The Downward Spiral
As we continue making our way through Romans we’re learning about the conditions for the Roman Christians. The cultural tones in the time-period this book was written magnify the beauty of grace God has given. It’s like watching a movie where the underdog gains strength to overcome! When someone in Rome became a Christian their families typically pushed off from them because they were labeled as enemies of the human race! This made it very difficult for them. Rome was an awesome place for the elite to live but the lower class had a daily struggle. Therefore, Paul will take some time to encourage the believers by acknowledging their fruitfulness. What’s his point? The Gospel of Grace produces a faith that is planted, deep rooted, and abundantly fruitful!
