Paul’s Commendations: It’s All About Character

Text: Romans 16 – In this final chapter of Roman’s, the Apostle Paul takes the time to commend those in the church who have served faithfully and helped him in his ministry. His focus is on their character, not their role or position. So often, even in ministry, we can get caught up in a desire for position rather than just willingly serve with God honouring character. Paul even warns that often, these desires can lead to division in the church. As he concludes this series on Romans, Pastor Russ reminds us to keep our focus on the One we are serving.
