Sept-11-2011 Lesson on Romans 2:1-11....3:21-26

Good News to hear

Just as I said when we started our study in Romans...we will get blessed....our toes will get stepped on...the unsaved are warned.

Where would we be if God hadn't of came to this earth as Jesus and died for us?

***After we had been used and abused by Satan while we lived in this flesh....we would have suffered for all eternity in soul and spirit because of our sinful nature.

Chapter 1 reveals the unrighteousness of man in need of a Saviour and chapter 2 reveals the self-righteousness of man in need of a Saviour

In chapter 2 Paul is showing that God will judge self-righteous and religious people.

Message is pretty simple today...we need forgiveness and God provided a way.........and this lesson helps us to be thankful for that.

This lesson also shows just how dangerous religion can be....meaning..some think they are so good and never sin because they go to church or pay their tithes or have some leadership in their church...they see everybody else's sin but, not their own.

Romans 2:1-5 (KJV)

1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.

2 But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.

3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?

4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;

Why is it dangerous to have a self-righteous attitude?

***Self-righteousness blinds a person's heart into thinking they are bless because they have not received any correction from God...but, God is giving them a chance to repent.

Some may be a religious person, might be a good person, but without Christ, they are lost...that's what Paul was telling the Jews here.

They are blinded....and look what God says about that.

2 But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.

In other words, he says, “We know that the judgment of God is according to reality.”

There are so many folks today, including church members, who live in a world of unreality.

They do not want to hear the truth of the gospel.

“Oh, I do want to study the Bible.” And then when they get into the Word of God, they find what John found in the Book of Revelation when he began to see the judgments of God.

When he first started out, it was thrilling, it was “sweet in his mouth.” But when he ate that little book, it gave him indigestion, it was “bitter in his belly” (Rev. 10:9–10)

3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?

These same two “excuses” that the Jews used in Paul’s day are still heard today:

(1) “I am better than others, so I don’t need Christ”; (2) “God has been good to me and will certainly never condemn me.”

But God’s final judgment will not be according to men’s opinions and evaluations; it will be according to truth of Gods word.

Why are unsaved people ignorant of God’s intention to be kind?

Some think they are their gift to God because God hasn't judged them yet and being blessed by Him.....they go to church...pay their tithes even serve as church leaders...thought that God loved them more than others and they judge others and never see themselves... That's what these Jews thought..but, there is no escape of Gods judgment .

We are not to judge the saved or unsaved...that's not our job....our job is to tell them the truth and let God convict their heart.....

If God doesn't convict peoples heart of their sin ...then they have something to really worry about.

Because God can't save an unrepented heart...because they don't realize their own sin ...therfore their sin remains.

You might remember the story of the blind man in John chapter 9 ..Jesus heal that man of his physical blindness and spiritual blindness.

These same Jews called the Pahirisees over heard a conversation between Jesus and that blind man....and one of the Pharisses ask Jesus.

Joh 9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

Joh 9:40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
