Romans 1:16-17  “I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.  For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.””

Devotional thought:  Many believe, as I do, that these verses are a summary of the overall theme of Paul’s letter to the Romans.  Why would this be true?  What do these verses mean to you…for your faith?
