The letter to the Romans stands as the clearest and most systematic
presentation of Christian doctrine in all the Scriptures. Paul began by
discussing that which is most easily observable in the world the
sinfulness of all humanity.
All people have been condemned due to our rebellion against God.
However, God in His grace offers us justification by faith in His Son
Jesus. When we are justified by God, we receive redemption, or
salvation, because Christ’s blood covers our sin. But Paul made it clear
that the believer’s pursuit of God doesn’t stop with salvation; it
continues as each of us is sanctified made holy as we persist in
following Him. Paul’s treatment of these issues offers a logical and
complete presentation of how a person can be saved from the penalty
and power of his or her sin.
