For I have a great sense of obligation to people in our culture and to people in other cultures, a to the educated and uneducated alike.
So I am eager to come to you in Rome, too, to preach God's Good News.
For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes -- Jews first and also Gentiles.
This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, "It is through faith that a righteous person has life." b
