God’s Judgment on the Judgmental
Series: Romans
In Romans 2, Paul continues to lay out the “bad news” for us.  It doesn’t matter who we are, we are all staring God’s judgment in the face.  Three facts about God’s judgment show up in our passage – God’s Judgment is Inescapable, God's Judgment is Righteous, and God's Judgment is Impartial.
 
None of us is good enough to escape God’s judgment on our own – we must believe in Jesus, trusting God for His mercy and grace.

    Speed Limits & Stop Signs
    Series: Romans
    To fully appreciate the "Good News" that God has for us, Paul takes the remainder of Romans 1 to give us the "Bad News."  Paul begins this section of his letter by showing us that God’s wrath against sin is justified.  He goes on with the bulk of the passage to show us that people’s suppression of the truth has consequences, and he concludes with a warning against approving of unrighteousness. With some very vivid warnings, this passage encourages us to acknowledge God and His rightful place in our lives, giving Him the honor & thanks He deserves.

    Building on a Firm Foundation
    Series: Romans
    As the Apostle Paul writes this letter to the churches in Rome, he repeatedly reveals that his primary focus is the Gospel – the Good News regarding Jesus Christ.  The first 7 verses of Romans serve as the addresses on Paul’s envelope. But, he also lays out the basics of what he will spend the rest of the letter detailing.
     
    The 3 primary movements of our passage begin with the Messenger & His Message, followed by the Mission & the Mission Field, and throughout it all, Paul makes sure the focus is on the Master.
     
    God’s Good News is that we can receive grace and peace as we put our faith in Jesus Christ.

    Graveyard Shift
    Series: (All)
    Some  Psalms talk about God being our help from various problems that surround us.  But what do we do when the problem is not around us but is IN us?  Times when we are “in the depths” (doubts, besetting sin, spiritual dryness, feeling distant from God, etc.)?  Psalm 130 assures us that God is our deliverer in these times as well!
     
    When a shadow is over your soul, there is hope.

    A Tale of Two Sisters
    Series: Mother's Day
    Luke’s Gospel tells of a time when Jesus visited two sisters, Mary & Martha.  The passage serves as a lesson in priorities.  From the start we see that we have a choice as to how we will spend time with Jesus.  Secondly, serving Christ is a good thing, but, serving Christ with the wrong focus leads to frustration.  Finally, Jesus gently suggests that personal time with the Lord should be our priority.  
     
    In it all, we need to be sure we focus on what’s important, not just what’s immediate - make personal time with the Lord your priority.

    Stay in Your Lane & Follow Jesus
    Series: John
    With the closing verses of the Gospel of John, Jesus reminds Peter that no matter what else happens in life, his goal should be to follow the Lord.  We can trust Christ for our future - We should follow Christ without comparing ourselves to others - We can trust that Christ is coming back - and We can trust the reliability of God's Word.
     
    We can trust and follow the Lord in everything, even when we don't understand it all.

    Dealing with Doubt
    Series: John
    Jesus appears again to His disciples, including Thomas, who was absent on the previous occasion.  Understandably, Thomas was skeptical about Jesus' resurrection.  But, upon seeing Jesus, he believed. This passage helps us see how we can deal with our doubt.  Don’t discourage doubt – encourage evaluation of the evidence – and respond to the rationality of the Christian faith.
     
    Evaluating the evidence will show you the rationality of the Christian faith.
