Tomorrow morning we will continue our exposition of Romans 12-14 as we complete chapter 13.
In this week’s text Paul seeks to motivate us to be alert in our pursuit of holiness in light of the nearness of the return of Christ.
I am always delighted to be reminded of the practical use of eschatology (biblical prophecy).
We are of the day of the age to come, not of the night of this fading worldly age; therefore we should live in light of who we are.

This passage also contains a beautiful balance between God’s law (‘don’t be drunk and sexually immoral’) and the gospel (‘Instead, put on Christ!”).
