Book of Romans Chapter One.
The Gospel is not the gospel of men, but the gospel of God. By it, the revealed truth of God's love is manifested and judgment on sin is sure and the certain defeat of death and the devil. There is not hing in time or eternity more certain than what Jesus Christ accomplished on the Cross. The cross is ground zero for humanity and eternity. God the Father made redemption through the blood of His only Begotten Son the foundation by which we stand reconciled unto HIM.
The apostle Paul demonstrates the perfection of the Gospel with three essentials throughout the book of Romans. These Three Essentials Form The Basis of Our Study Of Romans:
Implicitly The Gospel - 1:16 - Our Surety
Simplicity Of The Gospel - 5:8 - Our Security
Complicity Of The Gospel - 10:13 - Our Serenity
The apostle Paul was an enemy of the gospel; at enmity with God, and is now an evident trophy of the perfection and power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
