Romans 1:1-17

It is still not final whether I am really gonna use this blog for the journey or my profile over at YouVersion where I have posted today’s reflection on Romans 1:1-17:

Verse 16 is a reminder that God’s covenant is first and foremost with God’s chosen people of Israel. Us Goyim, especially the Roman sort, come as a secondary addition to God’s first love. God’s one and only covenant is extended to include even us.

Verse 17 is a reference to Habakkuk 2:4 and helped shape the Reformation concept of sola fide.
