"GOD'S PERFECT PLAN" 

Submitted by Pastor Stewart

 

 

Paul probably wrote the letter of Romans in about AD 57, towards the end of his third missionary journey, perhaps from Corinth.  This letter has been called the greatest theological document ever written.  In it, Paul outlines what Christians believe, and explains God’s Perfect Plan in bringing sinners back to Him.  It offers Paul’s fullest exposition on the all-important issue of righteousness: How a person can be in the right with God, and how a person can live a God-honoring righteous life.

From Man’s acknowledgement of his fall, he, through the Love of God and the Holy Spirit, has seen The Need for God’s Salvation more than anything else.  Living with God forever, should be the ultimate goal of mankind.  Salvation refers to the act of being saved or protected from harm or destruction; being delivered from the power and penalty of sin (redemption).  The saving of the soul from sin and its consequences, this of course is man’s greatest need.

 

 "...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. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written. The just shall live by faith.."

Romans 1:16-17
