TODAY’S STUDY - Romans 1:  Believers in Christ are Neither Ungodly Nor Unrighteous 

 
THIRD ROMANS PASSAGE Romans, Chapter 1, Verses 16 to 18
 

ROM 1:16a
 FOR I am not ashamed of the gospel (of God)… 
 
JOH 14:6
(The Lord) Jesus (Christ) said to him (the doubting one, Thomas), “I am the way (to salvation), and (I am) the truth (of the Word of God), and (I am) the (Zoe) life (the resurrection life…the eternal life); no one comes to (God) the Father but through (believing in) Me (faith alone in Christ alone as the ticket to eternal life).
 
GAL 2:21
“I (Paul) do not nullify the grace of God (for providing salvation), for if (for the sake of argument we say) righteousness comes through (following the Mosaic) the Law, then Christ died needlessly.” 
 
THIRD ROMANS PASSAGE Romans, Chapter 1, Verses 16 to 18

 
ROM 1:16b
 FOR the gospel of God is the power of God the Father for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first (chronologically), and also to the Greek. 
 
THIRD ROMANS PASSAGE Romans, Chapter 1, Verses 16 to 18

ROM 1:17
FOR in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ the righteousness of God the Father is revealed (negating self-righteousness), from faith in the Lord for salvation to faith in the Lord for all things; as it is written, “BUT THE (one who wants to be a) RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH (by placing his confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation).” 
 
THIRD ROMANS PASSAGE Romans, Chapter 1, Verses 16 to 18
 

 
ROM 1:18
FOR the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and (against all) unrighteousness of men (who are unbelievers) who suppress the truth (of the gospel) in unrighteousness. 
 
REV 12:9
And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. 
 
1CO 1:18
For the word of the Cross is foolishness to those who are perishing (unbelievers), but to us who are being saved (believers in Christ) it is the power of God. 
 
1CO 1:19 
For it is written, “I WILL DESTROY THE WISDOM OF THE WISE, AND THE CLEVERNESS OF THE CLEVER I WILL SET ASIDE.” 
 
1CO 1:20 
Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 
 
1CO 1:21 
For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the (gospel) message preached to save those who believe.
 
1CO 1:22 
For indeed (unbelieving) Jews ask for signs and (unbelieving) Greeks (like Aristotle allegedly) search for wisdom…
 
1CO 1:23 
…but we preach Christ crucified (for salvation…the true gospel), to Jews a stumbling block and to (the) Gentiles (unbelievers) foolishness… 
 
1CO 1:24 
…but to those who are the called (those invited to the privilege of salvation because of their faith in Christ), both Jews and Greeks (whosoever), (the Lord Jesus) Christ (is) the power of God and the wisdom of God. 
 
1CO 1:25 
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 
 
1CO 1:26 
For consider your calling, brethren (Corinthian believers in Christ), that there were not many wise (among you) according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble (you’re a bunch of mutts!)…
 
1CO 1:27 
…but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong…
 
1CO 1:28 
…and (God has chosen) the base things of the world and the despised (things of the world) God has chosen, (God has chosen) the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are… 
 
1CO 1:29 
…so that no man may (have a reason to) boast before God 
 
1CO 1:30 
But by His doing you are in (union with) Christ Jesus, who became to us (believers in Christ) wisdom from God, and (which became) righteousness and (which became) sanctification, and (which became) redemption… 
 
1CO 1:31 
…so that, just as it is written, “LET HIM WHO BOASTS, BOAST IN THE LORD.” 
 
1TI 4:1
But (God) the (Holy) Spirit explicitly says that in later times (in every generation) some (believers in Christ) will fall away from the faith, paying attention (instead) to deceitful spirits and (paying attention to the) doctrines of demons… 
 
1TI 4:2 
…(passed on) by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience (perverted in their sense of what is right and what is wrong) as (if they were seared) with a branding iron… 
 
THIRD ROMANS PASSAGE Romans, Chapter 1, Verses 16 to 18
 
ROM 1:18
FOR the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and (against all) unrighteousness of men (who are unbelievers) who suppress the truth (of the gospel) in unrighteousness. 
 
