“This epistle is really the chief part of the New Testament, and is truly the purest gospel. It is worthy not only that every Christian should know it word for word, by heart, but also that he should occupy himself with it every day, as the daily bread of the soul.”
Martin Luther
Romans 13:13-14

“13 Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.”
John Chrysostom
So convinced of the importance of Romans that he had it read aloud to him twice a week that he might soak in its truths.
Martin Luther
Romans 1:17

“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
John Wesley
“At about a quarter before nine, while he was describing the change which God works in the heart through faith in Christ, I felt my heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone, for my salvation; and an assurance was given me that he had taken my sins away, even mine; and saved me from the law of sin and death.”
