Righteous Wrath, Unrighteous World (Romans 1:18-23)

Romans Sermon Series - ECC

Before explaining how the gospel is the power of God for salvation to all who believe, Paul shows why need the gospel by exposing the true condition of humanity: our false worship, our moral bankruptcy, our utter depravity, and our inexcusable guilt before God (Rom. 1:18-3:20). In this sermon, pastor Matt reminds us that God’s grace is good news only to those who realize they deserve God’s wrath. It is only when we realize that we have rejected God, stand guilty before him, and can do nothing to save ourselves that we will come to Jesus and see that what God has done in Christ is truly good and glorious news.
