Corrupt Desires, Dishonored Bodies (Romans 1:24-27)

Romans Sermon Series - ECC

In Romans 1:18-23, we saw why God’s righteous wrath is revealed against our unrighteous world. Instead of responding to the knowledge we all have of God by worshiping him as God, being who God created us to be, we have suppressed his truth and substituted his glory. Now, in vv. 24-32 we will see how God’s wrath is revealed. But the reason Paul is describing this grim picture of our unrighteousness is ultimately to show our need for the gospel. Our alienation from God doesn’t have to be the end of the story! In this sermon, pastor Matt reminds us that the hope for our upside-down world is the reconciling work of God in Christ. Only when we have been freed to honor God as God will we discover his good purpose for mankind, and find that his word is life, and his glory our joy.
