I'm studying Romans again!
Each time I read these wonderful verses I find
a nugget from God that I have missed in previous
When Paul wrote this epistle to the church in Rome,
that congregation must have already been in existence
for a number of years, for Paul writes that he had desired
to visit them "these many years: (15:23). To him this church
was strong enough to help him carry out further
Paul was born about the same time as our Lord.
He was used by the Lord in his missionary and evangelistic
activities to set in motion a great deal of the Christian Church,
the Body of Christ on earth,
to the extent that billions have been directly
or indirectly affected by his ministry.
Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit,
he wrote the foundation documents for the
Christian way of life,
the Word of God
which has changed the lives of millions.
The Book of Romans is really the chief part of the
New Testament and the very purest Gospel,
and is worthy not only that every Christian
should know it word for word,
but occupy himself with it every day,
as the daily bread of the soul.
It can never be read or pondered too much,
and the more it is dealt with the more precious
and the better it taste!
After a campaign of terror against Christians,
by the emperor Nero,
Paul was condemned and executed in Rome
"that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord,
and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved;
for with the heart a person believes,
resulting in righteousness,
and with the mouth he confessed,
resulting in salvation."
Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again!
Have a great day and remember
Jesus is Lord!
