In medieval times, there was a common saying – “All roads lead to Rome.” In its heyday, Rome was the economic, social, cultural, and political center of civilization. The reach of its empire was unmatched and its cultural significance continues even today.
The Apostle Paul knew if you could reach Rome, you could reach the world and set he his sights on the city. Decades after Jesus’ resurrection, he penned what is perhaps the most prolific letter of the New Testament to its small but growing church.
Paul’s letter to the Romans invites us to understand who we are, our purpose in a messy world, and what it looks like to experience life to its fullest in Jesus.
