ROMANS 1
Contributed by Jerral Campfield

We are going to see the deplorable conditions of the Gentile world which begins the proof that the doctrine of justification is by faith that Paul laid down in Acts 1:17.
Romans 1 New King James Version (NKJV)
Greeting
Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures, concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. Notice Paul calls himself a self a bondservant; that is one who is steward in the house, that was called out by God out of bondage to Rome now under the authority of God. Totally now given over to do God bedding dedicated to a task from the task master God. Now bring good news to those lost and dying without hope. He now is concerned with representing Christ not the government of man but Gods Government, representing the Son of God Jesus.
He shows his human nature made of the seed of David, that is born of the house of David as was Joseph his supposed father. David had a special promise made to him concerning the Messiah a Kingly offer. He had a divine nature declared to be the Son of God by eternal generation or as it is here explained according to the Spirit of God and His holiness. What a testimony of God grace, love, mercy, sanctification, holiness and purity in one who was persecuting Christian not a representative under the authority of God Himself. Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name, among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ; Here we are seeing the fruit of abiding in the vine for God shows His grace to one of His apostles that is obeying the Lord by his faith in God. He now is employed by God in a work of service for Gods glory. Obedience is necessary to get anything from God and Here God called Paul out of being a trouble maker to a trouble solver as he obeyed the Lord. Working at obeying by faith God is going to reward now. Obedience to faith answers the laws of faith. We are connected to God like in a yoke with the Lord. So we are on the same level with others of like precious faith. No respect of persons with God. We obey then we are connected to walk and talk out our salvation.
To all who are in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: What a statement here beloved of God all becoming Saints, 1. That is a privilege of Christians; Beloved, members of His family or body. 2. It is our duty now to work be holy, called to be saints so God can sanctify us as a peculiar people that love God to be beloved called Saints. It is labour to answer to the name Christian.
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. What kindness shown here Grace to You and Peace for God our Father and Lord. God created us for goodwill and peace now grace is an added benefit that bring favor. Peace with God and peace with yourself is one of the benefits of Salvation or abiding in the vine.
Desire to Visit Rome
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. It is good to begin everything with blessing God. My God; very personal and that is what He wants from us He is mine and I am His. So are you in His hand as you have faith. Paul had experienced what people thought of other Christians and Paul wanted all to know they are important and he loved them. You have to love someone if you expect them to love you and God loves the world and craves people to love Him  For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers, 10 making request if, by some means, now at last I may find a way in the will of God to come to you. Here Paul is showing His respect for God knowing He knows all about us and desires we do not hurt ourselves by hurting the Lord. I give or work at serving with pleasure and I want the best for you all so I pray of you that I can come to you. It seems like when we pray for others something happen to us that make one feel needed or appreciated. 11 For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established— 12 that is, that I may be encouraged together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me. Paul was a people pleaser and wanted to share what he experienced God doing in his life to people that may not have known him personally so they might be encouraged by what the Lord showed Him before and what he is feeling now. So He was a witness of the power of God where every he went and since he is in Rome now a wicked area he want to share the love of God and the way God can protect and provide what is needed, to grow one another faith.
13 Now I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that I often planned to come to you (but was hindered until now), that I might have some fruit among you also, just as among the other Gentiles. He is saying here I sure would like to have seen you earlier but I was detained hindered, but now I want to see God hands upon your lives so I can have some fruit among you, as I did among the Gentiles. It is strange the harder one works the greater the end results and here Paul was always working to make sure everyone heard the Gospel.  14 I am a debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to wise and to unwise. Paul always seemed to feel like he was in debt to other for what he did and he felt strongly that anyone could be saved, regardless of nationality or race, wise or foolish in their thinking, 15 So, as much as is in me, I am ready to preach the gospel to you who are in Rome also. What a commitment to a cause of preaching the gospel that is ready to go to work presenting the way, truth and life to all in Rome. May we see everything that has any value must be used and that takes work and Paul was a working making tents to support his minister or working at keeping on track prepared to preach anywhere at any time. Now he is getting ready to reveal his faith and how the Just shall live by Faith. The Just Live by Faith

