…in mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem and round about to Illyricum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.Romans 15:19 

This verse is the second half of what Paul stated yesterday. In context and in its entirety, it says, “For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ has not accomplished through me, in word and deed, to make the Gentiles obedient—in mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem and round about to Illyricum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.”

Paul’s boasting was in what Christ accomplished through him, not in his own deeds.… Read the rest

For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ has not accomplished through me, in word and deed, to make the Gentiles obedient—Romans 15:18

In the preceding verse, Paul stated “Therefore I have reason to glory in Christ Jesus in the things which pertain to God.” In substantiation of this, he begins this verse with “for.” There was sufficient reason for him to glory in the matters related to his ministry for God and to demonstrate his apostolic authority based on Christ’s effective working in him.… Read the rest

Therefore I have reason to glory in Christ Jesus in the things which pertain to God. Romans 15:17

In the previous verse, Paul clearly laid out his ministerial service as one of a priestly role. In this capacity and because of it, he now states “therefore.” In essence, “Because of that, therefore this.” And then he moves directly into his explanation – “I have reason to glory in Christ Jesus in the things which pertain to God.” In this thought, he uses the exact same Greek term, ta pros ton Theon, “in things which pertain to God” which is later used in Hebrews 5:1 –

“For every high priest taken from among men is appointed for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins.”

This then shows that what he was referring to in verse 16 is to be interpreted as pertaining to functions of a priestly nature.… Read the rest

…that I might be a minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:16

Paul provides an enormous amount of detail in this verse. He just stated that he has been bold in some points as a reminder to the Romans and then he said this was due to “the grace given to me by God.” He now explains that grace; it’s substance and how it is worked out.… Read the rest

Nevertheless, brethren, I have written more boldly to you on some points, as reminding you, because of the grace given to me by God, Romans 15:15

Paul had just said this to the Romans in the previous verse –

“Now I myself am confident concerning you, my brethren, that you also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.”

Having said this, he now states, “nevertheless.” He will make a firm addition to the kind words which he just spoke in the thought he is about to impart.… Read the rest
