Paul has a challenge before him. He wants to mend a division among the Jewish and Gentile believers in Rome. This division, if left unaddressed, threatens the life and mission of the Church in Rome. How do you mend a divided church? You mend a divided church by reminding them that both Jews and Gentiles share a common lineage, a common grace, and a common acceptance. There are no insiders and there are no outsiders... This is true for all people: Jew and Gentile, the short and the tall, the smart and the dumb, the rich and the poor, the fast and the slow, the young and the old… This is true for all people, in all places, in all languages, for all time!
