Step 2 of the lesson, “Rome: Facing Limitations” suggests that Christians creatively make new acquaintances with whom they can share the gospel. I thought about the lyric, “Like to get to know you” by Spanky and Our Gang.

Marketers want to get to know you for business reasons, but increasing use of automation tends to make an impersonal world.

Paul called a meeting with the Jewish leaders in Rome. He may not have known them personally, but you can bet he knew them as a group—their concerns, interests and desires. You might say, he was “group-wise”.

What “group” do you know well? Or, what group is your church successfully reaching at this time? For example, my class had five visiting couples last Sunday. I’d like to get to know this group!
