Good Morning from Rivers of Joy Baptist Church in Minford, Ohio. Sunday Morning August 16, 200d We9. I am sitting in my office/library. How cool is that

I am still learning how to use this lap top.

Today we are going to start the book of ROMANS. I love this book. We are going to give an overview of the book.



This is going to be a renewing of your mind. This could be a life changing adventure!
  • John Calvin: “If a man understands this book, he has a sure road of understanding of the whole of Scripture.” William Tyndale: “Romans is deep, profound, divine, yet it is in the grasp of all of us.


  • In this book you have Paul giving the essences of the last word of the Christian faith. It says all Paul intends to sum up and say about the gospel of Jesus Christ. This book will guard you against, guard you from heresy

IMPORTANT WORDS IN THE BOOK OF ROMANS:
God (153), Law (72), Christ 65 Sin 48 Lord 43 Faith 40. Romans is about those terms.

So the book of Romans is about God, Law, Christ, Sin, The Lord, Faith.