UNGODLINESS
A lack of reverence toward God’s Person…having no interest in a relationship with Him…reversing the proper relationship with one’s Creator…instead of reverence 
toward God, having reverence toward idols (including self). 
 
UNRIGHTEOUSNESS

Not possessing righteousness…wicked.  Doing evil directed to self, to mankind, and to God…unbridled conduct.  To miss the mark of God’s standards…to sin…to fail in a duty to God…lawlessness…trespass… transgression…iniquity…to fall short to step out of the appointed way. 
 
GAL 5:19
Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality…
 
GAL 5:20 
…idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions… 
 
GAL 5:21 
…envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 
 
GAL 5:22 
But the fruit of (God) the (Holy) Spirit is love, joy, peace (toward self), patience, kindness, goodness (toward others), faithfulness…
 
GAL 5:23 
…gentleness, self-control (toward God); against such things there is no law. 
 
GAL 5:24 
Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 
 
GAL 5:25 
If (1) we (believers in Christ) live by the Spirit (and we do), let us also walk (have a lifestyle led) by the Spirit. 
 
EPH 4:1-3
…walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, // with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love,//being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 
 
2CO 5:17
Therefore if (1) anyone is in (union with) Christ (and all believers are), he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 
 
ROM 7:19
For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. 
 
ROM 7:20 
But if I am doing the very thing I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but (the dead) sin (nature) which (in)dwells in me (is the one doing it). 
 
ROM 7:21 
I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good. 
 
ROM 7:21 
I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good. 
 
ROM 7:22 
For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man… 
 
ROM 7:23 
…but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members. 
 
ROM 7:24 
Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? 
 
ROM 7:25 
Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! 
 
ROM 8:1
Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in (union with) Christ Jesus. 
 
ROM 8:2 
For the law of (God) the (Holy) Spirit of (the Zoe) life in (union with) Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of (the) sin and of (spiritual) death. 
 
ROM 8:3 
For what the (Mosaic) Law could not do (provide salvation), weak as it was through the flesh, God (the Father) did: sending His own Son (the Lord Jesus Christ) in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh (in Christ’s true humanity)… 
 
ROM 8:4 
…so that the requirement of the (Mosaic) Law (righteousness) might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 
 
ROM 8:5 
For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 
 
ROM 8:6 
For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace… 
 
ROM 8:7 
…because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so… 
 
ROM 8:8 
…and those who are in the flesh cannot please God. 
 
ROM 8:9 
However, you (believers in Christ) are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. 
 
ROM 8:10 
If (1) Christ is in(dwelling) you (believers, and He is), though the body isdead because of (the) sin (nature), yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. 
 
ROM 8:10 
If (1) Christ is in(dwelling) you (believers, and He is), though the body isdead because of (the) sin (nature), yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. 
 
ROM 8:11 
But if (1) the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you (and it does), He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give (the Zoe) life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. 
 
ROM 8:12 
So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the (deeds of the) flesh… 
 
ROM 8:13 
…for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if (you are living) by the (leading of the) Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 
 
ROM 8:14 
For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 
 
ROM 8:15 
For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” 
 
ROM 8:16 
The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God… 
 
ROM 8:17 
…and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him. 
 
ROM 8:18 
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 
 
GODLINESS

Reverence for God…in a relationship with Him…honoring Him as your Sovereign.  Accepting a free gift from God, at the moment of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, whereby God removes helplessness, hopelessness, 
and condemnation and restores us to a permanent and unbreakable relationship with Him. 
 
RIGHTEOUSNESS

A gift granted by God which imputes to us a quality we don't have that is unachievable by human effort.  In so doing, He makes us forever acceptable to Him.  When we are living this righteousness and producing its fruit we are obeying everything He commands in His Word.  God’s righteousness is free of charge through faith in the person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ. 
 
1JO 1:9
If (3) we (whosoever…especially unbelievers) confess (agree with God completely concerning) our sins (and our sinfulness from physical birth…maybe you will and maybe you won’t…you have a choice), He (God the Father) is faithful (he always does the same thing) and righteous (free from sin Himself thus completely qualified) to forgive us (unbelievers of) our sins and (He is free) to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (by imputing His own righteousness to us).
 
PRO 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. // In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. 
 
DEU 31:8
The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed 
 
ISA 30:18
Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; How blessed are all those 
who long for Him.
