The apostle Paul travel the known world of his day preaching the gospel. On his journey, Paul wrote letters or epistles to different churches. He wrote to the church in Rome, saying he longed to be with them. Little did he know that he would journey to Rome, but as a prisoner. In all his letters, Paul, as he said, set for the defense of the gospel. He explained to the Romans what the gospel was and then talked about the immorality that was going on there. He also talked about the cost of it, which is death in hell. The book of Romans is about the law and those who transgress. The law and commandments of God haven’t disappeared. We stand in Christ upon the law. If we sin, we fall under the consequences of the law. Which is our death, both physically and spiritually. For the wages of sin is death.(Romans 3:10). Thank God we can ask for forgiveness and recieve it through the shed blood of Jesus. But Paul said something interesting, through all the stonings, imprisonments and all the other troubles that chased him. He said, I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to the Jew first and also to the Greek. (Romans 1).
