Romans: Chapter 1

(Rom 1:1 KJV)  Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,

(Rom 1:2 KJV)  (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)

(Rom 1:3 KJV)  Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

(Rom 1:4 KJV)  And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

(Rom 1:5 KJV)  By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:

(Rom 1:6 KJV)  Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:

(Rom 1:7 KJV)  To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

(Rom 1:8 KJV)  First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

(Rom 1:9 KJV)  For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;

(Rom 1:10 KJV)  Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.

(Rom 1:11 KJV)  For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established;

(Rom 1:12 KJV)  That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.

(Rom 1:13 KJV)  Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.

(Rom 1:14 KJV)  I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.

(Rom 1:15 KJV)  So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.

(Rom 1:16 KJV)  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

(Rom 1:17 KJV)  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

(Rom 1:18 KJV)  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

(Rom 1:19 KJV)  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

(Rom 1:20 KJV)  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

(Rom 1:21 KJV)  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

(Rom 1:22 KJV)  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

(Rom 1:23 KJV)  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

(Rom 1:24 KJV)  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

(Rom 1:25 KJV)  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

(Rom 1:26 KJV)  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

(Rom 1:27 KJV)  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

(Rom 1:28 KJV)  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

(Rom 1:29 KJV)  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

(Rom 1:30 KJV)  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

(Rom 1:31 KJV)  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

(Rom 1:32 KJV)  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

(Rom 1:17 KJV) …. as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

What an important verse? We SHALL live by faith. Where do i get this faith from? Do i get it by blindly hoping and “standing” on a random scripture? Do i get this faith by praying and reading the Bible? Gal_2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and THE LIFE which I NOW LIVE in the flesh I LIVE BY THE FAITH OF THE SON OF GOD, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
It is Christ in me, excercising HIS Faith in me, and because of His faith, I live.

“For therin….” Wherin???? Where do we find the righteousness of God revealed? In the gospel of Christ – in the person of Christ Jesus. Christ in us has been made our righteousness: 1Co 1:30 KJV But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness….. We did not do anything to deserve this. All we had to do was to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. God MADE Jesus Christ to be our righteousness, and this is only revealed in the message of Christ.In the Law, people had to do things to be righteous. In the message of Christ, God has done EVERYTHING so that we are righteous in Him.

The gospel of Christ is a person. Col 1:28 KJV WHOM we preach, ….. The gospel of Christ is the message that Paul preached. And this message “whom” he preached was the power of God. 1 Co 1:24 KJV …. Christ the power of God…… He preached Christ. He preached Christ IN him, the hope of glory.

Here it is mentioned again, “the gospel of His Son”. Jesus Christ appeared to Paul on the road to Damascus, and He personally instructed Paul on what to do. Jesus gave Paul the commission to the gentiles – the non-Jews. This is very important to know because anyone who is not Jewish is a gentile. If you are a gentile, Jesus gave Paul the message for you. This message is found predominantly in Paul’s Epistles or Letters. This gospel Paul mentioned a few times as “my gospel”.

Paul understood that Christ was his very life because Paul no longer lived, but Christ lived in Him and through him. This is why Paul says that he thanked God THROUGH Jesus Christ in him. Paul understood that everuthing he did, was in and through Christ in him. He understood that Christ and him were not two separate beings but one. The two became one flesh.

(Rom 1:7 KJV) To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

This verse is saying that ALL the believers in Rome were called to be saints, not just a specially chosen few as religion has taught. A saint according to Strongs concondance is this: “From ἅγος hagos (an awful thing) compare G53, [H2282]; sacred (physically pure, morally blameless or religious, ceremonially consecrated): – (most) holy (one, thing), saint.”

How can this be true that we are all called to be saints? Through Christ in us! He is sacred, physically pure, morally blameless, consecrated, most holy….. We are all these things by virtue of Him in us. We are one with Him – 1 Cor 5:17

What is the gospel of God? Is it the accounts of Jesus walking the earth, or is it something else?
2Jn 1:9-11 KJV Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. (10) If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: (11) For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
What is the doctrine of Christ?
Paul says in verse 1 that he has been separated to this gospel!!
