Leviticus 21:1-24; Psalms 124:1-127:5; Mark 7:24-8:10

The gospel of God, (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,) Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 1:1-3

Romans is a systematic and glorious unfolding of the gospel and right here at the beginning we have its salient features. Firstly, the source of the gospel is God. The gospel was not the invention of man but flows from the heart of deity. Secondly, it had been predicted and promised in the Old Testament. The prophets spoke of it over the centuries. Thirdly, it centres upon the Lord Jesus. He is the heart of the Gospel message and it is through Him that the good news came to earth for our salvation. —Paul Young

Good News, Good News, Christ died for me.
Good News, Good News, If I believe.
Good News, Good News, I’m saved eternally. —Author Unknown

The One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity. Isaiah 57:15

The place, which is called Calvary. Luke 23:33, KJV

Eternity and Calvary are two profound subjects. Together they are central to the theme of every Gospel message. The idea of Calvary arose in eternity, in the heart of God. Mankind will be divided into two classes in eternity because of Calvary. What you do with the Man of Calvary now determines where you will spend eternity. For the believer, eternity will be spent with the Man of Calvary. For those who reject the love of Calvary, a lost eternity awaits. —Milton Haack

I am redeemed, O praise the Lord; My soul from bondage free,
Has found at last a resting place, In Him who died for me.
—Fanny J. Crosby
