But if our unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? The God who inflicts wrath is not unrighteous, is He? (I am speaking in human terms.)” (Romans 3:5)
Tell someone that without knowing Jesus they are going to hell and you will see how this very verse is denied. Yet, if the one’s who are in rebellion against the Lord still want to be as God in heaven, what would heaven be like? In a very simple way, we can understand that the righteousness of God must be true if there is to be sanity in eternity. God is righteous and just.Lord, I get caught up in the earthy arguments that have elements of truth, but always have that little bit of untruth that makes the whole thing nonsense. Help me to see that only You are righteous and just and that Your law is good. Help me to understand that Christ died for a reason and that listening to You provides the only hope for a sinful humanity.
Lord Jesus, You paid the price for sin for a reason. Help me to understand that apart from You there is no hope and that in You, there is nothing but hope. Guide me today to be loving, but committed to the truth that in You alone is there a hope and a future. Guide my lips to speak boldly of the saving Gospel You have made possible through grace. Amen.
