Paul ends the section of scripture proving the natural man's guilt before God with this "no-holds-barred" description of Man's unrighteousness using a myriad of Old Testament references. The law reveals unrighteousness, because we cannot follow it. It does not establish our righteousness because we can.

The Jews had certainty of their possession of the truth and their privileged position. However, this led some of them to be pretentious. For those of us with certainty of the words of truth (Prov. 22), and a privileged position of a local church that God is blessing, we must make sure we do not fall into the same trap. We accomplish this by being doers of God's Words, not hearers only.

Passage: Romans 1:18-32
This is week 4 of the LWC Roman's series. Rom 1:18-32 "contextualizes" the gospel for us so we can understand our need for God's righteousness, because humanity, especially the Gentile world, is ungodly and unrighteous.

Passage: Romans 1:1-15
We see several important things in the first 15 verses of Romans. Among them are: The identity of a servant must come before the mentality of a called one. Also, Paul the apostle to the Gentiles introduces the gospel to all. This is an ushering in of the church age as we know it. Also, we have a mutual faith. This means that how we live out our faith matters to each other. Getting together matters, How you are doing impacts me, and our interactions in the faith matter. We need each other.
