In Romans 13:11-14 Paul calls you to wake up, to walk properly, as in the daytime, and to put on Christ.
“[I]n the Old Testament the bond between God and Israel, as his covenant people, is expressed in a variety of ways, but perhaps most evocatively in the description of God himself as ‘the portion’ of his people (Pss. 73:26; 119:57; Jer. 10:16). Reciprocally, they are ‘the Lord’s portion’ (Deut. 32:9)…. The climactic realization of this covenant bond, this reciprocal possession between the triune God and his people, the church, is centered for Paul in union with Christ.” (Richard B. Gaffin, Jr., By Faith, Not by Sight, pp. 40, 41).
This Friday evening the 101 Bible Study meets in Astoria to look at that passage of Scripture.
