A Weekend on... the Cross: Romans 1-6 - Part 1: How to get right with God
Ian Garrett, explores Romans 1: 16- 17 through Martin Luther's journey to faith.
“I greatly longed to understand Paul’s Epistle to the Romans and nothing stood in the way but that one expression ‘the righteousness of God’, because I took it to mean that righteousness whereby God is just and deals justly in punishing the unjust. My situation was that, although an impeccable monk, I stood before God as a sinner troubled in conscience. And I had no confidence that my merit would assuage him. Therefore I did not love a just and angry God but rather hated and murmured against him. Yet I clung to dear Paul and had a great yearning to know what he meant.” Martin Luther
