After 11 chapters of mainly focusing on God’s saving work for us in Christ, we made a turn at Romans 12 to God’s saving work in us as he transforms us now to do his will. And that is where Christians are in life. The great work that Christ did for us on the cross is past, and the great work that he is doing in us is present. And the present work is based on the past work. And both are absolutely essential to get us to heaven. I look forward to working through Romans 13 with you in an attempt to be informed by the scriptures of how we should approach our civic responsibilities in our neighborhoods, communities, and cities. All the while, becoming great doers of "good" as a result of the love Christ first demonstrated for us upon the cross.
