Romans 13:11-14 Augustine’s Text
1600 years ago Augustine sat under a fig tree and wept over the sins that had plagued him since adolescence: How long Lord? Will you be angry forever? He heard the voice of child coming from neighbor’s house: Take up and read. He opened Paul’s epistles and read the first verses he saw. It was Romans 13:13-14 Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires. For the first time Augustine trusted in the death of Christ and was a changed man!
