Building Blocks of Faith

  • Feb 2021 Issue
Monthly Issues

When I first began to follow Christ, I loved reading the Gospels. I wasn’t nearly as enthusiastic about the epistles. Despite this, I decided to spend several months reading nothing but the book of Romans. My opinion changed. So did my life. This month we study Paul’s letter to the believers in Rome. As you study this book, you will discover:

  • The nature and importance of the gospel
  • The difference between law and grace
  • The secret to holy living

It is my prayer that God will use this book to transform your life as much as it has changed mine.

Your devotional writer,
