Before I start the introduction, I would like to let you know this will be a joint effort, between myself and my girlfriend Allie. We have decided to make the first book we study together to be the Book of Romans, to not only center lives on the Gospel but also our relationship. Thus we have decided to share this study with you as we study a block of verses each week. In the Blog we will have separate sections discussing what we have learned, what stood out to us, and maybe even convicted us. So I hope you will join us as we venture down the Roman Road.
Today I will be doing a simple introduction to the book of Romans as we prepare our first weeks study.
Romans is a powerful book that reminds us the Gospel every step of the way. For many its one of their favorite books for this very reason. It tells us everything to what the wages of sin are, to were we can find hope. It reminds us as Christians what we are suppose to be doing and what we are suppose to look like.
Romans was written by the Apostle Paul to the members of the Church of Rome. Unlike most of Paul’s letter to churches this one was not to rebuke them as the Church at Rome was sound, but instead was to teach the great truths of the Gospel. The Gospel which is were all hope comes from.
As for Paul himself, he is the man that was once known as Saul, and as he was killing Christians, God personally confronted him on the Damascus Road, and He was changed forever. This man experienced tons of persecution he was beaten, tortured, stoned, arrested, shipwrecked and had several attempts against his life. But all through this he remained true to the Gospel. He was beheaded in Rome for his beliefs.
So with that, I hope you will enjoy this Study with Allie and myself. As always though, keep any comments clean. I don’t mind comments that disagree or have other opinions, but be respectful in the same sense. All comments I find outside of this will be deleted.
Once again thanks for reading and share these as you go along.
