The Apostle Paul wrote Romans at approximately 57 A.D., from Corinth, as he was preparing for his visit to Jerusalem. After taking a collection to Jerusalem for the poor Christians there, he planned to visit Rome on his way to Spain. The key verse in his letter to the Romans was, "Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ" (5:1).
Jeremiah urged God's people to turn from their sins and back to God. Those who trust in the Lord will have abundant strength, not only for their own needs, but also for the needs of others. Jeremiah was called by God to be a prophet to Judah, and he served God and remained faithful to Him for 40 years. During that time, Jeremiah was ignored, rejected and persecuted by the people. Still, he remained faithful to God.
“You aren’t saved by being good,” they say, “so you might as well be bad. Do what you like; be free.” But these very teachers who offer this “freedom” from law are themselves slaves to sin and destruction. For a man is a slave to whatever controls him.. ~2 Peter 2:19 TLB
