Romans 16:17-20, 25-27

Paul concludes his letter to the believers in Rome with a warning, a directive, and a blessing. His closing is a reminder that having received the truth of God, the children of God must be vigilant and discerning about remaining in the truth. They must apply the word of God but not go further than what the word of God says. And ultimately, the last word for every child of God is to join with Paul in declaring, “to the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ! Amen.”
