God’s Good News: Lesson 1 Part 1

  1. READ THESE VERSES IN YOUR BIBLE: Romans 1:1-18
  2. READ TEACHING ABOUT THE VERSES

God teaches us His Own Gospel (chapter 1 verse 1 to 15)
What a great blessing! God has written down His message for us! God had Paul write a letter to tell us God’s gospel. In this letter to Christians in Rome, God explains His message of good news. I am so glad God has told us His gospel. We do not have to guess. We can know what His message is.

This good news was promised before Jesus was born. The prophets like Isaiah told men that God would send His Son to be a Savior (Isaiah 9:6, 49:6, 53:12). Here are a few examples. God said when Christ would come (Daniel 9), where He would be born (Micah 5:2), what He would do (Genesis 3:15, Zechariah 9:9, Isaiah 53), how He would die (Psalm 22, Psalm 69, Isaiah 50:6), and why He would die (Isaiah 53). Only God could tell these things hundreds of years ahead of time! So we can know this is God’s message!

We also know Jesus is God’s Son because God raised Him from the dead! Now God wants people to hear His message about the Lord Jesus Christ. He wants you and I to know what Christ did and what God wants us to do. Then he wants us to tell others His gospel.

That is what Paul did. He served God by telling people God’s message. He had a burning desire to preach the good news of Christ to the nations of the world. He was ready to bring that gospel to the people in Rome too. They needed to hear it! Why?
