The Gospel of God #19: A Story of Wrath
March 7, 2014
TODAY'S BIBLE READING:
Romans 2:5, in its context of the grace and love and kindness of God, is the one verse in the Bible that many people do not want us to read. How do we understand this part of the Bible’s teaching? How do we apply it to our lives? What does Paul mean by this “Day” that is to come? Why does that make any difference to our lives now? As I have been praying through this passage as we return to Romans, I have become more and more convinced that this teaching here in this verse in its context is the key to unlocking many a human heart, and gathering a fresh sense of all that Christ is and all that Christ has done. There is an overarching story that has to be told, a narrative, and embedded in it is this Day, the Day of Wrath. The title then for the sermon is a “A Story of Wrath” – and we will be looking at a Bible verse they do not want you to read, and which contains in its context of the love of Christ in the gospel one of the most important messages for contemporary Christianity today. Come along, bring friends, pray, and may God be with us, this coming Sunday at College Church: The Gospel of God #19, Romans 2:5, “A Story of Wrath.” ]]>
