Our Week in the Word segment this week comes from Philip Brown, our College and Singles Pastor.

Called to Share to Barbarians?

We have just finished Romans on Sundays in BFG and I started doing a personal review of it again for myself. I have always been amazed at the things I find that I have missed in Romans.

One of my favorite passages is Romans 1:19-20 where Paul talks about the fact that the world denies what is in plain sight of them. The point is that creation screams that there is a God yet the world stops at the creation instead of worshipping what made it.  But I must admit I think I have missed what should be in plain sight for me and you.  

The fact is that in vs.14 Paul says he is called to both Greek and barbarian. He is talking about the gentiles or those who are of the World. The rest of the chapter is really describing a lot of what the world looks like that denies that there is a creator. This description from vs. 24-32 really looks a lot like our barbaric world today.    

The key though is not to just acknowledge that the list is sinful and “barbaric” but also to remember that this is the people to whom we are called to minister to as well.  

God did not call us just to minister to “pretty good” people. Romans later reminds us of how we all are far from God without his Grace and that we are all sinners and enemies of God.    

So as we come out of covid and encounter those who deny the creator every day, let’s be reminded that we once were just like them and they need their eyes to be open to the truth.  Let us be praying for the lost around us and sharing the good news with them.
