  2. CHRIST IS GOD'S SON - "Declared to be the Son of God with power…by the resurrection" (Romans 1:4).
  3. THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED OF GOD - "the gospel of God which He had promised afore by His prophets in the Holy Scriptures" (Romans 1:1,2; II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20)
  4. WE ARE ALL SINNERS - "There is none righteous, no, not one" (Romans 3:10). "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).
  5. THE GOSPEL ("Good News") IS THAT GOD LOVES US ANYWAY AND WILL SAVE US - "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:  for it is the power of God unto salvation" (Romans 1:16). "Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus" (Romans 3:24; Romans 5:6-10).
  6. GOD WANTS US TO BELIEVE IN HIS SON - "God declared His righteousness for the remission of sins…that He might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus" (Romans 3:25,26; John 8:24).
  7. GOD WANTS US TO REPENT OF OUR SINS - "The goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance" (Romans 2:4; Acts 17:31).

  10. GOD WANTS US TO LIVE ACCORDING TO CHRIST'S WILL - "Yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God" (Romans 6:13; Romans 12:1,2).
  11. GOD WANTS US TO FIND OUR PLACE IN THE BODY OF CHRIST (church) - "As we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:  so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another" (Romans 12:4-5; Ephesians 1:22-23; Ephesians 5:23).
  12. GOD WANTS US TO BE HAPPY IN HIS LOVE IN CHRIST - "If God be for us, who can be against us" (Romans 8:31).  Nothing can separate us "from the Love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 8:35-39).
  13. I'M SURE WE WOULD ALL DESIRE WHAT GOD WANTS TO GIVE US - "Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness" (Romans 6:18).  "The sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us" (Romans 8:18).
