Top Ten Verses in Paul's Letter to the RomansThis is my favourite book of the Bible not including the Gospels. The Gospels are what Christianity is all about, so it seems obvious to me to study those the most. But Paul's writings are definitely beneficial as well. I believe Paul's teachings are, most of the time, God speaking through him. So, together to the point, what is your favourite verse in Romans?
NOTE: I am using the English Standard Version (ESV) translation.
The Top Ten
One of my favourite verses in the whole Bible. So incredibly encouraging. We all must remember when going through difficult times, that Jesus is working in us, things will get better, and all the trials of life will turn to gold! It reminds me of what Lauren Diagle sings in O' Lord, "You'll take all that is wrong and make it right! " It's such good stuff!
Yes, there are two verses here, I've been trying to keep them limited to one. But this one is so good, I had to add it anyways. It also was too long to have the whole thing on here, so I put etc. to shorten it.
It's just another time you get a glimpse at Jesus' love for us. I mean, it is Paul's view, but I would trust Paul with my life.
Very simple way to show how loving God is to us. Even when we were hating Him and disobeying Him, he loved us so much to die for us! Now that's what I call true love! Thank you Jesus!
I really like the word "free" in this verse. It really emphasizes that God has given you His love without you having to do anything! I also like the way Paul just calls out sin, saying sin leads to death. This verse has a very good balance of love and discipline.
Yes, it's another one with two verses. And again, I had to put this one in just because how much I love it. He's putting the fact of us having to quit sinning, so plainly. How can we who have died to sin still live in it? We can't, of course. Thanks for the simplicity of some of these verses Lord!
Great verse, that shows how easy it actually is to inherit the Kingdom of God, but that's only because you're getting help from Jesus. Confess He's Lord and believe Jesus rose from the dead!
A great example of how we should be treating one another. If my brother gives me a 100$, then I'll just give him 200$ in return! And the term "brotherly affection" is amazing, we must love everyone as if they were our brothers!
I see this verse as telling us to put ourselves in others shoes, if one of our fellow follower of Christ is going through pain, we must have sympathy for them, and come along side them in all their trials! We must be there for one another! Each and everyone of us needs others to help us! Don't just sit back and watch others go through trials without giving any encouragement or help. Let's all try and help one another, even if it means more pain. We're all in this together!
The evilness of this world won't go away by itself, and you can't drive it out with more sin or anger. The only way to drive out evil is to do good! We have the head knowledge, so why don't we do what we know to be good and true? We must live our lives as Jesus did. Perfect.
P.S. Do no set yourself up for failure though. I've done it too many times.
I see this verse as quite dangerous. If you take it too literally, you could just start spinning like crazy and say that it isn't you. I see this verse as Paul saying to us, don't be so hard on yourselves, if you truly don't want to do the sin, then it isn't you, it's your flesh. But again, don't take it too literally.
