Grow in your worship of God, understand the Gospel in all its fullness

Posted: February 17, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity

After Paul had spent eleven chapters in Romans expounding the Gospel in all its fullness and grandeur, he closed with a doxology, a note of praise to God: “For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen”   (Romans 11:36).

The “all things” in Paul’s mind would include the gift of faith. Do you want to grow in your own worship of God? That growth will be directly related to your understanding of the gospel in all its fullness, including the fact that the faith by which you believed was a gift from God.

Jerry Bridges, ” The Gospel for Real Life”, pg 124

    yup…..for me instead of a doxology, I have to get up and dance! (guess it is my version of a doxology!)
