A Sermon on Romans 2:1

God's Righteous Judgment

Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things. (ESV)

Does sin really condem all of us? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones introduces Romans 2 by connecting the theme from Romans 1, that God has provided a righteousness by faith for man. The Jews listened to Paul preach, but thought he was only condemning the Gentiles. Paul declares they were missing the whole point. The Jews thought they were already saved based on their works. Sometimes, we too can fall into that trap. Dr. Lloyd-Jones points out that sin in our lives can lead us into many consequences when interpreting the Scripture. Dr. Lloyd-Jones outlines the various ways sin skews our view of Scripture and ends with a warning to us all. We should never be so wrapped up with knowledge and the studying of theology that we miss repentance at the heart of the Gospel. Learning the Scriptures draws us closer to Christ so that our daily practice matches our position as a child of God
