The word of God is the power and means God uses to call his people. If this scripture is written by men and inspired by the Spirit how do we know that the books of the Bible we have are true?

It may seem like that Romans 12 is teaching us that Christian life is taking hit after smack in the face without any reprieve. The thing to remember is that the Apostle Paul wants us to look at the big picture. We need to be assured that servanthood is not just meaningless suffering, but that our king does notice injustice. How can seeing the big p…
 
We need to remember that Christ's rebuke is not just an Israelite problem, but a human problem. Humans are broken, humans need grace, humans need the regenerative power of the Spirit.
