These daily online studies are adapted from our Quiet Time Bible Guide. The studies go through the Old and New Testaments in just over two years. The approach taken by our quiet time Bible studies does not include answers. The goal of the study is to help you dig into Scripture for yourself. You can go deeper using a commentary, Bible background guide or Bible handbook.
For more context before you begin studying, read this introduction to the book of Romans.
"I got a raise!"
"My wife's having a baby!"
What is our immediate response to good news? We tell others! We feel we will burst unless we share our joy with those around us.
Paul felt that way about the gospel, the good news about Jesus Christ. As we read these opening verses in his letter to the Romans, we find his excitement is contagious.
Our days and weeks are often filled with bad news. Think of all the good news you can, and praise God for it.
Pray that God will use Romans to give you Paul's attitude toward the gospel and toward those who need its message.
