Romans expound the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ to both Jewish and Gentile believers. It’s written to everyone! Anybody who truly understands and embraces its message will be forever changed in the way they relate to God. The revelation of God’s grace contained in Romans delivers believers from a performance mentality which bases relationship with God on our own efforts to a total trust and reliance upon the Lord. This revelation is foundational for maintaining a close relationship with God. We might do good for a while, but the truth is that all of us have sinned and fall short of His glory. We need a Savior! We must constantly place our faith in God’s goodness, and not our own.
