Faith is one of the most misunderstood words in the world today. Five believers are greeted by name in verse 14 and mention is made of the "brethren that are with them." He’s about to appeal to a church run by Jewish leaders asking them to fund his mission work to reach Gentiles in Spain, But before he does, he mentions his upcoming trip where he will deliver generous Gentile support to a needy Jewish church, So as the Jews are being blessed by Gentile believers, so it should be that these Jewish believers might bless future Gentiles in Spain, Notice Paul then says in vs.28-29 that as he comes back this way and stops in Rome, he will expect to to be sent on to Spain by the Roman church, To be sent on means to be supported in that journey, Notice he adds that when he comes he will come in the fullness of the blessing of Christ, Paul is referring to the blessing Christ would bestow upon the church in Rome on the occasion of Paul’s visit and by way of his teaching and leadership, Paul was not an immodest man, as his letters demonstrate, So when Paul says this, he isn’t complimenting himself, He’s simply acknowledging the work the Lord was prepared to do through him in keeping with his role as an apostle, So the deal he’s offering the church in Rome is simple, He intends to come to that church so that he might bless them in their mission, And so that they might bless him in his mission, Paul isn’t interested in becoming wealthy and he’s not interested in visiting Rome merely for the attention it will give him, For Paul, everything is about the mission of the Church, And therefore Paul turns to making a specific request for support…for prayer support, The financial support Paul needed could only come once he arrived in the city of Rome, But the prayer support could start immediately and would be even more powerful, Paul didn’t urge the church to support him financially, but he urges them to pray, He refers to their prayers on behalf of his ministry work as striving together with Paul, It’s a great way to understand your opportunity to pray for others in their ministry, First, it’s a joining with another person, God will accomplish more through two members of the body united in this way than by individuals working apart, Even though one is using hands and feet while the other is using prayer, they are still joined spiritually, And in eternity we will understand how the Lord used these together to accomplish more to His glory, Obviously, Paul’s long and dangerous journeys were a form of striving for Paul, But the Romans’ prayers for Paul were equally striving, In fact the Greek word for strive is actually a compound word made up of the Greek words “together” and “fighting”, So it conveys the idea of fighting together, If you have ever tried to pray for someone else’s ministry work on a continual basis, then you know full well that it is striving, You are fighting with the other person against a common enemy, The enemy will resist their work in the field in one way, And he will resist your work on your knees in other ways, But both of you will be striving if you’re working at all, So as you consider your opportunities to support ministry, remember there are two types of support we should offer the work of the church, One occurs in a moment, the other is continuous, One has delayed effect, the other has immediate effect, One enables the work, the other enables success, Interestingly, Paul did return to Rome directly after visiting Jerusalem, though he entered Rome in chains, Jews conspired to have Paul arrested by Roman authorities while in Jerusalem, As a Roman citizen, he appealed to be tried by Caesar (which was a Roman right), Which then led Rome to transport Paul for free to Rome, Paul spent two years in house arrest awaiting trial, And according to reliable early church records, Paul eventually left Rome with their support and indeed went to Spain for a time, Later, after several years, Paul returned to Rome, This time he was executed by Nero, according to church tradition, Countless men and women will be in the kingdom either directly or indirectly due to Paul and his writings, So in a sense, those in Rome who funded and prayed for Paul’s work were striving with Paul for all those gains as well, At this point, the letter is essentially complete…but for greetings in Chapter 16, We will read the chapter – and I will do my best not to butcher the names – and then we will consider a few historical facts along the way, Chapter 16 is a very personal list of thoughts and greetings, He mentions 36 names, 8 who are with Paul in Corinth and the rest are those he greets in Rome, He also mentioned two households and three house churches, Most of the names are Gentile, reflecting the growing population of Gentiles in that church, It is interesting that Paul could name so many people in Rome and yet had never visited the city, As I mentioned earlier, Paul lists so many names because not having visited, he wanted to affirm his connection to this church, Also, Paul has probably made some personal contacts with those who left Rome to come visit him, So in fellowship, he greets them to be polite and loving, As Wiersbe observed, Paul was a friend-maker as well as a soul winner, The first name Paul mentions, Phoebe, is the one who carried this letter to Rome from Corinth from where Paul wrote it, The word in Greek is diakonos, which means servant or minister or deacon, Illustrating that from the beginning woman have played an important and even prominent role in the church, The list from v.3–v.16 includes many Latin or Greek names (or possibly they are Jews with Greek names like Paul), Priscilla and Aquila met Paul in Corinth when they fled Rome after the Emperor Claudius ordered Jews to leave Rome, They were also tent makers and as Paul says, they risked their lives for him, Paul took them to Ephesus with him where they helped Apollos, Later they moved back to Rome and had a church in their home, We also read about them being back in Ephesus with Timothy at one point, The first convert from Asia refers to Ephesus, (Asia Minor) not modern day Asia, The reference in v.7 to apostles who were in Christ before Paul is striking, Notice these men are called apostles yet they are not among the twelve nor mentioned anywhere else in scripture, This is further evidence that there were numerous apostles not given high profile in scripture, Looking at verse 10, Paul greets not Aristobulus but the man’s household, Paul is probably referring to the slaves of that household who had become believers, yet Aristobulus himself had not, Rufus may have been the son of Simon of Cyrene who helped carry Christ’s cross, And apparently his mother was like a mother to Paul at some point, And in v.14, the brethren is probably a reference to another house church, Interestingly, Paul interrupts his greetings to issue a brief warning against the activity of false teachers in the church, In v.17 Paul asks the church to keep a watchful eye for these guys, They will know them because they cause dissensions, They create hinderances to obedience