There is one book of the Bible that you should know more than the rest.
Martin Luther said you should learn it by heart:
No, it is not John or Matthew.
John Calvin said it is the key to hidden treasures:
No, it is not Daniel or Revelation.
Arno Gaebelein said it should be studied repeatedly:
No, it is not Psalms or Proverbs.
Everyone should start their study of the Bible with this book.
No, it is not Genesis or Isaiah.
It is responsible for saving more people in history than any other. Do you know yet which one it is?
If you study just one book of the Bible, let it be this one…
Romans is the purest gospel, the foundation for salvation, the foothold of God’s righteousness by faith, the fountainhead of the dispensation of grace, and the beginning of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans is the revelation of the finished work of Jesus Christ and his offer of eternal life to all that believe.
Romans establishes the believer on Paul’s gospel (the purest gospel) and the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery (Romans 16:25).
If you are looking for where to start, or somewhere to revisit, Romans is the answer. Start with the first eight chapters. Rinse and repeat.
Praise God for it!
“To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.” – Romans 16:27
