I am not at all modest or embarrassed about the good news of Christ, I make no apologies. The powerful rescuing act of God becomes evident in everyone who believes. This salvation which was first declared to the Jews is now extended to the Greeks on equal terms. The secret of the Gospel is this: God did it right in Christ; the righteousness of God means that what happened in Christ, happened to us. His faith ignites ours. He is convinced about mankind and now persuades us to believe what he knows to be true about us. The prophets wrote in advance about this life of righteousness which would be based on faith and not on personal performance. Righteousness by faith is your life!
Romans 1:15-17, Mirror Translation
