TODAY’S STUDY

Romans Chapter 1 - You are Guilty as Charged

 
OFFERING VERSE
 
‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.’ Remember to give with the motivation suggested in Scripture 
 
Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful (grace oriented) giver. 
 
Do you think God is like you? 
 
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. 
 
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” 
 
…for God is not a God of confusion… 
 
ARBITRARY
Subject to individual whim and without restriction; contingent solely upon one’s own discretion; not living to a standard…unrestricted by law… capricious. 
 
“Anything in moderation!” 
 
“It’s all good!  It’s all good!” 
 
…as it is written, “THERE IS NONE (not one creature who is) RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE…” 
 
…for all (creatures) have sinned and fall short of the glory of God… 
 
IN GOD’S LAW
You are guilty as charged…all creatures are guilty as charged…and there is no way to talk yourself out of the indictment. 
 
POSSIBLE RESPONSES TO GOD’S LAWS
 
You can obey God’s laws and receive blessings
 
You can disobey God’s laws…you can break the law…and receive a just penalty 
 
IN GOD’S LAW
You are guilty as charged…all creatures are guilty as charged…and there is no way to talk yourself out of the indictment. 
 
For in it (the gospel message) the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.” 
 
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and (against all) unrighteousness of men (unbelievers) who suppress the truth in unrighteousness… 
 
IN GOD’S LAW
You are guilty as charged…all creatures are guilty as charged…and there is no way to talk yourself out of the indictment. 
 
INDICTMENT
A formal accusation which initiates a criminal case. 
 
For as through the one man (Adam’s) disobedience the many (all human creatures) were made (considered) sinners, even so through the obedience of the One (the Lord Jesus Christ) the many will be made righteous. 
 
For we also once were foolish ourselves (while unbelievers), disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. 
 
But when the kindness of God our Savior (the Lord Jesus Christ) and His (unconditional) love for mankind appeared… 
 
He (God the Father) saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in (self)-righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and (through) renewing by the (baptism of God the) Holy Spirit… 
 
…whom He (God the Father) poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior… 
 
…so that being justified by His (God the Father’s) grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. 
 
When the jailer awoke and saw the prison doors opened, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped. 
 
But Paul cried out with a loud voice, saying (to the jailer), “Do not harm yourself, for we are all here!” 
 
And he (the jailer) called for (turned on the) lights and rushed in, and trembling with fear he fell down before Paul and Silas… 
 
…and after he brought them out (of the prison), he said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” 
 
They (Paul and Silas) said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus (Christ), and you will be saved, you and (everyone in) your household (who also believes).” 
 
For this reason (because the Lord Jesus Christ is the Sovereign judge and the victor in the Creator-creature conflict) we (believers in Christ) must pay much closer attention to what we have heard (the gospel message), so that we do not drift away from it. 
 
For if (1) the word (the law) spoken through angels proved unalterable (and it did), and every transgression and disobedience received a just penalty (and it did)… 
 
…how will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? 
 
ABIDE (meno)
 
To stay in a given place…an active sharing of life and of death…to remain in…to dwell in 
 
“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” 
 
“He who believes in the Son (the Lord Jesus Christ) has (the) eternal life (the Zoe life); but he who does not obey the (command to believein the) Son will not see (the Zoe) life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” 
 
For since the creation of the world His (God’s) invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made (the whole created universe), so that they (unbelievers) are without excuse. 
 
And He (the Lord Jesus Christ) is the radiance of His (God the Father’s) glory and (the Lord Jesus Christ is) the exact representation of His (God the Father’s) nature, and (the Lord Jesus Christ) upholds all things by the word of His power. 
 
DUTY
A binding obligation by virtue of being placed in a position, expressed as respect for the placement 
 
For they (unbelievers) exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. 
 
“For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” 
 
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time,//casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 
 
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy,//to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
