Romans: God's Gift of Righteouness

  • Feb 2006 Issue
Monthly Issues

The Romans Road. That’s what evangelists have labeled a handful of verses in Romans that clearly present the gospel. But the entire book of Romans includes more than just the path to salvation—it travels a road that spans the entire history of man’s relationship with God.

In Romans, Paul covers everything from the foreknowledge of God to the Fall of man; from justification by faith to the hope of eternal glory and the salvation of Israel.

For the unbeliever, Romans is a powerful explanation of man’s desperate need for God’s righteousness and God’s mysterious method of bestowing it upon us. For the believer, Romans is a mission statement for the Christian life. Hope in suffering, imitation of Christ, submission to government, and victory over sin—Romans is full of instruction for righteous living.

This month in Today in the Word, we’ll come across some of the most beloved, bedrock verses of your faith—but we’ll also see them in the full context of a theologically rich, magnificently inspiring epistle. Thank you for walking this life-changing road with us.
