Listen as Pastor Sam takes us through the opening greeting to Paul’s letter to the Church in Rome.  On the surface it seems like a simple introduction, but in reality it is a beautiful summary of our faith and our calling.  We are called to share the Good News with others and show them the way to a place they already belong!

Romans 1:1-7  –  Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations, including you who are called to belong to Jesus Christ, to all those in Rome who are loved by God and called to be saints:  Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
