For I tell you that Christ became a servant to the circumcised to show God's truthfulness, in order to confirm the promises given to the patriarchs, and in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. - Romans 15:8-9 Reading the Bible, especially the Old Testament, can be odd. The majority of the story is about the Jews and their struggle to follow God. As Gentiles sometimes we don't know how we connect to the story. Is God even interested in us? Or are we just some kind of afterthought? In Romans 15, we have been exploring how we should relate to one another when we have differing points of view on non-essential issues, but some of these issue might be tied to culture. Paul addresses the differences and connection between Jews and Gentiles. He gives us a clear way to understand how we, non-Jews, fit into God's purposes and plans. Take a few minutes to read through Romans 15 and see where we fit into God's plan. See if you can discover what knowing and trusting in this plan produces. Hint: Check out verse 13!
