Main point summary
See LAB 144 here LAB Principle: Subordinating Relationship Sentences and paragraphs are filled with different parts (clauses, phrases, etc) connected by words called conjunctions ( and, so, because, for, therefore , etc). A subordinating relationship simply means that one piece of a sentence or paragraph supports the other in some way. The pieces are not on the same plane; one statement holds up the other. The main piece, or main point, is the one being held up by the lower, or subordinating piece. In This Lab Pastor John draws the logic of the passage out with a technique called leveling. Essentially, he is visually depicting the subordinate relationships: higher levels are supported by lower ones. Study Questions 1. What do you praise God most passionately for in your own life? What about this causes your heart to sing? I praise Him most passionately for His mercy and grace. Because these are what I need most in my life. 2. What does Paul praise God for in Romans 11:33–36 ? Paul praises God for the depth of riches and wisdom and knowledge of God. 3. In what ways are you not trusting God’s unsurpassed wisdom in your life? In what ways can you praise him afresh this week? When I first and foremost turn to my own thoughts, or turn to others first, rather than seek God for His ways in situations I face, I am not trusting God's great and inscrutable wisdom. I need to work at this and pray for this. I can praise Him afresh for His far, far superior wisdom and knowledge.
