Paul wrote his letters with specific people and churches in mind, not just subject driven. Since the Early Church was young in their faith, his letters were intended to further establish them in the gospel of grace, and in some cases, to correct errors or misunderstandings that came into the Church through false teachers or lack of sound doctrine. We must also remember the huge difference between earning God’s favor by keeping the Law and receiving favor by grace.
As Paul wrote “to all those in Rome who are loved by God,” he took eleven chapters to outline the gospel in detail so there would be no doubt about its foundation and how the gospel should be understood. At the end of these chapters, it is as if Paul cannot hold back the praise that is filling his heart at the moment, and must express his feelings in worship.
“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!” (Romans 11:33).
These early chapters have outlined the depraved state of mankind on the one hand, and on the other, the measureless grace of God that made us His own possession in spite of our condition. This alone is worthy of our abandoned worship and praise.
