In earnest concern, Paul instructs the Church at Rome with passion, to mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which they had learned and to avoid them. When one understands the heart of God concerning His flock and the prayers of Christ that His Church may be one; insight is gleaned and understanding is gained as it relates to the importance of unity. One begins to see the utter wickedness and evil of a divisive person! The Greek word for division is where we get our English word for dichotomy, which means to cut into two parts. The Word of God is clear; we are to mark such people, and to have nothing to do with them, for such serve not the Lord Jesus Christ but their own bellies and their own conceited agendas!!
It is with thankfulness to God, that we conclude this teaching series on the Book of Romans. May the Lord be glorified in all that has been shared and may we strive to walk in the reality of it!!
