As you read today, pray and ask the Holy Spirit to teach you through this passage.
Read Romans 1, then focus on Romans 1:1-7
- How does Paul introduce himself and what do you learn about him from these verses?
- What do you feel set apart to do? Consider your specific set of gifts, abilities, and talents.
- Why do you think Paul believes that obedience naturally follows genuine faith (also see James 2:14-26)?
Sit for a moment and just think about verse 7. You are loved by God. Just sit and think about how deep God’s love is.
WEEK 1 MEMORY VERSE:
For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
