We begin Romans

Our reading today is Romans chapter 1. Verses 1 through 17 contain the normal features of New Testament letter introductions. Verses 1 through 6 an identification of the writer, verse 7 an identification of the readers, verses 8 through 15 a thanksgiving, and in verses16 and 17 the theme of the letter. In verses 18 through 32 Paul begins teaching about universal sinfulness. That Gentiles and Jews are equally under sin’s power and cannot find favor with God by any action of their own. Paul stresses that only through faith can you be made right in God’s sight. Each day we will discuss each section till we get through chapter one, then we’ll go on chapter two.
