Paul Dybdahl

Prayer for Healing

Many years ago I heard the story of a man who walked across a dangerous waterfall on a tightrope. After he had made his successful crossing, the tightrope walker asked the cheering crowd, “Do you believe that I could walk back across the river carrying someone on my shoulders?”  The crowd roared in affirmation. Yes, they believed he could. Then the man called out, “Who will be the volunteer to ride on my shoulders?” Suddenly, the shouts died away and the crowd grew strangely quiet. 

La redención para judíos y gentiles

A lo largo de los ocho primeros capítulos de Romanos, Pablo ha subrayado repetidamente el carácter incluyente del evangelio. Este énfasis nos resuena a la mayoría de nosotros. Como lectores tolerantes que somos, con nuestra mente abierta y actitud accesible, la carta de Pablo nos produce regocijo al anunciarnos que el evangelio es "el poder de Dios para la salvación de todo aquel que cree" (Rom 1:16). La proclama de Pablo de que "la justicia de Dios por medio de la fe en Jesucristo [es] para todos los creyentes" (Rom 3:22) suena maravillosamente en nuestros oídos sensibles.

Redemption for Jew and Gentile

Throughout the first eight chapters of Romans, Paul has repeatedly stressed the inclusiveness of the gospel. This emphasis is one that resonates with most of us. As tolerant, accepting, and open-minded readers of Paul’s letter, we rejoice in the announcement that the gospel is “the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes” (Rom 1:16). Paul’s proclamation that “righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe” (Rom 3:22) rings beautifully in our sensitive ears.
