Praise Him! (Romans 15:7 – 13)

The Pathway of Hope is traveled by many who are following the example of Messiah Jesus the best they know how. As they travel they meet with other pilgrims whose ideas and practices are very similar yet not perfectly alike. Some are more rigid in their adherence to rules and regulations; others enjoy more fully the freedom that comes from forgiveness. Yet all are traveling the same path to the same destination with the same goal in mind. How can they travel together? The prophet Amos says two cannot travel together without agreement – so how do these differences become reconciled? Paul lays out the process for understanding one another and has begun laying out a program of unity – with the goal of highlighting God’s glory with one heart and voice. We continue discovering that program today as we hear Paul’s call for all travelers to praise the God Who placed them on the pathway.
