Righteous Rage - Part 2
Romans 1:18-32

THEME: The wrath of God is the most despised and downplayed attribute of God. We like to talk about and play up the nice attributes of God like His love, grace, mercy, faithfulness, and goodness, but for some reason we have a problem with His wrath. What’s more, we realize God’s wrath is unfashionable in today’s culture so we avoid bringing it up in conversation. We treat it like Christianity’s dark ugly secret. However, we must realize that there are more references in the Bible to God’s anger and fury than His love and tenderness. This passage in Romans is the classical biblical description of God’s wrath. No other passage in God’s Word provides a clearer understanding of what is without question the most sobering, terrifying attribute of God. In order to impress on his readers why it is so urgent to preach the gospel, Paul explained THREE PARTICULARS of God’s righteous rage against man’s unrighteous rebellion against Him.


2. THE REASON FOR GOD’S RAGE (vv. 21-23)

3. THE RESULT OF GOD’S RAGE (vv. 24-32)

Thank God for not abandoning you to your sinful desires but mercifully granting you repentance and faith in Christ. Ask Him to help you show grace and compassion to those who are still trapped in a sinful lifestyle. Ask Him to use you and the other members of our church to be salt and light in a culture that has been abandoned by God (i.e., handing out lifejackets on the Titanic).
