The main thing, is to keep the main thing, the main thing.
And that's Jesus.

In this powerful section of Romans, Paul unveils the remarkable transformation that takes place through the grace of God as he turns the narrative from despair to hope, from sin to salvation and from rags to righteousness. Expanding on his earlier divisions in Romans, Paul explores the depth of God’s grace and how it impacts the whole entire human race. Here’s a snapshot of this large bucket #3:

[A] In each segment, Paul masterfully weaves together the threads of God’s grace, demonstrating its metamorphic power as he reveals how God’s righteousness is made available to all through faith in Jesus Christ, which transcends any religious or moral background.
[B-D] Through faith, Paul highlights the pivotal role of Abraham, who serves as a model of trust in God’s promises. The implications of justification are explored, unveiling the peace, hope, and reconciliation that believers receive. And it’s through the sacrificial death and resurrection of Christ that the bondage of sin is broken, and believers are set free to live a new life in the Spirit.
[E-F] Paul acknowledges the struggle with sin that believers face, painting an honest picture of the ongoing battle within. Yet, he assures his readers that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. The Spirit of God empowers believers to overcome, changing their lives from within and guiding them toward eternal glory.
Join us in Romans as Paul skillfully presents the Gospel.

The stakes couldn’t be higher, and Paul passionately implores his readers to embrace the game-changing power of God’s grace, for it is through faith in Christ that true life is found. #therestisyettocome
