Landscape of the Book of Romans: Paul was in Corinth, on his way to Israel to deliver a collection for the poor in Jerusalem. He planned to visit the church in Rome on his way to Spain.

Themes in the Book of Romans: Our natural inclination to sin separates us from God. We cannot make ourselves right or earn salvation on our own.

In his loving kindness, God provided a way to redeem us through his Son Jesus Christ, who paid our sin-debt through his sacrificial death.

By accepting Christ as Savior and believing in his atoning work, we are saved. Jesus’ righteousness is credited to us.

The Holy Spirit works in us to help us avoid sin and grow in holiness. God’s grace, not keeping the law, makes us acceptable.

God’s plan is just and fair. Both Jews and Gentiles are eligible to come to Christ and receive salvation.

Sincere service to Christ is an appropriate way to express our gratitude to God for his gift of salvation. When we work together with other members of the body of Christ, the church, we build each other up and give honor and glory to God
