Sermons on Romans
Sermon text: Romans 13:11-14 Jesus could return anytime. Believers generally understand this and even accept it as truth. But what are we actually doing about it? God in His great mercy has held back His judgment so that more people can accept His offer of salvation through Jesus Christ. But to a large extent the church is using this grace period for anything but being about the Lord’s business. Time is short. We must act now.
Sermon Text: Romans 16:19 As Paul finishes his letter to the Roman Christians, he warns them of a potential threat. Many scholars believe that this would be false teachers, who would confuse and divide these believers. There are many threats today confronting the modern church. Christians today must heed the same warning and instruction provided by Paul.
God’s wrath is a part of his righteousness. If God did not punish sin, then He would not be truly righteous. The latter part of the first chapter of Romans describes to whom and why this wrath must be applied. And even though these words were written almost 2000 years ago, the actions they describe are as fresh as tonight’s evening news.
