September 1, 2022 - Romans 1-4

“. . . the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations, including you who are called to belong to Jesus Christ” (1:2-7).

The good news of the gospel, well, that’s what Paul’s epistle to the Romans is about. And for a summary statement, those verses pretty much tell the story. Our redemption was planned long before and through the death and resurrection of a man, a descendant of David, we have been redeemed and not only we but many from all the nations! That just about says it all, doesn't it?

No other story will bear repeating

As often as this is told;

God’s glad good news of His love to sinners

Are tidings which never grow old.

Tell it again and again,

Tell it again and again,

The Gospel story, of grace and glory,

Bears telling again and again. --Ada R. Habershon (1915)
