Reading Romans gives each of us so much hope. Hope that is needed in a world that is in a hurry to get to the next point. We get to one point and it's on to the next and so on and so on.

The earth is groaning and so is everyone in it. Have you thought about recently how many earthquakes this old world is having? How often they are happening? The earth is groaning. Do you listen to the television and hear all the groaning happening around us?

I want to encourage you to read the Message from Romans 5 -8 it says it so beautifully! So many verses that speak to me...Romans 5:18-19 - Here it is in a nutshell: Just as one person did it wrong and got us in all this trouble with sin and death, another person did it right and got us out of it. But more than getting us out of trouble, he got us into life! One man said no to God and put many people in the wrong; one man said yes to God and put many in the right!

Another, I love is Romans 6 - Never again will death have the last word. When Jesus died, he took sin down with him, but alive he brings God down to us! Hallelujah! I love Romans read it for yourself!

We live in freedom because of God sending Christ for each of us! WE have hope, we have light, we have eternity and freedom! Indeed, Romans reminds us to quit the groaning and start the shouting hallelujahs!

Sweet blessings,

The reading today from Romans was so good! It was just full of wonderful passages. Chapter 10 verse 13 says, "For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." In verse 21 God said, "All day long I opened my arms to them, but they were disobedient and rebellious." God said this of Israel, but it could any of us. Lord help us to turn from our disobedience and rebellion and to run into your opened arms.
