Are you ashamed of the gospel? Having expressed his desire to minister to the church at Rome, Paul continues in his opening chapter to state the thesis that he will unpack and apply through the rest of his epistle.

As you celebrate the resurrection of the Lord, consider the truth of His claim for yourself.
