Romans 1 ~ “the obviously bad”. Gentiles or the Rebellious
Romans 2 ~ “the apparently good”. Jews or the Religious
Conclusion of Romans 1 & 2: WE’RE ALL STUCK.
“From criminals to clergy we’re all unworthy.”
How GOOD must you be for God to consider you RIGHTEOUS? (Romans 3:19-25)
How can God justly declare us RIGHTEOUS when we’re NOT? (Romans 3:25)
Jesus became my substitute.
But how could ONE MAN’S DEATH cover SO MANY SINS? (2 Corinthians 5:21)
Jesus’ blood was divine and His sacrifice was perfect.
His sacrifice is applied to my debt by faith.
- Is there someone I can share the “dirty plate analogy” with?
- I need Jesus to “clean my plate” by placing my faith in Him for the new righteousness that comes from God.
- Spend some more time processing Romans 1-3.
- Renew my commitment to practice Pi2 (see below) so I am better positioned to be used of God to share the gospel.
