Sermon Outline

A DEADLY CHAIN REACTION

Romans 1:18-32

Introduction: God’s wrath is an unpopular and uncomfortable topic. We usually think of God’s wrath coming at the final judgement but the apostle Paul says it is being revealed now.

  • I.THE REASON FOR GOD’S WRATH
  • A.The Progression of Godlessness and Wickedness (vv. 18-21)
  • 1.Suppress the truth of God
  • Do not glorify Him as God
  • Do not give thanks to Him
  • Thinking becomes futile and hearts are darkened
  • 2.Exchange the glory and truth of God for a lie (vv.23, 25)
  • 3.Live out the lie (vv. 26-28)
  • B.Humankind’s Fundamental Sin: the Rejection Of God
  • 1.Universal
  • 2.Deliberate
  • 3.Inexcusable
  • II.THE NATURE OF GOD’S WRATH
  • A.“Gives Us Over” (vv. 24, 26, 28)
  • 1.To sinful desires
  • 2.To shameful lusts
  • 3.To depraved minds
  • B.To Receive the Penalty of Their Error (v. 27)
  • C.God Must Act Justly

Conclusion: The first step in finding God’s grace and mercy is to admit our need for it. The wrath of God is an act of love meant for us to “hit bottom” and return to Him.
