Salvation explained

July 31

Daily Bible Reading: Romans 1

Verse of the Day: Romans 1:7 – “to all that are in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

We end this month in the beginning of the letter from Paul to the Roman believers. This is considered a prime example of a first-century legal treatise. Paul was trained by Gamaliel in all Jewish education. And he was well versed in the Greco-Roman thought patterns. He was the perfect choice of God for ministry to Gentiles.

In our readings this next month we will see Paul present a case for the Gospel doctrinally, nationally, and practically. He will deal with faith, hope, and love. 

In this letter, Paul works through the doctrine of God, humanity, and sin. All necessary for a proper understanding of salvation from God’s wrath to our peace with Him.

Prayer: Spirit, as I read this letter, guide me, instruct me, and provide me with a mind, will, heart, and determination to live in His Victory.
