Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen. - Romans 11:33–36 (ESV) Did you grow up singing the Doxology in church? If you didn't (and want to figure out what I'm talking about) or if you want to hear a beautiful version check out this video. Doxology is simply a formula for praising God and often times doxologies are appended on the end of songs or passages. They are a reflection of truth that has been revealed about God. As we close out Romans 11, Paul busts out in song. Some people think this is an early Christian hymn. He is looking back on Romans 1-11 and is so saturated and overwhelmed with God's work in salvation, he can't help but sing. This week we take a look at his doxology. Will you take some time to read through Romans 9-11 again. Do it slowly and think about what God has done and will do. Maybe even flip through Roman 1-11, then come ready to worship together at 10:30 this Sunday.
