Romans 1:15-18

So, I am ready to preach the gospel to you who are atRome also. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, ‘The just shall live by faith.

As one burdened for all men, Paul was prepared, in fact eager, to proclaim the Gospel to those in Rome, for he knew without question that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the power to Salvation to all who believe. By faith in Christ – only by faith and only in Christ – do we have access to God’s own righteousness conferred in place of our sin. Only by faith in Christ, for ‘the just shall live by faith.”
