#4 THE WRATH OF GOD!(Romans 1:18-20)

– by Larry Dixon

Ruminating on ROMANS! (Some Thoughts on Paul’s Great Epistle) #4 THE WRATH OF GOD!(Romans 1:18-20)

Many of you know that my New Jersey friend Frank and I are reading through God’s Word together (described here). We’re now in the book of Romans and are reading chapter 1 each day this week. Here is something that I noticed in reading this chapter:A few observations on the WRATH of God in this passage —

I. Is being revealed . . .

II. Is against all the godlessness and wickedness of people . . .

III. These people are those who suppress the truth by their wickedness . . .

IV. The clarity of God and His character (vv. 19-20)

V. Creation testifies to God’s eternal power and divine nature (v. 20)

VI. People are without excuse (v. 20)

There is much in the Scriptures about the WRATH of God. In fact, I wrote an article a few years ago entitled “Warning a Wrath-Deserving World” and it may be accessed here.

Could it be that some in our culture need to hear more about the WRATH of God? I’ve had a person yawn in my face when I told him of God’s love. But when I talked about God’s WRATH — and how I deserved that wrath — he didn’t yawn. He listened. Just a thought.
