Ethiopian-born, Swedish-American chef Marcus Samuelsson has become a major celebrity chef with several restaurants, including the Red Rooster in Harlem, New York. Marcus has achieved notoriety not only through his restaurants but through appearances on Food Network shows such as Chopped.
Perhaps what has made his popularity so enduring is how he walked along side young chefs. He has taught at culinary institutes in Sweden and mentored chefs in his restaurant. The best teachers are the ones who don’t just tell you what to do; they show you how to do it.
In the Book of Romans, Paul did just that. For 11 chapters, he gave us the most complete theology of salvation in Scripture. Then in Romans 12, he showed us how to live out that salvation. The awe-inspiring mercy of God moves us to present ourselves as living sacrifices, a spiritual act of worship. In verses 9-21, we see that life of worship on display when we love and honor others. Today, we’re going to learn the recipe.
