It’s NOT the way it’s supposed to be!

We all have that sense in our day. Something’s missing. Something’s marring and mangling our world. The Apostle Paul in Romans 1-3 calls it by its name—SIN.

Even the biggest skeptics of the Bible or Christianity who would scoff at the term “sin” populate our timelines and newsfeeds with what is “wrong” according to them.

Paul’s throbbing theme in Romans is the Gospel of Jesus Christ and its power to rescue us from sin and reveal God’s Righteousness. Romans 1-3 reveals God’s Righteousness and Our Mutual Trouble, Sin. Getting a strong whiff of ourselves and our sin, shows us our great need for a Savior. There is “no one righteous…not even one” among us.

Reminded of our great need and His great grace can tenderize our hearts as Christ’s Ambassadors wherever God locates us to show and share Jesus with compassion and eagerness.
