Scholars think Romans is Paul’s greatest work. I think Hebrews is his greatest work and Romans his second. Next year we can plan on digging into Hebrews as deeply as we do with Romans this year, maybe more-so. Hebrews relates the feasts, festivals and fasts of the Old Testament to the New Testament. What had once been exterior, outward acts, after Jesus brought new life, these same feasts, festivals and fasts became interior, spiritual events. Hebrews is a book on how to live as a spirit in this physical world.
Romans relates the laws and regulations of the Old Testament to the New Testament. What had once been over 600 laws, after Jesus brought new life, these laws became a transformation of the human being into a love being – truly loving one another from the heart. Romans is a book on how to be made out of love like God is, and thereby love everyone.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
