Chapter Summaries of Romans
1 Paul, to the saints in Rome. I am eager to preach the gospel to you. The unrighteous have no excuse. God gave them up to their lusts.
2 In judging you condemn yourself. The doers of the law will be justified. Do you boast in the law but break it? A Jew is one inwardly.
3 The Jews were given the oracles of God. But no one is justified by the law. All have sinned and are justified through faith in Jesus.
4 Abraham was counted righteous by faith before he was circumcised. He is the father of all who believe. The promise depends on faith.
5 Therefore we rejoice in hope. While we were sinners, Christ died for us. As sin came through one man, so grace abounds through Christ.
6 We were baptised into Christ's death. So consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God. Offer yourselves to God for righteousness.
7 You have died to the law. Is the law sin? No, sin produced death in me. I do not do what I want to do. My flesh serves the law of sin.
8 The law of the Spirit has set you free. We are children of God and co-heirs with Christ. Nothing can separate us from the love of God.
9 I grieve for my kinsmen. But not all Israel are Israel. God has mercy on whom he wills. Israel did not pursue righteousness by faith.
10 Everyone who calls on the Lord will be saved. How will they hear if no one preaches? Moses says of Israel, "I will make you jealous."
11 Even now there is a remnant of Israel. You Gentiles have been grafted into the tree. All Israel will be saved. Glory to God forever!
12 Present your bodies as a living sacrifice to God. We are one body in Christ. Love one another as brothers. Overcome evil with good.
13 Submit to authorities. Pay taxes to those due taxes. Owe nothing except love, which fulfils the law. Clothe yourselves with Christ.
14 Accept those who are weak in faith. Everything is clean but it is wrong to cause anyone to stumble. Whatever is not of faith is sin.
15 Each of us should build up our neighbours. Christ confirmed the promises given to the patriarchs. I hope to see you as I go to Spain.
I summarised all 1,189 chapters of the Bible on Twitter - one tweet per chapter, one chapter per day for over three years.
These are the summaries of the book of Romans.
They are written to help you understand and remember what's going on in the chapter, but they're no substitute for reading the Bible for yourself.
All the summaries in a paperback book or on Kindle.
