Today we enter into a new section of the Bible. We are starting on Paul’s letter to the Romans, sometimes abbreviated to just Romans. Paul wrote to churches with whom he had a relationship. Many of these letters will be pastoral in nature. At times they will be direct and demanding. The beauty of these books or letters for me is that we get insight into the problems Christians faced in Paul’s time. I am often relieved (or maybe more stressed) that many of our problems look similar today.
Our reading for today is Romans 1-3. What areas jump out to you?