Maintaining A Forgiving Spirit while Ministering to the Broken

MAINTAINING A FORGIVING SPIRIT WHILE MINISTERING TO THE BROKEN
January 25, 2018
by Ted Cunningham
We are called to encourage one another and lift each other up. These days, it only takes a few minutes online to see a lot of hurting people and broken relationships. A quick scroll through our social media channels can be overwhelming and discouraging.
I heard one pastor years ago say, “Hurt people hurt people.” Church leaders have a unique opportunity to take the hit from hurting people and help them work through the pain. Pastors maintain many relationships and make many mistakes in the process. A genuine, heartfelt apology and a forgiving spirit can go a long way towards building thriving relationships. Frankly, the words “I’m sorry” may be the secret to ministry longevity.
Years ago, Gary Smalley shared with me five ways to maintain a forgiving spirit while ministering to the broken. They impacted me profoundly. I hope they do the same for you.
1. BE TENDER
Make a decision to seek reconciliation in your stressed and strained relationships. How do you do that? Pay attention to your approach. If your words, tone, and body language place you on the offensive, this puts the other person in the position of playing defense. If you find yourself taking the wrong approach, then walk back out of the room and start again. An approach such as, “If you have a free moment I could really use your help on this” is far more tender and much more effective.
2. PRACTICE EMPATHY
Nurturing a forgiving spirit in a relationship means desiring to understand the other person above being understood. If you have offended someone, try to find out what’s at the core of the offense. Here’s a little secret: You can discover the core issue by asking the right questions. Resist the temptation to defend yourself and instead focus on how you can restore and reconcile the relationship. Remove words like “but” and “I” as you treasure hunt for the truth of what’s happened.
When you’re treasure hunting, you may hear some unpleasant things. You may hear phrases such as, “I felt like you didn’t really care for me,” “I felt like I wasn’t really important to you,” “I felt like your work was more important than our family,” or “I felt that you were being selfish and manipulative.” Those kinds of words can be hard to hear, but don’t be put off by them. Continue to approach the situation with gentleness. When you care enough to find out what happened and why, your empathy establishes a foundation for reconciliation.

CHRIST AMBASSADORS
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Saturday, 27 January 2018

This month has been a month when I have attended three meeting in regards to crime that is going on in our Yakama Valley and it is getting out of hand to where the criminal is being arrested and turned lose to commit more crimes. This reminds me of the last days Matthew, Luke, Mark and John talked about in the Bible.
It seems like Satan’s host are challenging Schools to stop advertising for Gods help. People involved with baking are restricted in what they can’t do, as well as parents, so discipline is out the window. Satanist are challenging Missouri’s law on abortion. People are bent on destroying history, for they are ashamed yet today and can’t get over it. Our Yakama Reservation is bombarded with bitterness for many can’t forget and forgive themselves of the past injustices and hang to the past developing bitterness, to where in is turning ugly. 
I am concerned for we know what to do, but can’t seem to get the job done, so we have to tolerate evil, right in our own back yard.  Education is finding absenteeism is preventing our youth from being responsible for their behaviors and attitudes, with the thought of who cares.
Yes, you care and I care, so we pray that God will show Himself alive, willing to take us where we are and give us a heart to become more and more like Him.
We need to understand the power of abiding in the Lord, in order to produce the good works that is necessary for all to be blest as we continue to address what is needed to grow in His likeness.
We are all Ambassadors for Christ or an ambassador for the enemy Satan. 2 Corinthians 5:20
Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.
What a challenge for an ambassador represents a county, government, family, or King. It is King Jesus, who has chosen us and ordained us to represent Him with the message of the cross. He or She is a Herald of Good News, Jesus Saves, keeps and satisfies. Here is the song we used to sing as youth in the 50’s and 60’s that gave us purpose as youth to represent the Lord in all we did in body, soul and spirit. We accepted the Lord and now we have a work to do in the kingdom of God.
