I love the way Paul contrasts the two words: Kurios and Doulos. It reminds me distinctly of my obligation to the King.
I resonate when Paul speaks of things to set apart to serve the Good News of God. I also think that it would be wonderful to bless my friends with the words “grace” and “peace.”
On page thirteen of Barclay’s commentary on the letter to the Romans, Paul said that he “knew himself to be chosen, not for special honor, but for special responsibility.” This is precisely what I need to remember as I embark on this latest trip to London.
