Pick Up and Read Part 1
Paul wrote to the Romans whom he had never met. Why should they pick up and read his letter? Saul of Tarsus was well known for persecuting the church but Saul is now Paul. They should pick up and read because they knew the man he was. Only one thing can account for his transformation and that's God. Paul calls himself a bond-servant, a slave of the Lord Jesus, no longer a slave of sin. This is where true liberty is.
