|1: The Character of God||Romans 1:18-20, 2:1-16, 3:22-24, Isaiah 43:6-7||God is the just and gracious Creator of all things.||Realize that we belong to Him, are accountable to Him, and are created to glorify Him.|
|2: The Sinfulness of Man||Romans 1:21-25, 3:9-20, 3:23, 6:23||We are each created by God, but we are all corrupted by sin.||Admit areas of rebellion, be honest with God about sin, and turn from it.|
|3: The Sufficiency of Christ||Romans 3:21-26, 4:25, 5:6-10, 5:18, 8:1-4||Jesus Christ alone is able to remove our sin and reconcile us to God through His death. He alone satisfies the wrath of God for our sins.||Recognize that we are helpless to be reconciled with God apart from Jesus Christ.|
|4: The Necessity of Faith||Romans 1:17, 3:20-31, 4:22-25, 6:11-14, 8:10-11, 10:9-13||We are reconciled to God only through faith in Jesus. There is nothing we can do to become right with God.||Faith that leads to salvation involves turning from sin and self-sufficiency. We turn to Jesus and trust in Him as Lord, confess Him as Lord and Savior.|
