The Day of Judgement
A Sermon on Romans 2:6-10
He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. (ESV)
What will be revealed on the day of judgement? After a thorough study of the wrath and judgment of God, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones examines Romans 2:6-10, which reveals the impending day of condemnation. Paul is preaching to both Jews and Gentiles explaining that the judgment will be both universal and individual. In the same way, no one will be judged according to their nation or their family; it is solely based on your heart and personal righteousness. The entire human race will be characterized into two people groups: the righteous and the unrighteous. Dr. Lloyd-Jones further discusses how Paul differentiates these two groups. If you are seeking the glory of God, the honor that He gives, immortality in His presence, and righteousness by faith, then you will be granted eternal life. However, if you are malicious toward God, self-centered, and defiant of truth, you will be subject to tribulation and anguish. May we closely examine our hearts and always seek the righteousness of the Lord. This message also brings a great reminder to share the gospel with unbelievers, for they too will see the day of judgement.
