... Paul is a "master pastor". He recognizes that any hope to mend this broken fellowship in Rome will not be established upon his pastoral counsel. Unity will come to a people who rediscover and rejoice in God's faithfulness personally expressed to all Roman believers through Jesus Christ. This "revival" is the foundation for Roman unity and for ours today.
LifeGroups provide us with a consistent opportunity to celebrate our common heritage, experience, and joy together as a family in Christ. As we share our lives we reinforce a reality that is both objective and personal because "for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist" (1 Corinthians 8.6). Therefore we will "with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Romans 15.6) -- because that is what His family does!
