About This Series:

J. I. Packer wrote, Disregard the study of God, and you sentence yourself to stumble and blunder through life blindfolded, as it were, with no sense of direction. There is little doubt that the one thing most needed for the church and every believer today is the study of God. In the closing words of the Book of Romans, Paul directs our attention once again to the glory of God. He sharpens our perspective and exalts our eminent Lord. Stephen’s exposition of this great text leads us to proclaim—even to sing—with joy and wonder the greatness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ. Get ready to sing along . . . to our magnificent Master and King!

In the final doxology of Paul, Stephen unpacks the profound layers of praise encapsulated in the words "to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, be the glory forever." This message emphasizes the uniqueness of God, the accessibility through Jesus Christ, and the commendable nature of God’s wisdom and glory. It's an invitation to embrace this unending praise, affirming the truth of God's word and committing to live it out. As the exposition of Romans concludes, we're left with a heartfelt "Amen," an affirmation of the truth revealed and a commitment to carry these teachings forward.
