Are You a Saint?

Introduction: Peter Pett speaking of the Book of Romans states, There is no letter or book in the world to equal the one that we are about to consider, for it is a detailed explanation of the Good News of God, coming from the pen of an inspired writer. The Good News is the power of God that brings salvation for all who believe (Rom 1:16). Reformatted
Christian converts had formed a New Testament church in the capital city of Rome. Paul longed to build them up in the faith, thus, God had him write the book of Romans. He probably wrote it while he was at Corinth, in A.D. 56-57, and sent it to Rome with a godly woman Phebe (16:1-2).
In this book, God is teaching the Gospel to saints rather than preaching it to sinners. The book contains many legal and judicial terms. Paul frequently uses questions to get his readers to think. The theme of Romans is the Righteousness of God. It shows us how God can save guilty sinners, yet be righteous at the same time.
