The very last post for the Romans Study For Kids!
Today we begin digging into our last chapter in the book of Romans. I pray that you have learned a lot about yourself, about the church, and about Jesus as you have worked through this study.
We are going to do the first part of Romans 16 a little different. Are you ready?
In Romans 16:1-16 Paul mentions a lot of names. These are all people that Paul asks the church in Rome to greet and to allow to come into their homes and worship God with them.
As you read through Romans 16:1-16 printed below, your instructions is to underline or circle all the adjectives that Paul uses to describe the people he mentions.
1 I commend to you our sister Phoebe, who is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea;
2 that you receive her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints, and that you help her in whatever matter she may have need of you; for she herself has also been a helper of many, and of myself as well.
3 Greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus,
4 who for my life risked their own necks, to whom not only do I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles;
5 also greet the church that is in their house. Greet Epaenetus, my beloved, who is the first convert to Christ from Asia.
6 Greet Mary, who has worked hard for you.
7 Greet Andronicus and Junias, my kinsmen and my fellow prisoners, who are outstanding among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.
8 Greet Ampliatus, my beloved in the Lord.
9 Greet Urbanus, our fellow worker in Christ, and Stachys my beloved.
10 Greet Apelles, the approved in Christ. Greet those who are of the household of Aristobulus.
11 Greet Herodion, my kinsman. Greet those of the household of Narcissus, who are in the Lord.
12 Greet Tryphaena and Tryphosa, workers in the Lord. Greet Persis the beloved, who has worked hard in the Lord.
13 Greet Rufus, a choice man in the Lord, also his mother and mine.
14 Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas and the brethren with them.
15 Greet Philologus and Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints who are with them.
16 Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you.
THINK ABOUT IT…
If your name was added to this chapter what would you want Paul to say about you?
Would you want to be known as a choice boy or girl in the Lord?
Would you want to be known as a hard worker for the Lord?
Would you want to be known as an outstanding servant of Christ?
I know I do!
Take a moment now and spend some time with God and ask Him how He sees you. First of all do you have a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ? Have you asked Jesus to forgive you of your sins and to be the Lord over your life?
That’s enough for today! Tomorrow we finish
17 Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and hindrances contrary to the teaching which you learned, and turn away from them.
18 For such men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.
19 For the report of your obedience has reached to all; therefore I am rejoicing over you, but I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil.
20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.
21 Timothy my fellow worker greets you, and so do Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, my kinsmen.
22 I, Tertius, who write this letter, greet you in the Lord.
23 Gaius, host to me and to the whole church, greets you. Erastus, the city treasurer greets you, and Quartus, the brother.
24 [The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.]
Read Romans 16:17. How does this verse begin?
Now I __ __ __ __ you
THINK ABOUT IT…
Does it sound like Paul has something very important to tell the church in Rome?
Yes, he does!
Paul is giving the church in a Rome a warning. He is telling them what they need to be on the look out for in order to keep growing in the fullness of God. This warning is still important for us today.
Read Romans 16:17. What does Paul tell the church in Rome that they need to keep their on? Circle all that apply.
those who cause dissensions
those who eat weird food
those who cause hindrances
those who teach them wrong things about God
those wear different kind of clothes
According to Romans 16:17 what is the church in Rome to do when they see people doing what Paul has warned them about?
__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ from them
Read Romans 16:18. Why does the church need to turn away from them? Answer true (T) or false (F).
___ they are slaves to their own appetites
___ they are slaves to Jesus Christ
___ they use their smooth speech to preach the gospel
___ they use their smooth speech to deceive hearts
THINK ABOUT IT…
We have to be very careful who we listen to and learn from. There are lots of people who have the ability to draw a crowd because they can say things in a way that gets people’s attention.
Think about what happened to Eve in the garden in Genesis 3:1-6. The serpent was able to deceive Eve by his crafty words. He was able to catch her alone and off guard and tricked her into believing a lie instead of believing God.
Read Romans 16:19. What does Paul want the church in Rome to be?
__ __ __ __ in what is good
__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ in what is evil
One of the lies that the devil will tell you is that you have to know all about evil in order to know what is really good. He still tries to trick us into thinking that just knowing God’s way is not enough. That’s why it is so important for you to do what you are doing right now. Keep learning more and more about God and His Word.
