Called to preach…the gospel

  • Romans 1:1-17

Do a SOUL Journal about what this passage says about the gospel.  See especially vs 16-17

Here are steps 4-6 of the gospel in seven steps…
  1. Redemption:God stepped into time and space and took on human flesh, in order to live the righteous life we could not, and to take our punishment for sin on Himself by dying a criminal’s death in our place; He rose again from the grave so we might also be raised to life, free from the penalty of sin; 
  2. Belief in Christ: If we have faith in Jesus Christ who was crucified for our sins and raised for our justification, that is, if we believe He died and was resurrected for us, and that He is who He is – the eternal God and King of Kings – then we will be saved from death and hell – we are as good as innocent in God’s courtroom; 
  3. Salvation by grace:When we are saved by God’s grace through faith in Christ, then we are no longer “under” judgment of the law, nor any requirement to perform “well enough” to save ourselves, which is not possible in the first place; rather we are “justified” (proclaimed innocent!);
