Honoring God’s Purposes
While our small hearts magnify differences to bring division, our small hearts are challenged to grow to embrace others and their role in God’s kingdom. In Rom 15:8–21, we are not only challenged to grow to embrace our brother but to expand even more to embrace God’s purposes and promises for all the nations. This global perspective and purpose motivates us to move beyond the petty differences that frustrate us. In these verses, we see that God’s promises for the nations fill us with hope and grace to believe and step forward to fulfill these promises for the nations.
