Romans 1:2 - Do you struggle with waiting on God’s timing? Why does God seem to take so long to fulfill His promises? Considering all of the suffering in the world, why doesn’t God bring ultimate fulfillment now? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones presses us toward the Old Testament where we have to wait on our Lord. Many years had passed from the time that God promised a Messiah to the fulfillment of that promise. Listen as the Doctor examines Romans 1:2 and asks the question: why does Paul reference the Old Testament at all? Is the Old Testament disconnected from the New Testament? No! The Old Testament is part of the authoritative Word of God which shapes our very understanding of the Gospel. The writer of Romans wants us to understand the promise given so long ago is fulfilled in Jesus Christ. While God seems to have been silent for so many years, His purposes were being achieved. Humanity has proven that they cannot save themselves and desperately need a Savior. The sacrifice for sin has come in Christ and the Messiah must die and rise again. While God’s timing may be a mystery, we can trust him. His promises are fulfilled in Christ.
