Romans (Bible in 90 Days)

Romans was written by Paul as a formal recognition before he visited the Christian church in Rome. In this letter, Paul introduces himself and gives the believers a rundown of his message to them.

By writing to the Romans, Paul gives a calculated set of foundations for the Christian church. He explains how, as humans, we all sin, but all are equally available for salvation through our faith. Paul also explains how through Christ we can have an intimate relationship with God. He talks about how to use spiritual gifts and how to love each other. Through a careful study of Romans, Paul sets forth everything Christians need to believe.

Romans also shows us that Christian living is not abstract or unattainable. Instead, it is a way to live a better, more fulfilling life. Knowing God and truly accepting his grace will transform our lives.

“So the promise is received by faith. It is given as a free gift. And we are all certain to receive it, whether or not we live according to the Law of Moses, if we have faith like Abraham’s, for Abraham is the father of all who believe.” Romans 4:16

“Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.” Romans 5:1-2

“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groaning that cannot be expressed in words.” Romans 8:26
