The Longsuffering of God Sunday, August 11, 2019
Romans 2:2-3 - There is no way to escape the judgement of God. Sometimes people laugh and joke around about sin, but judgement is coming and so we must warn others about the conditions of their soul. Paul warns both the Jews and the Gentiles that there is no excuse and all are under the impending judgement of God. Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones explained how Paul preached directly to the Jews to warn them of how sin was blinding their view in Romans 2:2-3. Not only does sin blind us, it gives us a false sense of security and causes us to take God’s goodness for granted. The Romans gave many arguments for why God’s wrath was not coming, but Paul refutes each one. One of the biggest arguments against God’s judgement is that God is good. Dr. Lloyd-Jones tells that God is indeed good in the fact that He does not immediately strike the world dead for sin, but He must condemn sin because He is also just. Paul says God is exhibiting forbearance and long-suffering in terms of our sin. He is slow to anger and is not willing for anyone to perish. This is the exact reason why God sent His Son into the world to save those from this impending wrath. He alone is our atonement for sin. Do not ignore His warning!
