The message on December 9, 2018 was on regarding the thought of "I Shall Be Satisfied". Wayne going into the Christmas season will soon vacation to his homeland down South but has one more week of giving finals at his day job. In class, some students have approached him to consider changing careers because statistics is used in the profession of an Actuary, and they make so much more money. In response, Wayne expresses how much he loves his job and is satisfied teaching because of his love for it. In fact, many people are chasing wealth and happiness through things but we learn in scripture how vain that is. Ecclesiastes teaches us that all is vanity under the sun but we are satisfied because of what we believe in the resurrection when we will be changed. Wayne is quite satisfied knowing that upon death he will wait for the Lord Christ Jesus to call him forth and be changed to have his new body that will be fashioned to continue his calling. This message was one of celebrating how the Creator pierced the vanity and became flesh when the word dwealt among us and then died for our sins and was raised so that we might recieve the resurrection that the Apostle Paul was explaining in Philippians 3:1-12 KJV. The scripture reading was in Ecclesiates 1:1-11 KJV

Many books have been written about Romans because of its importance. In the canon, Romans follows the Gospels and the Acts because it is so important that has so many great themes in it. Romans talks about the wrath of God, the Gospel of God, it talks bout Sin and Sins, and takes us back to the covenant with Abraham at Sinai, then to back to Adam.
