Cary Cox, from Romans 15:7-12. God is building his unified, multi-ethnic church through the humble sacrifice of Jesus Christ, for the purpose of the praise and glory of God! This is why we work through problems, disagreements, and issues in our messy, imperfect, and beautiful local churches.
Cary Cox, from Romans 9:21-23. Paul explains the purpose of God, which is his pursuit of his own glory in all things. God will display his glory, both in his punishment of the wicked, and in his salvation of his chosen people in Christ. We look at the reason evil exists, and how all things will ultimately work for God’s glory and the good of his people.
