An Opportunity to Study the Book of Romans
It doesn’t really matter whether your adventure is a trip across the United States or around a country like Norway or even in Africa or the Far East, you will want to have a very complete guidebook. You will need to study it as you plan your journey in order to know what to take, where to go, and what you need to understand before you leave. You will also, no doubt, want to refer to it day by day as you travel, so that you will not miss out on anything that you might want to see, do or experience. A good travel guide will also help you know what to avoid and give you handy tips for your safety, health, and general welfare.
It has been said that there is one book in the New Testament that is very much like an extraordinary guide book for the adventure of life, specifically your “journey of faith”. It could be called both a “Survival Manual” and “The Way to Success”. In this book, which is actually a letter written by Paul to the new believers in Rome, you can explore not only what God invites us to believe but also how He wants us to behave as we go through life.
You are invited to join us as we embark on a 14 week study of this guidebook for life, called Romans. While this letter was written many centuries ago, the foundation of our beliefs and the instructions for our behavior are totally relevant for us today. I pray that as you study Romans, the truths that God will reveal to you will help you experience this journey of life with understanding, clarity, purpose and delight.
