Romans 1:16-25

Romans is the Apostle Paul’s most systematic letter, covering the main themes of theology he thought necessary to pass on. Paul describes turning away from God in several ways, perhaps the most surprising is it being a lack of thankfulness to God.

Restorative Grace through the Gospel of Christ (vs. 16-17)

The gospel (good news of Christ) is to be honored


The gospel is the power of God for salvation


It is effective for those who believe/have faith


In it we find God can be both righteous and gracious


Revealed Wrath for Rejecting Truth (vs. 18-25)

Consequence to ungodliness and unrighteousness


No excuse for not knowing, honoring and thanking God


Truth is suppressed and futile thinking leads to idolatry


God gives us up to pursue freely our own desires


Right Responses to the Sovereign God (vs. 16-17, 21, 25)

Faith in Christ and His righteousness given to us


Honor God for who He is
