Living by Faith:  Matters of the Heart

Romans 2:6-29

“The righteous will live by faith.”

Romans 1:17b

 

  • God graciously rewards believers when we live righteously in this life. 2:6-7

 

  • God impartially judges all those who reject his son and live for themselves.2:5,8-9,11

 

  • God’s righteousness is revealed in us when we obey His word. 2:12-16

 

  • God is blasphemed by those who hypocritically proclaim the truth of His word but do not obey His word.  2:17-24

 

  • God praises believers who choose to live for Him as an overflow of a spiritually sensitive heart. 2:25-29

 

Application:

  • Do you ever find yourself saying one thing and doing another?
  • Do you have a heart for God?
  • Are you living for yourself or for the Lord?
  • Does your testimony for Christ cause others to give praise to God?
  • Are you choosing to obey the word of God?
