Scripture Sunday: Romans 1:20


Romans 1:17–3:21—Condemnation. The longest section in today’s reading is on the subject of condemnation. •Cause of condemnation: wicked living in willful rejection of God. •Consequences of condemnation: in summary they are abandoned by God (1:24, 25, 28), and they are sentenced to “tribulation and anguish upon every soul of man that doeth evil” (2:9). •Court in condemnation: the fidelity of the court (“according to truth” [2:2]); the fairness of the court (“render to every man according to his deeds” [2:6] and “there is no respect [prejudice] of persons with God” [2:11]). •Crowd for condemnation: all persons are condemned, both Jews and Gentiles, for “there is none righteous, no, not one” (3:11). –Butler’s Daily Bible Reading

Great Devotional from Adrian Rogers

BIBLE MEDITATION:

“Upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

Any great church is built on these four things that begin with the letter B.

The Book – the inspired, infallible Word of God.

The Blood – the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Birth – the new birth.

The Blessed Hope – the coming again of the Lord Jesus Christ.

God tells us in Hebrews 10:25, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” He wants us to find a Bible-believing church and connect with the people there.

ACTION POINT:

If you’re looking for a church, find out if they take a stand on the Book, the Blood, the Birth, and the Blessed Hope. If they don’t, saturate that place with your absence. Look for one that does.
