Hope in a Frustrated World

Romans 8:15-25

United as God’s Children by the Spirit of God vv 15-17
Paul is announcing the Gospel that has created remarkable communities like the church in Rome – Jews and pagans of all nations, slave and free – the deep brokenness of human beings healed by God. This is God’s great purpose and only God could accomplish it.
In Jesus Messiah, uniquely Son of God, God came bodily among us in self-giving love/grace to bring the story of Israel to a new level of fulfillment, to break grip of sin and death that we in our weakness could not break, to conquer death and create new resurrection life.
