For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:16-17
In Romans, the apostle Paul has written the believer’s handbook. It is a book of doctrine which every believer should know. Indeed, how can we believe without knowing it? Romans is centered on the truth that all have sinned and that justification comes by God’s grace alone through faith in Christ alone. This is God’s way for sinners to receive the righteousness which comes from Him. After presenting eleven chapters explaining this doctrine, Paul graciously closes with a clear explanation of how it is to be worked out in practical ways in our lives.
