Reading in Romans 1:18-23 , a take away is that by accepting the Gospel message we receive God’s righteousness. Those who don’t accept Christ are captive to sin; susceptible to the godlessness and wickedness of this world.
Actions like suppressing the truth, not admitting God’s power, and not being thankful prompt God’s wrath. These actions are immature and arrogant. The intellectual and spiritual life are affected negatively so that some go down the path that leads to a life of strife.
Lord, we come to You in prayer today to accept Your power and divine nature. Your invisible qualities can be clearly seen. Sometimes You shout to us in a thunderstorm or paint a beautiful rainbow in the sky. May we all accept this truth and honor You rather than foolishly believe that something man-made has more long-term value and can better meet our needs. Lord … we give honor and praise today. Amen!
