Pastor Post - February 7, 2018

This week we will continue in our study of Romans by digging into Romans 2:1-11

Last week, in Romans 1:18-32, Paul was speaking about the Gentile pagan world, and its descent into idolatry and depravity. 

In chapter 2 he turns his attention to religious people who criticize those who behave in these ways, yet do the very same things. Therefore, church-going, Bible-believing Christians like us need to pay very close attention to Romans 2! 

As you read and pray (by all means, this is a text that should cause people like us to examine and pray about our own hearts!!!) over Romans 2:1-11, consider the following: 

  • What is the difference between pointing out that something is wrong (which the Bible says we should do) and having a critical spirit (which we should not have)? 

  • What are some ways in which Bible-believing, church-going Christians like us can be hypocritical? 

  • Last week in 1:18 we saw a present wrath that is being revealed, as God hands people over to the consequences of their own choices. But here in 2:1-11 we see a future wrath? Where do you see that in the text? 

  • Paul says in verses 6-10 that God will judge us according to our works. How does this square with what he says about justification by faith? Hint: Read Ephesians 2:8-10 and James 2. 

On Sunday night, we will enjoy a great time of food and fellowship at the Chili Cook Off. This has become a fun winter event, where we get to have fun and raise money for missions at the same time.
