. We are still in our holiday haze. We have to have a little time to recover, right? Often when we get by Christmas we feel like it was fun, but it's time to move on. Pull down the tree. Stash the lights. Turn off the Christmas music. If we truly understand the story of Advent, there are some things we can't put away. The child we celebrate in Advent didn't just arrive. He lived, died, rose again, and ascended to heaven and now we await another Advent, but this one will be different. How? This week we finish the Advent story, not by looking back but by looking ahead. Take a few minutes to read through Revelation 21-22 to get a small preview of what is to come.