to the word, This is an example of fruit from trees, to use Jesus’ metaphor from Matthew 12, You may not immediately know if a teaching is correct, but if it’s a lie from the enemy, his fingerprints will be all over it, It’s effect will be negative on holiness, obedience and unity, People will not be edified by its introduction, they will be harmed, People will move away from sound doctrine as a result, which is why the enemy sows bad teaching in the church in the first place, Paul asks the church to take note of this pattern allowing it to inform their understanding of those who spread such teaching, Men who have this impact on the church are slaves of sin, not of Christ, So we’re not talking about mistaken believers teaching falsely, We’re talking about unbelievers intentionally manipulating the body for their own purposes, They use smooth speech, which means they are well-spoken, And they ingratiate themselves with flattery which is a subtle form of lying, In other words, their style covers for their lack of substance, They offer the church candy-coated poison for the soul, And in that way they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting, Paul and other New Testament writers offer a great deal more information about dealing with false teachers in other letters (especially Jude), So for now, Paul simply issues this warning in passing, I suspect he does this because at this time in history Paul was especially troubled by false teachers hounding him as he traveled, The mid-century saw a particularly strong rise in false teaching around Judaism and the Law as well as other heresies, So Paul may have become concerned that his interest in going to Rome might lead false teachers to get there before him, Also in v.19 Paul seems to think that the report of Rome’s good teaching and steady adherence to true doctrine could provoke the enemy to respond, But in v.20 Paul says the enemy is destined to be crushed under Christ’s feet, So though today Satan sows confusion in the church with false teaching, it will not change the end result for him, Nevertheless, Paul calls upon the Roman church to be wise in what is good and innocent of evil, This is a powerful statement about avoiding the enemy’s schemes, First be wise in what is good, what is true, what is in the Bible, Have a firm understanding of proper things so you will be in a position to identify the lies of the enemy, In this, the enemy will find it much harder to deceive you, Secondly, we must remain innocent of evil, If we voluntarily engage in sin, we open ourselves to condemnation and self-destruction, And the enemy can exploit our misdeeds to compromise our witness or distract us from our service, But if we remain informed of the truth and committed to walking in obedience and in love, the enemy has a much tougher job, At that point he can only tempt us to fall, And if we don’t take the temptation, we are outside his reach, Easier said than done, but that’s the formula, Finally, Paul’s great letter ends with a final salutation, The letter ends with a list of names of those working with Paul in Corinth, Timothy was working in Ephesus but spent time with Paul in Corinth, Lucius is probably Luke, who wrote the Gospel and Acts, Jason was likely Paul’s host in Thessalonica, Sosipater traveled with Paul on his third journey, Tertius penned the words of this epistle as Paul spoke them (how would you like to have that accomplishment on your resume?). The household of Narcissus (16:11) also probably referred to the slaves belonging to a wealthy, wicked freedman who was also friends with the Emperor Claudius. Documenting the Indictment. Romans 16:16, KJV: "Salute one another with an holy kiss.The churches of Christ salute you." Romans 16 We will begin this lesson in Romans 7:7, "What shall we say then?

Dec 17, 2006. Obviously, that question is unfair because we only accomplish what the Lord determines to do through us, Still, there is something to consider here, because undoubtedly we could have done more for the kingdom had we set our mind to it, Paul’s remarkable legacy doesn’t establish our goal in ministry, but it does challenge us to increase our effort and focus, We know all Paul accomplished for the Lord, but we don’t know all he sacrificed, We know of some sacrifices, including coming near death and suffering great deprivation at times, In the end, church tradition holds that Paul was martyred for his work, So let his example serve to challenge our willingness to sacrifice so that we might be useful to the Lord for accomplishing great things also, Now look at v.24 where we see Paul mentioning a desire to be in Spain, Paul saw Spain as the next great frontier for his apostolic ministry, And as it turned out, Rome was on his way, So the time had come to stop and visit the Roman church, But Spain was a long way from Rome, and if Paul was going to make it that far, he would need support, And that’s exactly why he’s written to Rome, Paul says he hopes to see them in passing through to Spain, and in seeing them be helped in reaching the Gentiles in Spain, I can think of no better way to raise money for ministry, Even though Paul was sitting in Corinth as he wrote, and was only a few days journey away from Rome, he was taking a detour, Paul continues to explain his future missionary plans saying he must first return to Jerusalem, He’s literally traveling in the opposite direction from Rome, He’s delivering a contribution from Gentile churches in this region to meet the needs of the Jewish church in Jerusalem, The church in Jerusalem was especially poor largely because faith in Jesus made a Jew a pariah in the city, Without the support of the Jewish community, it was nearly impossible to survive in the city, So support from other churches in the region was a huge issue, and Paul worked hard to raise support for the Jewish church wherever he went, Having persuaded a number of churches to give generously to the needs of Jerusalem, Paul is now ready to return to the city, And he mentioned this trip to those in Rome because he wants to make a larger point to them, Notice in v.27 Paul says these Gentile churches were only too happy to give to the Jewish church out of gratitude for what they had received, Paul’s alluding to the importance of Israel and the Jewish people in God’s plan to bring salvation to all mankind, As he taught earlier in this letter, Israel’s covenant relationship with the Lord is the root that we’ve been grafted into by faith, So the Gentile church is indebted to the Jewish people for spiritual things, So how can we object to offering them material things, which are of far less value. You must hear the gospel and then understand and recognize that you are lost without Jesus Christ no matter who you are and no matter what your background is. 1. Thus Joab, pretending great friendship to Amasa, took him by the beard to kiss him, when he slew him, 2 Samuel 20:9.Our Lord says to Simon, Luke 7:45, Thou gavest me no kiss; meaning, that he had not expressed such affection to him as the woman had done who kissed his feet.
