Romans Road - Week 2: "Peace Sells, But Who's Buying?"
Today we are continuing a new three-part sermon series drawn from Paul's letter to the Romans, entitled "The Romans Road"
This series is a brief exploration into the themes of Paul's letter to the church in Rome and is designed to help us understand more fully that the road to redemption is paved with the grace that comes to us through the gifts of faith and the radical love of Jesus.
Today we will explore how the road to redemption is also a path to peace—the peace that can’t be explained.
I will share with you some wise theological words from one of the more unlikely sources you would hear about on a Sunday morning from a preacher...
They come from a heavy metal band from the 80s that are still making music today, and I actually got the chance to see them in concert here in Austin last summer. I am, of course, talking about the band Megadeth.
In 1986, the year I graduated from high school, Megadeth released perhaps their best album, "Peace Sells, But Who's Buying?" Here's a snippet of the lyrics from the title track:
Oh, I'll be the first in line
But it better work this time
Can you put a price on peace?
Peace sells, but who's buying?
