"The Body of Christ"

Paul's letter to Rome has dealt with some amazing truths. He has talked about how we have been justified before God because of our faith in Jesus. He told us God chose us long ago and has been (and still is) working in all things for the good of those who are called according to what he is doing. As Paul closes out his letter, he mentions more people by name than anywhere else in his writings. He loves these people. After all the theology and deep teaching, it all comes down to loving God and loving others. Each person Paul lists has a role in the body of Christ, and no two of the people or roles are exactly alike. It's still the same with us today. So, go out there and get involved, serve. Love God and love others!
