01. The Book of Romans
Romans 1 – It is pretty hard to convince someone that they are sick and in need of a cure if they don’t believe they are sick. Yet millions of people every year die unnecessarily from disease called sin. To provide a cure for a disease, you must properly diagnose the disease. The next step is to treat the disease and not just the symptoms.
The Book of Romans is Christianity 101. Romans is probably the best book at explaining what Christianity is. The text teaches what it actually means to be saved and what we are saved from. Paul was ready and eager to share with the world this vital message. Why? What was it that compelled him to risk everything? He said in verse 16, For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes.
