Truth for Thursday

Romans 1:16-17
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God in salvation fr everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.  Ft in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith, as it is written. "The just shall live by faith."

Romans 3:23-26
"for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus."

Romans 6:12-14
"Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.  And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.  For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace."

Romans 8:28-30
"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.  For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.  Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified' and whom He justified, these He also glorified."

Romans 10:14-15
"How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed"  And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard:  And how shall they hear without a preacher:  And how shall they preach unless they are sent"  As it is written: 'Beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace.  Who bring glad tidings of good things.'" 

Romans 12:9-13
  "Let love be without hypocrisy.  Abhor what is evil.  Cling to what is good.  Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another, not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer, distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality." 

"For we shall all stand before the judgement seat of Christ.  For it is written; 'As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.'  So then each of us shall give account of himself to God."

Romans 14:19
"Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another."

Romans was written by Paul to a church in Rome.  
This letter contains a detailed description of
1) the sinfulness of man (1:18-3:20)
2) an extensive discussion of justification by faith (3:21-5:11)
3) an elaborate explanation of sanctification (5:12-8:39)
4) a strong section on the doctrine of election (9:1-29)
5) an explanation of what happened to the nation of Israel and the destiny of God's people (9:1-11:36)
6) an extended section addressing spiritual gifts (12:1-8)
7) instructions on the believers relationship to government (13:1-14)
Romans is the most doctrinal book n the Bible.  Because it provides a systematic outline of the essentials of the Christian faith, it is as useful to the mature believer as it is to someone who wants a short introduction to the Christian faith .
(The details about the book of Romans & the outline are taken from the Introduction sections to the book in the New King James Version of the Holy Bible.)
