Recite Romans 2:1-8

So many times over these last few weeks, situations, people and the Lord have brought passages in Romans to my mind. It’s a privilege to memorize His Word. It is life to me. It is bread. It is spiritual food.

Today, I’m going to vlog about Romans 2:1-8. I’m changing my format a bit. I’m not going to worry about time and just talk to you like you were in my living room, sharing a cup of hot java. I’m not even going to change into my grown-up clothes. (Although I do have them and wear them when I speak in public.) Today, I have my dad’s old Grumpy shirt on. I’m just going to pretend when I stare into Siri’s face that it is your face, friend. (In my last vlog, I still had on my PJ’s and just put a shirt over it. So no more of that pretending:)

I’m going to share with you what I’ve learned, what I’m learning and what I hope to learn. So grab a cup of coffee, prop up your feet, and open your Bible to Romans 2.

Here’s my outline:

I. PRACTICE SAME THINGS VS. 1-3

PRINCIPLE-MAN LOOKS AT THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE, BUT GOD LOOKS AT THE HEART.

Application-Would you do a heart check-up with God?

II. PRESUME ON KINDNESS V. 4

PRINCIPLE-GOD’S KINDNESS TOWARD US SHOULD LEAD US TO OUR KNEES.

Application-Would you ask God to show you your sin? Would you look for a Bible study–not just a book study about the Bible, but a study that covers a book of the Bible?

III. PERSEVERE IN GOOD OR EVIL VS. 5-8

PRINCIPLE-GOD’S PERFECT JUDGMENT WILL COME

Application-Have you trusted Christ and His death alone for your salvation? If you’ve failed in one point of obeying the law, you’re guilty of all of it, according to James. Will you worship God in awesome fear, knowing that it is wise to do so?

AIM–ASK THE LORD TO EXAMINE YOUR HEART, AND FALL ON YOUR KNEES IN AWESOME FEAR, AND THANKFULNESS.

SUBJECT SENTENCE–GOD’S PERFECT JUDGMENT ON EVIL-DOERS AND KINDNESS TO RIGHTEOUS IS SURE.
