The next doctrine that is covered extensively is the doctrine of sanctification. As believers we are called to live a righteous life, to no longer be living for our sin but to be living for God.
Paul doesn’t hide the fact that there will be a battle involved in this. Chapter 7 covers this struggle extensively, and chapter 8 shows us that it is through living by the Spirit that we overcome the works of the flesh. So we have the doctrine of sin, the doctrine of justification, and the doctrine of sanctification, the order which we often deal with in the Christian life.
There are more doctrines in the book of Romans, but these are the three that deal with the righteousness of God, the theme of the epistle.
