If someone were to ask you, "Which do you want first, the good news or the bad news?" what would you say? Typically, many answer with, "the bad news" in hopes that the good news would redeem the bad. The book of Romans begins with the bad news. It continues with a fascinating, systematic presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In Romans, we discover a good news that is rivaled by no other.
John MacArthur wrote:
"It has been said that Romans will delight the greatest logician and captivate the mind of the consummate genius, yet it will bring tears to the humblest soul and refreshment to the simplest mind. It will knock you down and then lift you up. It will strip you naked and then clothe you with eternal elegance."
Let this book hit you, let it break you, let it level you... It is okay, because within its pages you will find "the way and the truth and the life (John 14:6; NIV)" and He will build you up anew.
