TABLE OF CONTENTS
We all need salvation–but how does one get it? Is it based on works or faith alone? Moved by the Holy Spirit, Paul answers these questions and more as he pens his letter to the church in Rome.
Outlining the road to salvation, Paul shows us the purpose of man and the mystery revealed through Jesus Christ.
Romans teaches us that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. There is not one that is righteous apart from our Lord. There’s not one that seeketh God; there’s not one that doeth good. For it is God who seeks and who saves, and it’s only through Him that we find righteousness and peace.
Paul sets the record straight for all who seek to be saved through their own righteousness, by reminding us that we are weak through the flesh.
Every action has a consequence, and the consequence for sin is death. Of course we all die a physical death, we’ve seen it in both the just and the unjust, but Paul warns us about eternal separation from God, or what is known as a spiritual death.
Paul brings good news to both the Jews and the Gentiles as he explains the free gift of salvation by grace through Jesus Christ our Lord. We see how many of God’s chosen people have been removed like branches broken off of a tree, and with a dose of humility, he reminds us to remain strong in the faith lest we too should be removed from that tree.
He teaches us to trust in God, the One who demonstrated His love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us, (Romans 5:8) that through His death we may have life.
You are loved by an almighty God,

You do not need anything else for this study other than a Bible and a pen!
In addition to the study guide, I’ve created a journal (available now at Amazon) for the study. This one is a Bible-study/journal combination with thought provoking questions, quotes from some of our favorite Bible commentators, space to jot down your thoughts, and whimsical images that help make your study time creative. In it you’ll find everything you need to complete the study.
FAQ: What’s the difference between the journal and the FREE study guide?
The journal is not only beautifully designed, it also has everything in one place so that you don’t have to download and print the questions. It also has some notations to help you understand the text. It’s designed to be a keepsake in which you can journal, and then tuck away for future reference.
It’s ideal for group study, because members can take their booklets home, answer the questions, color in the pages if they like, and bring them back each week to share their thoughts.
The journal is available now on Amazon. I’ve also provided some sample pages below so you can take a peek inside. (This post contains affiliate links)
(Please note: The journal is an optional addition. You do not require it to take part in this study, and will definitely enjoy the free resources I provide)
