Nehemiah 10-13; Romans 15

Romans 15:7-13 Welcome one another, then, as Christ welcomed you, for the glory of God. For I say that Christ became a minister of the circumcised to show God’s truthfulness, to confirm the promises to the patriarchs, but so that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written:

“Therefore, I will praise you among the Gentiles and sing praises to your name.”

And again it says: “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people.”

And again: “Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and let all the peoples praise him.”

And again Isaiah says: “The root of Jesse shall come, raised up to rule the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles hope.

 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the holy Spirit.

We speak much today about the virtue of inclusiveness.  This is the inclusiveness of Christ, his intense desire that all be saved.
