THE LETTER TO THE ROMANS

To be sure, Paul wrote very heavy with theological truth but always with the heart of a pastor, as one always concerned about the well being of God's people.

I have sat through many studies on the book of Romans and almost all have one thing in common, they sound like a theological thesis. However, in reality the letter to the Romans is just that a letter to the church at Rome.

To be sure, Paul wrote very heavy with theological truth but always with the heart of a pastor, as one always concerned about the well being of God’s people. The main point in this letter is the assurance that believers are meant to possess. Paul brings his arguments to a perfect crescendo when he wrote,

“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38, 39)

The “us” that Paul speaks of in verse 39 refers to all those that accept the core beliefs that he sets forth in his letter, which then produces the true fruit of repentance in their lives. The forerunner of Jesus, that is John the Baptist understood that true salvation always produces a transformation of heart and behavior. For this reason he said,

“Therefore bring forth fruit in keeping with repentance; and do not suppose that you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham for our father’; for I say to you, that God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham.” (Matthew 3:8, 9)

Paul explained through theological truth the true meaning of salvation and how it works, and how it guarantees salvation to those who possess it. In the following blogs we will be looking at the assurance of salvation and how the apostle Paul proves it through Christian teaching.

About GI

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
