The Romans Edition explains the doctrinal foundation of the Christian faith. It was written by the Apostle Paul to all the Christians in Rome, a diverse group who lacked clear leadership and teaching. The Book of Romans contains the most detailed explanation of salvation by grace through faith in the scriptures.
The book of Romans is one of the most important group of scriptures in all the Word of God. Romans is the definitive explanation of God’s dealing with mankind by grace instead of proportional to our performance. Failure to understand this truth is the number one reason why people fail to experience God’s best in their lives. The religious system of Paul’s day was proclaiming the exact opposite of grace, and sad to say, so is much of “Christianity” today.
In 1524-25, Martin Luther was trapped in a religious system that was destroying his life. He was very zealous of trying to please God by all his holiness, but it was to no avail. The more he tried, the less peace and hope he had. Then he received the message proclaimed in the book of Romans. The revelation of Rom. 3:28 changed his life and ultimately the world. Every subsequent revival in history has had an awakening to the grace of God as one of its main themes.
Today, we need a new awakening to the grace of God every bit as much as in the 16th century. Depression, failure, hatred, and everything satan seeks to do in our lives can be broken through wholeheartedly embracing God’s grace. As Paul said at the beginning of his letter to the Romans, “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation.” Paul is speaking of more than just being born again here. He is saying that the Gospel contains the power of God for everything we need in our lives. The Gospel is the good news of God’s grace.
