Summary: This was Paul’s cry to the Romans, and it is his cry to us. Are you ready to listen, learn, and be launched for Jesus?

PAUL the apostle is important in the New Testament because he wrote almost half of it (13 of 29 books). The letters of Paul start with Romans and ends Philemon. Our focus for this series is with Romans. Paul wasn’t sure that he himself would ever reach Rome, yet it was paramount that the Church at Rome hear his message from God.

The book of Romans is a comprehensive panoramic view of real Christian truth. The book of Romans is written for all of us, whether we are Sinners, Skeptics, or Saints. We were and are sinners still today; we are just forgiven sinners if we have Jesus as our Master. Most of us still maintain our skeptic status by questioning the word of God. We say that we believe it to be His inerrant word, but we don’t fully believe it. If we did, we would be more like Paul. And finally, many of us are improving saints. By this, I mean we are becoming more and more obedient to our Master. So it is my humble opinion that we will always be in all of these categories in one way or another until that day we stand before our Lord and Master, not as sinners, not as skeptics, but by His righteousness a completed saint.
