Romans 2: Christ Is The Righteousness Of God

Text: Romans 2

Theme: The gospel reveals the righteousness of God:

1. In Condemnation (1:18-3:20)

   B. Of Moral Men (2:1-17)
   C. Of Jews (2:18-29)

The gospel reveals the righteousness of God in the condemnation of the moral man (1-17), and Jew (18-29).  Though he condemns the actions of the pagan, the moral man also deserves God's wrath because 1) he does the same things (1-3), and 2) he sins against the knowledge of God in his conscience (14-16; cf. 1:32).  Though he has the ten commandments from God, the Jew, too, deserves God's wrath for failing to keep them (17-29).  Both the morally upright man and the Jew deserve God's wrath for sinning against the knowledge of God.

The Gospel

Have you heard Christ died for our sins, and God raised Him from the dead? Did you know God saves you from hell and gives you eternal life through faith in this finished work alone, not your merits (Jn. 3:16; 1 Cor. 15:1-3; Eph. 2:8-10; 2 Thess. 1:8-9)? This is so man cannot boast, and God alone gets the glory (Eph. 2:8-9).


The grand purpose of creation is to bring glory and pleasure to God in Christ (Eph. 1:1-10; Rev. 4:11). The gospel of Christ's death and resurrection for our sins, achieves this goal by magnifying God's grace and mercy towards undeserving sinners. The purpose of faithguard, is to glorify God, by defending and confirming the gospel of Jesus Christ.
