Commentator Frederick Godet described the Epistle to the Romans as “the cathedral of the Christian faith.” That imagery has stuck with me as I have been meditating on the message of Romans.  It is truly a cathedral.  Everywhere you look your eye is met with intricacy, beauty and majesty. But I’ve imagined a particular cathedral, one that is also a refuge.  Romans describes a real and present storm of God’s wrath.  It describes a way of escape–justification by faith.  And it describes a life of security from God’s temporal wrath within the gospel cathedral. I invite you to join us in this exposition of Romans with a sense of urgency, as we Run In!:  from under the wrath of God to shelter in the Cathedral of His Grace. Theme
