Romans 1:1-7

Paul, a servant[a] of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning his Son, who was descended from David[b] according to the flesh and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations, including you who are called to belong to Jesus Christ,

To all those in Rome who are loved by God and called to be saints:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

One response to “Romans 1:1-7

  1. Christ’s earthly line shows He is of the Kings of Israel and that God kept His promise to David. But His power, His Deity, is through God and the ministry of the Spirit who powered Him to resurrection over death and Sin.

    We, as saints, are called to His salvation and victory. It is not of us, but His calling and kindness on us.
