In Romans, we discover the character of God: first, perfectly holy; then, sacrificially loving; and finally, completely sovereign—over all of creation, over government, over all of history. We learn that He is the one true God, who is faithful to keep his promises to us, to Israel, to his Word. If there were ever a speech worth listening to or a letter worth reading, it is this one. With so much truth about our reality without Christ and the freedom and hope in Christ, instruction on handling the law, and the life available to us in the Spirit, a year spent in Romans is a year well spent.
That’s why we’re excited to study Romans this year. Across our campuses, there will be several opportunities to study and meditate on the truths found in Romans.
